"Mdm Soong is a mum of one of my friends. she is a cancer patient 10 yrs ago. Ever since then, she has been in and out of hospital due to low white blood cell. Tried many methods and still not giving up. She is single mother who brought up 2 kids. 1 boy and 1 girl. Would appreciate any amount of donation. Her contact # is 012-2203788".
Just spoken to Mdm Soong a while ago and she sounded calm and optimistic over the phone. She hopes that she can be wheeled in to the operations room by next month. Her eye sights is not doing good as she can't read my handphone numbers. So she jotted down on a paper and sent me her Bank Account Details:
Soong Kam Suin

Please help if you can, regardless the amount. God Bless all of you!

Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us.
"Charity: water" is a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. They utilises 100% of the public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $20 can give one person clean water for 20 years.
Health and Sanitation.
Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.
90% of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are to children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.

This is our adopted son/brother to our family. He is cute, adorable and with so much of kindness in his face.
Everyone got overwhelmed by the fact that he was born exactly on the day and year when I gave birth to Valerie. Do you believe that God has everything arranged for us? I do!
Somewhere back in 2005, SOE June Ju was destined to join us as one family, to have another two adopted sisters and brother in this part of the world. This is the power of the Almighty.
From hundreds of poverty stricken countries in this world, World Vision handpicked this child and send him over to us. We believed that he was heaven sent. Vivian from Australia was excited about it and wanted to call him only Ju. Perhaps when Vivian goes to Thailand this holiday break, she should en route to Myanmar to pay him a visit! :p
Villi announced to the world over his FB that he's got a new adopted brother, minus a mole.
Valerie was a bit puzzled with the day they both share, :) She will now have to send a birthday card while celebrating her own!
I thank you World Vision for this meaningful gift that not only strengthened our family relationship but also teaching my children the love and compassion in helping others.
Like what the World Vision Child sponsorship guidebook says;
"Your sponsorship helps to build crucial cornerstones that allow a community to rise above poverty and children to pursue their dreams. The end result is a self-sustaining community that is free from the crutches of long-term aid and hand-outs. When you sponsor a child, not only is the child's life changed, but yours as well!"
