小男孩的家人呢？圖片右上角，一個同樣骨瘦如柴的成年人一邊朝著小男孩這邊張望，一邊忙著手裡的活計。我們或許可以判斷，這個成年人肩 負著照顧小男孩的偉大任務，但因為他自己要忙著多幹點活，多掙點錢來養活全家，也許他就是這個小男孩的哥哥，也許他就是這個小男孩的爸爸，對於兒童身上的 東西，他也已經習慣了。

We made a trip to visit Rumah Nur Hikmah on the first day of Hari Raya, 30th August, 2011.
Saturday, 27 August 2011
This year's Hari Raya falls on 30th & 31st August, 2011, which is also our National Day, Hari Merdeka.
We are planning a visit to Rumah Nur Hikmah on 30th August, the first day of Raya to spread some cheers around. Rumah Nur Hikmah is an orphanage located at:
Rumah Nur Hikmah
Lot 11552, Jalan 18,
Contact Numbers: 016-669 9942, 017-383 9994 (Haji Othman Ahmad)
Spoke to the Caretaker, Haji Othman today for more information and asked him for their wishlist. Tuan Haji sounded humbly on the phone that they need daily amenities like:
1. Tooth paste
2. Soap for shower and general washing
3. Cooking oil
4. Milk powder (Snow brand - for a 8 month old baby who was born pre-matured)
5. Cash - to help them defray utility bills
The home presently houses 60 children with 36 Male and 24 Female, age between 8 months to 18 years.
We hope to raise some funds and be able to celebrate Hari Raya with the children together.

19 August is World Humanitarian Day, a global celebration of people helping people. No matter the race, age, religion or gender, globally there are thousands who take risks daily to improve the lives of the downtrodden and the weak. Regardless of who they are and where they are, please share this video and remember the efforts, sacrifices and inspirational lives of humanitarian aid workers!

We headed to the Handicapped and Disabled Children Association of Klang, near Kampung Raja Uda, Port Klang. A home that currently houses 76 less fortunate children and teenagers who suffered from down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autistic, vision, speech and hearing impaired and more...
During this Charity Drive which was planned immediately after Chinese New Year in February, we have successfully helped in providing a more comfortable living for the children in this home as we could now see them enjoying brand new wardrobes for both the boys and girls dormitories, a TV set, a DVD player and a refrigerator. With the funds raised, we also managed to replace the worn-out shoe rack doors and repaired some cabinet doors, amongst others.
We all have a common belief that the money we raised are to be utilised on items that can benefit the children directly. It was beyond words to see the beaming faces when they showed us how tidy the clothing were arranged inside the cupboards. The cheers and joy on children faces crowding around the A&W mascot and clown on this occasional birthday bash was all we wanted to see.
My husband and myself are counting our blessings to have a bunch of enthusiastic friends and family members who are always passionate in lending a helping hand to the needy. They make no qualms in all the arrangements we made and seek no rewards in their giving. This is the true spirit of charity. This is the way forward. We salute you.
Taking this chance to introduce our new friends who joined us after reading this blog is the Ong family (Mr Ong is the second from left seen here holding a box filled with their donated items while talking to his wife Wendy with two boys standing beside her.
They have had a great time spending with the children and Wendy was telling me that they plan to visit this home again coming Saturday with their eldest son who missed this session. I am proud of you and your family, Wendy. Keep up the Godly work!
Just received this picture courtesy of Wendy and she has informed me of their family visit today, 7/5/2011 which was yet another touching experience. Children at the home are getting fast attached to their company and wouldn't want to let them go. Wendy and her husband, Mr Ong have made more donation this time, and will fulfill some of their requests in the near future. You guys are great and the world need people like you to make it a better place. God Bless you all.
Have fun while doing good deeds, that's the spirit!
