The Latter Day Saints Church Charity has donated $10,000 worth of furniture to the Penang Sangam Primary School.

School head teacher, Rajesh Kumar says they are fortunate to be assisted as their school suffered almost 95 percent damage during Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Kumar said the donation will definitely make an impact on the education of the children.

Brother Frank Stanford of the LDS Church Charity said he was pleased to assist the school as he was duty bound to reach out to the needy.

Stanford said this was a small token to boost the educational welfare of the children of Penang Sangam Primary school.

Assistant Minister for Health, Veena Bhatnagar thanked the LDS Church Charity and Brother Frank Stanford who was instrumental in securing the donation from New Zealand. 

Bhatnagar said they need such good Samaritans to care for the needy and the disadvantaged. 

The donation included 280 desks, 30 swivel chairs, three smart boards and two tables.
