Last Sunday, my family followed some Christian friends to visit a Children & Adult Welfare Home in Kepong. As compared to a shelter home we visited 2 years ago (coincidentally, also with a group of christian friends even though we're buddhist), this welfare home is much smaller. It's run by an indian couple since 1998 - the husband owns a textile factory and acts as the warden of this home, and the wife cooks and drives the kids to school everyday. So far, all funds come from the couple and the public.
Most of the boys attend Tamil school. They're paying full attention when the indian lady was sharing with them in Tamil. I could see they're infected by her zeal. Most of them are not orphans but with single mothers who could not take care of them.
I can see some very bright children there. I hope they can have good education and have faith in their dreams.
Singing time... I'm glad my son took the initiative to help the kids with the lyrics. (My boy has grown up a little)
Time for some refreshments.
Love is colour blind. It will be wonderful if one day my family can join a soup kitchen with all 3 races involved (without political color). Hand in hand, the world can be a better place...
Some adults joined in during the photo session. Many of them had conjunctivitis which we're not aware of prior to our visit.
*** A few days after our visit, my hubby & I plus my youngest daughter had conjunctivitis too. Now I realize how contagious this disease is. Even so, we've no regret to visit them and looking on the bright side, Love is as contagious too!
