About Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children Association Centre Melaka
The foundation of a Centre for the special needs children in Malacca begins early 2000. The need to expand rises as the Centre in Johor was getting overcrowded and also because there were a number of special children who could use their service in Malacca.
Soon, they found a double story bungalow in Bukit Baru. The place was ideal as it is quite big and the compound is spacious. A few changes about the house were necessary. So, it was renovated. Iron grills were fixed around the upstairs balcony to avoid children from climbing over. Two extra bathrooms were built and wooden fencing by the stairs was also necessary for the inmate’s safety.
In May 2000, they started their operation. There were only 10 inmates at that time. The person in charge was one of the senior staff from Johor. She imparted her knowledge, expertise and experience to the attendants taking care of the inmates.
The number of the inmates grew gradually. Now, they are hosting 55 inmates. The home was officially opened on 20th April 2002 by Malacca’s Chief Ministers wife, YAB Datin Seri Hajah Asmah Bt.Abdul Rahman.
