Cheshire Home 2007
A group of devotees represented Karma Norbuling Buddhist Centre together with the Resident Master visited the Penang Cheshire Home on December 11th.
The home is a place for the physically handicapped, managed by a group of volunteers headed by Toh Puan Datuk Hajjah Sadiah (Wife of Tun Hj. Sardon Jubir, former Governor of Penang) that was set up in 1978.
The aim of the Home is to help the physically handicapped adjust to life, to be independent and take their place in society amongst their able-bodied brethren.
In its homely ambience, residents learn a variety of handicrafts which are sold in the Home as well as outside. We also help residents to integrate into society by finding them jobs in factories and sheltered workshops.
