Handicapped and Disabled Children Association of Klang

Last Sunday morning, 1st of May,2011, which is Labour Day Public Holiday, we all had a date. To come together to do something meaningful, to spread some love, have some fun and at the same time, bringing about a touch of compassion to the hearts of our children. It was a Charity Drive.

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.

24 cars gathered at Sg.Rasau Toll, many had even arrived before 10am!

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!
