The place is run by one owner together with 3 other staff to help him in taking care of the occupants in the organization. As this place is far away from the city, it is not known by many people which means they received less donations and this is the main reason for the student nurses of batch 94/July 2022 decide to contribute something to this organization through this community project.

The occupants seemed very delightful and enjoyed the activities with the presence of the student nurses. First of all, they have a senamrobik session, get to know sessions where they mix up and communicate with the occupants and have colouring and thumb painting with a variety of watercolour choices on one big manila card. Everyone gives the best to bring joy throughout the activities which are unforgettable moments and experiences for both the student nurses and the occupants.

After the activities, the student nurses distribute goodies bags to each occupant, followed by hand over the donation to Mr. Manivannan, the owner of the organization and having photography session with all the occupants in Pusat Jagaan Kanak-kanak kurang upaya Kirtash.
