Your Pusat Rakyat LoyarBurok is changing

And we need your help.

Throughout January and February, the MCCHR team will be working on revamping the community space to serve you better. The new community centre will feature a café, a library and an activity space.

The café will not only serve good coffee, but will also offer a cosy space for you to meet friends and other like-minded people. We are also adding a study area to complement the library, where you can do your work. In the future, you can expect more events and activities at the community centre, including #UndiMsiaChats, film screenings, forums, seminars and workshops.

You can follow the project on its Facebook group, where we also crowdsource furniture, equipment, books and miscellaneous items. You can also help by volunteering your time and by donating money plants or money.
