Jakarta, MINA – The Managing Committee of Kerala Samajam Indonesia (KSI), one of the Indian Regional Associations in Indonesia representing the southernmost state of Kerala in India, has recently handed over donations to a number of orphanages in Jakarta.
“The 200-member association, recognized by the Indian Embassy in Jakarta, has been formed with an intention to create harmonious relations among the community,” Benny Matthew, President of the KSI, stated here on Monday.
Mathew said, one of the initiative by the present KSI Managing Committee was to conduct regular visits by its members to various Orphanages in Jabodetabek and extend the possible support to the needy ones.
“The most recent visit was to Panti Asuhan Harapan Remaja at Rawamangun East Jakarta, Sunday, where the KSI members donated food, clothes and money to the 50 orphan students there,” he said.
KSI has organized similar activities very recently at Pusat Santunan Keluarga Pusaka Cilincing and Binayatul Abna Yayasan Pondok Kopi. Also the students from Binayatul Abna Yayasan were invited to perform cultural arts during the Ifthar (Bukber) organized by KSI last month.
KSI plans to do similar activities at many more orphanages and schools in Indonesia where more KSI members alongwith their family and children would participate in the visits so that their new generation children can also observe and understand the life’s difficult stages as well.(R/R01/RS5)
