A Meaningful Afternoon

Last saturday afternoon my family and my daughter's friend's family visited a childcare centre with kids of single parents who can't afford to take care of them. We brought along food, art & craft materials and gifts. (All the items were prepared by the mother of my daughter's friend who initiated the visit and invited us a few hours before going)

The lady in this picture is the mother of my daughter's friend. I'm grateful she invited my family along.
Kids love gifts...especially the gifts of love.

Your visit must have brought sunshine to the children. How did your children feel about visiting the unfortunate ones?

Hi Joyful.Mum, those kids looked happy and polite. I must say that it is a well managed centre. In fact, this is our 3rd visit to centre for the less fortunate children. My kids had a great time too!

Last year my hubby, daughter and I got infected with conjunctivitis after a visit to another centre which has both adults and children. That centre has more residents and it is not very clean.

Given a choice, I still prefer to visit centre which needs more help and not those which already enjoy many corporate sponsorship.

Hi YuinTing, this is a very heartwarming post.
You and family are really great to drop over.
I'm sure it means a lot to the kids especially the goodies you brought.

Well done, YuinTing....I feel happy to know someone like you, your kindness and warmth.
Best regards, Lee.
