The Joondalup Brothers Rugby Union Football Club comprising some 37 youth and adults from Perth, Australia, came to spruce up Tasputra Perkim recently.

They cleaned up the garden and swimming pool as well as painted the main sitting area, the gate and front door.

Chairman and founder of Tasputra Elahe Norman said she had extended an invitation to SMK Bangsar’s children with special needs and their teachers to attend and interact with the rugby youths from Perth to form new friendships among them and encourage cultural exchange.

Joondalup Brothers Rugby organiser Liam Smyth said their club organised these cultural exchange trips as part of their activities.

They had attended similar activities in orphanages in Phuket, Thailand last year.
