DJROA president Datuk Yew Cheng Hoe said the association organised a charity golf tournament last October to raise funds for the underprivileged.
"It was the biggest golf tournament we have organised so far, with about 100 participants.
"We raised RM18,000," said Yew, adding that they donated the money to several children's homes around Petaling Jaya last December.
"Besides donating to children's homes, we decided to use some of the funds to help the disabled," he said.
Wheelchair-bound Cha Seak Nee, 39, works at Taman Mega wet market which is near her house. She started working in the market about seven months ago, after quitting her job at a factory.
"We felt she needed a new wheelchair as her old one, which was about five years old, was in a bad condition," said Yew.
Cha has been wheelchair bound most of her life and was thankful for the contribution.
While three of the recipients are Petaling Jaya residents, the others are from Subang Jaya, Rawang and Batu Pahat, Johor.
"Some of the recipients were picked with the help of Damansara Utama assemblyman Dr Cheah Wing Yin while others approached us for help," said Yew.
Yew said the wheelchairs cost about RM1,000 each.
The association is planning to organise an even bigger golf tournament in the near future to raise more funds for the needy.
