Rosmah Mansor, the wife of Malaysian prime minister, today (16 April 2018) led a team for an annual visit to a Sikh orphanage in Kuala Lumpur.

She donated RM20,000. Another group had also come along to doing their bit in extending assistance to the Gurpuri Foundation.

Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti), now led by Rosmah as its president, has been making annual visits during Vasakhi to Gurpuri for many years now.

Founded in 2000, Gurpuri Foundation provides orphaned and neglected children a ‘loving and caring environment where they can blossom into responsible adults’.
