Veterans Do Care
31 Aug 17
In conjunction with the 60th Merdeka Day and the 1st Anniversary of Malaysian Armed Forces Chinese Veterans Association (MACVA) on 31 Aug 17, the President led 40 members and spouses of MACVA to visit the Ti Ratana Orphanage Home at Salak Selatan Bharu.

It was very meaningful visit as the MACVs were reminded that there are many children in our midst who grow up without the much needed parental love and care. The Ti Ratana Orphanage Home in many ways provide the love and care for these children.

MACVA took this opportunity to donate RM16,800.00 to Ti Ratana Welfare Society as an appreciation for their wonderful service. The donation was handed over by MACVA President, Maj Tan Pau Son (Rtd) to Chief Reverend Dhammaratana.

Veteran Juga Prihatin
Sempena dengan sambutan Hari Merdeka yang ke 60 dan Hari Ulang Tahun Pertama Persatuan Veteran Cina Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (MACVA) pada 31 Ogos 17, Presiden MACVA telah mengetuai 40 orang ahli dan pasangan mereka melawat Rumah Anak Yatim Ti Ratana di Salak Selatan Baru.

Lawatan tersebut amat bermakna kerana ia mengingatkan ahli-ahli bahawa terdapat ramai kanak-kanak di kalangan kita yang membesar tanpa kasih sayang ibu bapa yang amat diperlukan. Rumah Anak Yatim Ti Ratana telah memainkan pelbagai peranan memberi kasih sayang kepada kanak-kanak tersebut.

MACVA mengambil kesempatan lawatan ini menderma RM16,800.00 kepada Badan Kebajikan Ti Ratana sebagai menghargai usaha murni mereka. Sumbangan tersebut diserahkan oleh Mej Tan Pau Son (Bersara) kepada Ketua Reverend Dhammaratana.

老兵的关怀
为配合庆祝我国独立六十週年和大馬华裔退伍军人协会成立一週年记念,一批四十多位老兵及夫人,在国庆日当天早上由会长陈保山少校(退休)带领造访座落于沙叻秀南村的迪啦達娜孤儿院。

此次的造访,意义重大。除了誏老兵们見识到在我们週遭有很多在没有父母亲情中成長的孩子外,也见证了迪啦達娜孤儿院在尽其所能去为那些孤儿填补亲情关怀的空缺及散播人间温暖提拨幼苗的温馨事迹。

为表達对迪啦達娜孤儿院所付出的爱心和努力的讚赏,大馬华裔退伍军人協会同仁乐捐一万六千八百元给该院作为活动基金。捐款是由大马华裔退伍军人协会会长陈保山少校移交给该院主持尊贵的 谭马啦达那先生(Reverend Dhammaratana)。
