Please help the physically and mentally challenged!

Mr Morgun, the founder of Pusat Penjagaan Kanak-kanak Cacat Klang, Selangor called me up two days ago. He spoke about the Charity Dinner that they are organising on 26th October, 2007 at 7.30pm at the Grand Ballroom Centro, Centro, Klang to raise funds for the welfare of the centre.

He mentioned about the financial crisis that the centre is presently experiencing since a couple of months back. The centre has been facing hardship in maintaining the building as well as meeting its day to day operational expenditures.

He also shared with me the neighbourhoods' complaints about the noises at night coming from some of the children who screamed or cried non-stop which have disturbed their otherwise peaceful living environment. This is something he wish that his neighbours could understand and give him the much needed patience as he is working hard to move the centre to a more suitable surrounding instead of the present home that is surrounded by residential houses.

According to Mr Morgun, staying awake at night is very common among these physically or mentally challenged children; There is nothing much we can do other than providing comfort and care for them, he added. In fact, we should appreciate the helpers who have sacrificed their precious sleep in order to keep up with the children all night, not to mention the loads of daily chores that await them the following day.

From an outsider's point of view, let us ask ourselves, do we actually know the magnitude of commitment and conviction involved in running a centre of this nature? can we feel the pains and sufferings of these poor children? and are we prepared to sacrifice and willing to do what the centre's helpers are doing for the sake of these children? These are just a fraction of the problems Mr Morgun are facing everyday, if you want to know more, spend half a day with him and you will walk out with your hat off. This is a superhuman job only for the strong hearted.

I personally think that generally homes that are located outside Kuala Lumpur receive much less attention from the general public, in terms of receiving visitors as well as donations. The homes' caretakers have to work twice as hard to create the public awareness in order to achieve their objectives such as fund raising campaign, charity dinner etc. To help kind people like Mr Morgun, I urge those who are keen in visiting homes, do consider venturing out of the city if circumstances allowed. Let's reach out a little further to the needy, because they simply do not have the means to come to us.

Before I conclude, please lend your generous hands to Mr Morgun by buying a table or two from him at RM1,000.00 per table for 10pax or help him to achieve the target fund size of RM120,000.00 by selling the tables to your relatives, friends or colleagues. Perhaps, you could also send your kind donations to him directly at: "PUSAT PENJAGAAN KANAK-KANAK CACAT KLANG SELANGOR" (Payee). No:4, Lorong Bunga Raya, Kampong Raja Uda, 42000 Port Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan.

For further inquiries to the Charity Dinner, please contact Mr S.Simon at 012-5172722 / 016-3710248 or Mr Morgun at 012-3915893

Meantime, do enjoy the song that is playing now which I would like to dedicate to you who is taking time to read my blog.

On behalf of Mr Morgun, God Bless you with great health and happiness!

Great blog. I really liked it. I have also created a lens in same niche. This is my first time, hope u guys like it. Here’s a brief intro: Charity Fund Raising Can Show Philanthropy Charity fundraising can show philanthropy by having the donor involved in the decision making process of where the charity funds will be spent. In modern times, more charity organizations are trying to think more outside the box in garnering interest to contribute money. Anyone can do a bake sale, a car wash, or a church rummage sale. But how about something unique, something that has never been tried before? For more detail visit here: http://www.squidoo.com/charity-and-philanthropy/
