Now… the Happy Moments

You have seen the kids, you felt helpless.


We lend our hands out so we can help. Many are able to contribute food and money, and understand that these homes need constant care and help in supply.

After CNY, the home managed to gather enough food supply to fill their tummies for a month.

And rice enough for two months.

However, there are many things food and contribution can’t do. Money is needed in this case and with money, they can build utilities that can help the disabled to function better.

To allocate more staff to each kid instead of 12 kids to one staff, then you may not be able to see these kids being tied down anymore.

At the end of the day, it’s not about food or money for these kids. To them, those are the concerns of the home. Kids understand little about the basic needs of life.

Many times, it is vital that we reach out hands to touch those kids, literally. Because it is only then, we are able to see scenes like this.

Dawn called me to offer to visit with me that day


To celebrate festivals with them so they don’t feel left out.

To make those faces smile, to make us smile.

Don’t ever think that it is difficult, and don’t ever think that visiting is not important.

It might not mean anything to us, but it means a hell lot to the kids.

Love and care them everyday, because they can’t never experience what we experienced when we are growing up.

As I am creating many happy moments for them, I am in fact, creating many happy moments for myself.

  21. Sigh...so nice, kinda reminds me of the times when I was at Rumah Hope. Honestly, those were the happiest kids I've ever seen, it's hard to imagine they were once street urchins without education. Now they have a foster home to stay in and receive education. This one of the more kids I'd like to see next time. =). Nicole, if there's anything count me in too. I know I didn't contribute in this one. But I know I can do more now. =)

    Cheers.
