Rita Home, situated in Taman Ria, Pekan Kapar, is among the first orphanages in Malaysia. It opened its doors in 1997 and has come a long way since then. The Home cares for children and adults with or without disabilities. It also accepts babies and toddlers and currently it houses 67 children, 8 single mothers, 35 senior citizens, 17 physically and mentally challenged residents with 20 staff to oversee day-to-day operations.
The needs of the home’s residents have increased through the years and Rita Home is looking for sponsorship to employ a nurse, a part-time physiotherapist and to support the children’s education, especially for the school-going kids.
