How I celebrate Earth Day 2010

Earth Day falls on April 22nd every year.

And for the first time I volunteered as a committee member for my company, Aker Solutions, to organize an event in conjunction with Earth Day 2010 at Tasputra PERKIM, Jalan Ampang Hilir 5, KL, as part of the company's Corporate Social Responsibility. Tasputra is a day-care centre for handicapped children.

This event has been covered by the local newspapers, The Star, Berita Harian and NST.

"The special children of Tasputra PERKIM can now undergo outdoor therapy in a whole new environment at the centre's newly-created herb garden. The garden was jointly sponsored and created by Aker Solutions and Terra Garden in conjunction with the Earth Day celebration. It consists of herbal plants that are used for therapeutic treatment." - The Star, 27 April 2010

People at Tasputra always welcome a helping hand from the public in any forms. You can either donate money or food or be a part-time volunteer at the centre.
