Malaysia Bhd has built a greenhouse in the vicinity of Cerebral Palsy Johor (CPJ) to aid the association’s various activities. This includes providing agrotherapy for children with cerebral palsy and developing an income stream through the sale of crops grown for the association.
Kulim, through its Agrofarm division and Yayasan Johor Corp (Yayasan JCorp), had several discussions with CPJ to evaluate and propose the best possible assistance to address CPJ’s plan to actively and sustainably generate income for the association.
The greenhouse will be leveraged to facilitate therapy sessions for young students with agrotherapy, Kulim said in a press release.
Agrotherapy provides structured, hands-on activities in an agricultural setting and will help those with cerebral palsy to improve motor coordination, increase strength and endurance, as well as enhance communication through healing relationships with people, plants, and the surrounding ecosystem.
With the development of the greenhouse, which was funded by an investment of RM40,000 by Kulim, CPJ will also be able to grow crops of fresh fruits and vegetables in a conducive, self-sustaining environment.
