Visit Children Sent To Welfare Homes, Says Rosmah | 17/02/2010
Untitled document KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 17 2010 (Bernama) -- Parents who sent their children to welfare homes because they could not afford to raise them should make time to visit them there, the Prime Minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, said Wednesday.

She said they should not leave the responsibility of taking care of the children solely on the caretakers of the welfare homes because the children still needed love from their biological parents.

Speaking to reporters after launching a new wing of the Ti-Ratana Children's Home here, Rosmah thanked the Ti-Ratana Welfare Association, which runs the home, for opening its doors to unwanted children.

"(But) there are also parents who leave their children here and never come to visit them," she added.

Rosmah said the new wing, comprising a three-storey block, costing RM1 million, was built from contributions by generous donors and could accommodate about 100 children.

She said another welfare home run by the association would be opened in Sri Gombak soon.

Earlier, Rosmah, who is the president of the Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti), presented a cheque for RM20,000 from Bakti to the Ti-Ratana Welfare Association.

Besides the Children's Home, the association also run a home for old folks and women.
