Profile Description

(The Pusat) was founded by the LATE MR.S.K MANIKUMAR A/L S. KANAN, himself physically handicapped, with a vision to provide an environment for the benefits of 'Special' children. In 1997 The Pusat was officially registered the home under the welfare as a non-profit organization. The founder dedicated his whole life to fulfill this vision, until he suddenly passed away in a motor vehicle accident in 2006, at the age of 43.
