Home for Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children in Banting, Selangor
The home was built at a cost of RM2.2 million contributed by Lion-Parkson Foundation (LPF) on a 4.17 acres piece of land worth RM1.2 million donated by Lion Group.
The funds to build the Home came from a series of TV programs in 2008 and the Million Dollar Dance Grand Finale Charity Show in February 2009, both produced by LPF Chairman, Puan Sri Chelsia Cheng.
The Home which can accommodate 100 children was officially opened by Puan Sri Chelsia Cheng and National Shuttler, Dato’ Lee Chong Wei on 4 November 2012. The expansion of the Home will enable it to accommodate another 100 children and an old folks home.
