A Visit to Eden Handicap Service Centre Berhad

The greatest happiness is by doing charity

 

Yeah!! This is the experience that will linger in all our minds forever. Last Saturday, Exabytes had a great and meaningful moment with members at Eden Handicap Service Centre. The Eden Handicap Service Center Berhad is a charitable non-profit Christian-run organization providing FREE services to people with disabilities. It was started in 1991 with a simple concept: To help the disabled come to terms with their disabilities, to engage them in fellowship with other disabled and able-bodied friends, and to provide adequate training to place them in suitable jobs.

 

During that beautiful Saturday morning, we were welcomed by the members of Eden with a warm song “We are together”. Mr Chan Kee Siak, CEO of Exabytes later presented a cheque worth RM 800 to Mr Bertie, the General Manager of Eden Handicap Service Center. In addition to the donation of cash, we also have fulfilled some of Eden’s wish list! These include 5 units of trolley, 1 unit of Motorola walkie-talkie, 1 Canon color laser printer.

 

Here, we would like to thank our clients who participated in our co-marketing campaign with Nuffnang last July. This is because we donated RM 50 or RM 100 to Eden from each of their signup with us depending on the hosting plan they purchased.

 

To show how much we appreciate them, here we link you to their sites!

Now, the peak of the day! All of us get to play along with the children and disabled people. Not only was it funny and happy, it was one great experience which all of us will never forget. “Musical chair” was the game-of-the-day that brightened up everyone. Mr. Bertie then enlightened us with the history and overview of Eden with his humorous speech.

You will know how excited we all were by catching some of the snapshots below.
