This Unique McDonald's Outlet In Tampin Has A Sensory Room For Special Needs Children
If you've been to Tampin, Negeri Sembilan recently, you may have noticed a unique-looking McDonald's outlet
Having opened at the end of 2020, this relatively new McDonald's outlet is the first to have a unique design that's inspired by the long roofs of traditional Negeri Sembilan homes.
Strategically located within close proximity to the Melaka-Negeri Sembilan state border, the building was originally a rest house that was used as a multi-purpose hall and motel, among other uses.
After being out of operation for many years, it was taken over by McDonald's Malaysia and transformed into the McD outlet it is today.
Watch this video to see the transformation:
In addition to the cool design, what makes this McD outlet extra noteworthy is that it has a sensory room for kids with special needs
The Ronald McDonald - Yayasan Jaafar Ahmad Sensory Room was prepared for kids with special needs and learning difficulties, especially those from B40 families, to have a place to improve their cognitive skills and self confidence.
Since 1999, the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has been establishing Ronald McDonald Sensory Rooms nationwide.
To date, RMHC has developed a total of 35 sensory rooms throughout Malaysia, making it the largest network of sensory rooms in the country. With a sponsorship cost of more than RM4 million, these rooms have benefited more than 7,000 children, including in Sabah and Sarawak.
Besides being a spot for Malaysians to enjoy their favourite McD meals, McDonald's also hopes that this Tampin outlet will contribute to the socio-economic development of Negeri Sembilan
In line with the government's goal of transforming Negeri Sembilan into a developing state, McDonald's aims to not only help the state's socio-economic development, but also offer employment and career development opportunities for the local community.
As part of this, McDonald's Malaysia also handed over corporate zakat payments worth RM180,000 to the Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (MAINs) at the Tampin outlet's official opening ceremony on 8 March 2022. This money will be distributed to golongan asnaf and those in need throughout Negeri Sembilan.
The next time you're in Negeri Sembilan, make sure to drop by and check out the McDonald's Tampin outlet to see the unique design and sensory room for yourself.
And of course, treat yourself to some yummy eats while you're there too! ;)
