  • 0.SummaryIn this project, we are required to do an environmentalcommunity service for the benefit of the public. Though the concept of environmentalcommuinity service is not very new its has eveloped in the past few years. We took the community service as our commitment to the society and relate the community service with the environment. The process of doing the environment community service process is beneficialbothforusandthesociety.

    We have chosen an Old Folks Home in Kajang, Rumah Caring Kajang as the commuinity. After the first visit to the home, we analysed the problem faced by the home and came out with the solution after discussing with our tutor. At the end of the day, we have done the mosquitoes netting, artwork on recycled pallet, signage and landscapingforthem.

  • 1. IntroductionThe organization we were engage with is Rumah Caring Kajang located at Lot1202/M Taman Cahaya Sungai Chua, 43000 Kajang, Selangor. Occupying a single storey houses in a neighbourhood just beside A Wet Thai Garden which they just moved in this year during early april. It is a nonprofit organization looking into the welfare of mainly old folks and even down syndrome. Currently they are running this housetakingcareof22inmatesrangingfromage21yearsto95yearsold.

    Before they moved in to the new home in Taman Cahaya, Rumah Caring Kajang first home is two double storey houses located at Taman Muhibah taking care of old folks, single parent, orphans, down syndrome, disabled and drug rebab. They have been served eviction notices by the authority and after numerous appeals, the final notices was to move out by the end of 2015. They have been offered a piece of land at a discounted price and now they are building a new home. During that period, Rumah Caring Kajang were given a 6 year contract temporary home for the inmates tostayinandtherestheplacewearenowhelpingoutatTamanCahaya.

    The organization was founded by Miss Wendy Yap in the year 2004 catering 50 inmates ranging from age 50 year to 95 years old inclusive of care givers. Exception intake for inmates below 50 years old will only be considered under certain criteria in terms of health and needs. Since this organization is a nonprofit organization, they are mainly supported by contribution from the public to sustain the homes and meet the needs of old folks home with better nursing, health and logistic care. They also provide them a loving and caring environment and to uphold them with moral and spiritual support. Every weekends, the organization would bring the old folks for someoutingsoutside.

    Other than that, the organization also look into the welfare and needs of single mothers with children and young unmarried mother. The organization also help them emotionally and spiritually by counseling as many often tries to attempt suicide. They also help to raise funds through various activities to subsidized their monthly expenses. In addition, the organization would organize trips or outing for them and theirchildrentimetotime.

  • 3.ProjectProposalRumah Caring Kajang is a non profit organisation. It is not very well facilitated as the organisation newly moved to a new place and does not have extra fund to build up or all facilities in the home. This causes an uncomfortable state and environment of it. For example, the environment of the house are not covered by many trees and this causesaverybadventilationandhotinatthearea.

    We have chosen the Old Folks House to be our organisation for this community projects as most of the senior citizens have been abandoned by the society. Volunteers nowadays are more focusing on helping the orphanage, property or the disable rather than them. This is because society are more focusing on youth. This is whywethinkthatwehavetodosomethingforthem.

    To give them a better and liveable environment, we decided our main focus is the empty front yard. The front yard is potentially for planting plants and landscaping design. According to our observation, the community did not have any shading in the front yard. Beside doing plantation on the yard, we also discovered a abandoned cylinder concrete. After a brainstorming, the cylinder concrete are potentially for create a DIY bench. As a next generation, we are responsible to make our environment more sustain and liveable. So, we will visit the home twice a month or onceaweektocheckingthetheplantationandlandscapingremainagoodcondition.

    Beside landscaping, we also will provide Signboard, cabinet for storage, shoes racks, mural arts, bench and lighting by using the recycled materials and recyclable materials. The estimated cost the budget for this project is RM500800. We are trying to get sponsorship from Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd. to cover the materials that couldusebytherecycledmaterials.

  • Most of the old folks that live in Rumah Caring Kajang have a miserable pass and maybe losing their family. We try to give them our caring which is visit and chat with them. After we know about each of their story we also try to comfort them with some encourage talk. We also cook some delicious food for them to eat to achieve their happily.

    The hollow of linear skylight cause the mosquito fly into the house make the old folk cannot sleep well and made them got skin problem(swollen and tickle).It will also effect their healty problem.
