Young people with special needs and learning difficulties benefit from two new ‘Ronald McDonald Sensory Rooms’ thanks to funds raised by RBC Race for the Kids Kuala Lumpur 2017!

 

Opening in MELAKA and TAIPING on 29 January 2018, the two new Ronald McDonald Sensory Rooms are designed to help young people with special needs and learning disabilities build cognitive skills and self-confidence. These therapeutic rooms contain multi-sensory equipment to stimulate sight, sound, touch, and smell.

The opening of the two new rooms in Sekolah Semangat Maju Taiping (SSMT) and The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) Melaka, was made possible through funds raised from the second RBC Race for the Kids charity run in Kuala Lumpur, which was held in October 2017. Over 2,000 runners took part to raise more than RM200,000 in support of RMHC Malaysia. Since its launch in 2016, the RBC Race for the Kids in Kuala Lumpur has already helped RMHC Malaysia build four Sensory Rooms at special centers across Malaysia.

Victor Sim, Vice President, RMHC Malaysia, said the rooms play an important role in helping RMHC Malaysia fulfil its mission of creating and supporting programs that improve the health and well-being of children. “Since 1999, we have channelled more than RM2.7 million towards our Sensory Rooms program and more than 7,000 children have benefited.” Mr Sim said. “We’re grateful for the strong community support from RBC, which led to the development of our two new rooms, and we’re looking forward to another successful fundraising event in 2018.”

Preparations are already underway for the third RBC Race for the Kids 2018. This will be on October 27. You can support RMHC by signing up for the race and participating in the fundraising and donation events.
