Inside the bus, en route to our third and last destination for the day and while passing through cemeteries, we’re told that we needed to get off to walk a few meters because of the narrower roads cannot accomodate the big bus. The matter wasn’t an issue for those who wanted to reach out. No one complained. There were no signs of fatigue, neither exhaustion despite it has been a long day. We arrived at Penang Shan Children’s Home with smiles on our faces. 🙂
Look at that ear-to-ear-smile! His first time, I think to see a goat, up close! Momentous!
Few minute-of-walk-after, we arrived at the orphanage.
Here’s the board at Shan’s where they post a list of their daily needs. Let’s help them, please!
I salute all the Malaysian blogger-volunteers that day who did not only feed the children with Subway sandwiches & Chatime milk teas but spent precious time getting to know them. Time, indeed, is something priceless that one can generously share.
Personally, I’d like to express my gratitude to the sponsors of this worthwhile activity, Chatime Malaysia and Subway Sandwiches Penang (Suntech, iAvenue & Leith Street) that fed the children in the orphanages and all of us volunteers, Ninetology that gave iPad units to the orphanages for the children to be abreast with modern technology and the organizers and my fellow blogger-volunteers; Termia Kasih! You are all INSPIRING!
Few days after, our volunteerism landed on local and online news.
Thank you very much!
We hope to MOTIVATE more people to help, volunteer, donate & participate in any little way they can.
