KUALA LUMPUR: The Gandhi Memorial Trust is to present a special award to the life president of The Pure Life Society, Datin Paduka Mother A. Mangalam (pix), for her immense contribution towards public service for more than 60 years.
GMT chairman S. Radhakrishnan said the award would be presented to Mangalam, 88, in conjunction with the United Nations international day of non-violence at an event to be held at the Royal Lake Club here on Thursday.
"Mother Mangalam is an outstanding teacher and caring mother extraordinaire to the poor and downtrodden," he said.
Mother Mangalam started teaching in 1948 until she took optional retirement from the teaching service in 1977 to devote full time work for the Pure Life Society's orphanage. – Bernama
