Last Saturday, hubb’s company had organised a ‘gift day out’ at a local orphanage in Cheras. It was perfect as I was scratching my head trying to figure out where to donate my bags of unused baby/toddler items to. Now that baby Ju is starting to understand and learn about things that we do everyday, we want to teach the little one the true meaning of Christmas and the joy of gift giving to those who are less fortunate.
The Gamudians did a pretty good job. Besides handing out goodie bags (with Gamuda’s stationary), they personalized every presents’ wrapping and attended it to every child’s name on the present. They also ordered hundreds ringgit worth of goods from Tesco, provide an awesome fiesta of Domino’s pizza for the kids and even go through the trouble of getting gardening supplies to teach them how to plant vegetables at their little garden. The Christian based home which was established 25 years ago, had been providing shelter, food, lodging and education for 35 kids who comes from various background. They are so polite and friendly that it’s such joy to spend time with. I’m so glad that baby Ju blends in well, and he was adored by most of the kids there. I hope we can continue to do this every year with Ju-Hann.
