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!
