MBBS Batch 12 DHO Padang Terap – Day 4 – Maternal and Child Health III

Most of the time, thing will get bored and comes to an end when it reaches the lucky number three, for instance High School Musical & The Matrix. However, there’s always an exception just like the upcoming iPhone 4! Today was the last day for MCH posting, yet it was the most interesting day as we went to visit Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti(PDK) Kuala Nerang.

Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti(PDK) Kuala Nerang was previously known as Pusat Pembangunan Kanak-kanak Cacat Kuala Nerang. It was officially opened on 21 February 1993 in a rent house but moved to current location on 17 October 1999.

We were welcomed ardently by the Chief Executive of PDK Kuala Nerang, Tuan Haji Bahadun Bin Rashid(AMK, PPN, PJK) & Supervisor of PDK Kuala Nerang, Pn. Siti Mariam Bt Muhamad. Then, they gave us a brief introduction about PDK, the aims, specifications, advantages, activities organized, budget allocation, facilities and services available, etc.

Not in so many words, PDK was established as a measurement to involve actively parents, families, as well as the whole community to help Orang Kurang Upaya(OKU) to stay and live like a normal person. There were various activities running everyday to train gross motor(Kemahiran Motor Kasar), fine motor(Kemahiran Motor Halus), social & language(Perkembangan social & bahasa) by 3M, self-care(pengurusan diri), pre-school education(pra school) & creativity(Kreativiti). Those activities were conducted by five experienced teachers. Besides fund from government(JPD), they also got a lot of sponsor from private sector. Just a month ago, they got sponsor from Kementerian Pelancongan Pulau Langkawi for a trip to Pulau Langkawi. Currently, there were 54 children in the center. Then, we had a Q&A session with Tuan Haji Bahadun and Pn. Siti Mariam. We also bought the children some biscuits and jelly.

We were served with biscuits and milo while waiting for the children to arrive. Then, one of the teacher, Noryati showed us the facilities available in the center.

Starting from 10am, the children with parents started to reach one by one as PDK will pass the allowance to them today.

Alfred with the children suffered from Edward’s Syndrome.

Ryan with the Down’s syndrome child. Others include Hyperactive, Cerebral Palsy.

Before left, we took photos with all PDK Kuala Nerang staffs and bought two handcrafts made by the children as our support to them.

When God closes a door, He opens a play where all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. Yes, they’ve born to be a special child in this world, and their life is going up in flame when the time goes by. However, when you’re willing to spend a few seconds and take a look at them, their teary eyes, the innocent smile, you will actually found out they are the angels, with platonic heart, seeking for the heartest and kind person. All they need is just someone to hold their hand a little, lead them the way to live like us. Thus, appreciate your bountiful life and share with the one who needs.
