So, the searching of this "Dewan Serbaguna MPSJ" took me more than half an hour rounding Seksyen 1, Puchong with the GPS of no help either.
Finally called up House Of Joy and the person answered the phone told me to head over to Jalan TK1/1, Taman Kinrara, Batu 7, Jalan Puchong, where their administration office is located, you will see the Dewan located nearby...
Receiving me upfront at the entrance was Ah Hong, who is one of the teenagers made homeless by the fire incident last week. Two reception tables were set up at both sides of the entrance, on the left was manned by Lesley Mah and her friends, the person responsible to attend to activities and visitations. To the right was a bigger table displaying all the Chinese New Year cookies and some other items on sale, to help generate funds in this trying times, I presumed.
Overall the boys were well taken care of in terms of food, clothing and basic necessities. There are now close to 40 of them aged between 3 to 18 years old housed in the Dewan while waiting for a more permanent solution to the lodging arrangement.
As the school term had just started two days ago, I was requested to provide some packet milk for them to bring to school. Some extension wires also come in handy for fans and other electrical appliances as the hall is fairly large. Garbage bags were also needed to maintain hygiene in the place. I have so far fulfilled their needs and made a small contribution with the hope that they will overcome this difficulty in no time.
Children were seen playing badminton and some started doing their homework right after having the packed lunch courtesy of some kind Samaritans.
Ah Hong reminded me to speak with them prior to bring cooked food to the children to avoid over supply.
