A friend of mine, Pui Kei, approached me.
“Ah Bing, I am organising a trip to Bukit Harapan, want to follow?”
“What place is that?”
“Handicapped people, physically or mentally. We are going as volunteers. This is a charity event.”
“Okay I’ll come. I couldn’t say no to these events.” I replied.
“I will bring a few friends of mine too” I added.
I gathered my little army in few days time. Words are spreading fast.
(Fast forward to that day)
Before I continue, let me briefly tell you the history of this organisation.
Bukit Harapan is a non-profit, voluntary, organisation for the physically and mentally handicapped registered on November 8th 1989. Founded by Anne Keyworth
This is a place where some people call HOME (not house).
Besides that, this organisation also provides the opportunity for youths from the rural area to receive professional training in the field of care and rehabilitation of the handicapped, both physical and mental.
There are also kakak who are trained to teach the Children how to eat, be toilet trained, acquire minor home skills like washing and drying utensils, keeping the home environment clean etc.
Pui Kee approached them and get a list of required items, then we gather donations from friends and family. And also bought the necessary items before the visit.
Some people donate money, some donate time and effort, or all together. We do anything we can to help out the unfortunate ones.
All of us wear white shirts, and put on a sticker “LOVE FACTORY”. The term is so sexy right!!
I think the slogan suits our motive perfectly—we produce lots of unconditional love for the kids
Kids are poking at Hui Min’s ear. “Kenapa ada lubang nihh, Bang?”
We ask the kids of pull his ear kuat kuat.. Hui Min stared at us, hehe.
The rest are photos from Ryan, one of the fastest rising celebrity photographer in Malaysia
I love this group photos ^^
We wanted to stay longer but the kids need to take a nap after lunch.
When we leave, the kids are not afraid to show their sad feelings, they grew attached to us and they wanted us to stay longer. Keep hugging us and pulling our shirts..
I am heartbroken to see the emotion on the kids’ face when we are about to leave. They were all so sad!! They need companion and our love so much
So if you have the chance to visit any places like orphanage, handicapped or any needy… please, please, please do so! They would love our companion, and I am sure they appreciate every moment they share with us.
We went for a quick lunch at Menggatal beef noodle. During our lunch, we shared our personal experience and feelings.
I’ve learned so much
If you interested in organising a trip like this, you can contact them through their contact page… they like to have visitors!
Do more good deeds, gain more karma points for yourself.
