Azimfamily Azimfamily: Thank You Father

Thank You Father

SEREMBAN: Men jogging at Taman Tasik City Park at Seremban 2 here were pleasantly surprised when they were stopped by a group of people yesterday.

The staff of Negri Sembilan National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN), in conjunction with Fathers Day, handed them bottles of mineral water and handkerchiefs.

State LPPKN director Ramli Shabudin said the items were distributed to fathers at the park as a token of appreciation and in recognition of their struggle to look after their families.

"This is something to cheer on this special day," he said at the programme yesterday. Co-organised with the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry, Ramli said the programme themed "Thank You My Father" (Terima Kasih Ayahku) was held at the recreation centre to promote a healthy lifestyle among fathers so that they could serve as an example to their family in raising awareness on living a healthy life. Asked why they chose handkerchiefs as gifts, he said it was a symbolic object which represented a father in many ways.
"Apart from that, it can be used to wipe their sweat after exercising."

A total of 300 bottles of mineral water and handkerchiefs were distributed between 8am and noon.

Apart from the gifts, LPPKN also organised a reproductive health service programme free at five of its Nur Sejahtera clinics throughout the state.
Among the services provided were family planning techniques and family counselling as well as individual counseling.

"Normally, one has to pay RM10 for the checks. But from June 17 to 19, in conjunction with Fathers Day, we are giving the service free."
