6th April 2014 the society conducted a motivational and awareness program for the needy youths at its center.
DSP Supramaniam, Deputy OCPD Tanjung Malim shared with the youths statistics of crimes amongst youth and the adverse implications of getting into crime. The aim of this session was to create an awareness to the youth to stay off from crime even, if it seems to be the easy route to making money etc.
The program was then followed up by an international motivational speaker Mr Muruka Nathan, who then pressed upon the benefits of getting an education. Also how to set targets and how to achieve it. He also shared techniques of positive affirmation and memory techniques.
The program ended with the society recognizing two students who excelled in their PMR with straight As. Monthly food provisions were also given out at this program to 25 families. The society needs funds and support to continue these projects.Members of the public are welcomed to come forward to support these projects by becoming a sponsors or as volunteers.
Centraid Guru Dharma Society’s welfare arm organised two mobile medical Eye camps this term. The first eye camp was held in the Rumah Orang-orang Tua Seri Setia Petaling Jaya in early June 2013. Hussein Onn Eye Hospital and APEX jointly organised this program with the society. 66 resident old folks were given an opportunity to have a complete eye check with special focus on cataract conditions. APEX offered to sponsor cataract operations for the old folks that required it and wished to do so. Bring the check up to the home made it possible for us to extend this check up to a larger number of old folks.
Two weeks from the first Eye camp, the society together with their partners ran another mobile Eye camp at PJS Community hall. Hussein Onn Eye Hospital brought its mobile eye clinic van to the vicinity where all the people from the vicinity got a chance to have a complete eye check. Obstetrical & Gynecological Society also joined this event to conduct free pap smear and breast test for the needy ladies. Volunteer doctors and nurses conducted general medical check up at this event. A total of 276 people i.e. the lesser fortunate from the vicinity participated in this medical camp.
The society makes it a point to run at least one free mobile medical camp for the benefit of the needy every year. The Medical camp to date includes general health check up, women’s health awareness program on breast and cervical cancer, dental and eye care. We welcome organisations to join us to run future medical camps for the needy as well as to sponsor the events. You may do this as your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects. Together we can touch lives and make a difference. Contact us via email or visit us at our center on Sunday mornings.

Nārāyana Guru is revered for his Vedic knowledge, poetic proficiency, openness to the views of others, non-violent philosophy and his resolve to set aright social wrongs. Nārāyana Guru was instrumental in setting the spiritual foundations for social reform in today’s Kerala and was one of the most successful social reformers who tackled caste in India. He demonstrated a path to social emancipation without invoking the dualism of the oppressed and the oppressor.
