We went to the Kg Tekir on saturday. It was amazing to see the conditions of the houses and the kids. Education is not a priority to them and a lot of the kids just while their day away by just playing. Jessy went in on tuesday to teach the kids this book - "The Hungry caterpillar by Eric Carle". The kids also learnt about the days of the week, types of food in there both in Bahasa and English. I was particularly saddened when I found out that the kids there do not know what is a birthday and what is a birthday cake. That brought tears to my eyes.
Thanks to another kind friend, Linda - she sponsored 150 cupcakes for us to bring in for the kids. These kids have not eaten a lot of the fruits that we have taken for granted - like pears, plums, some apples and oranges, strawberries etc. Nadhrah donated some party packs which the kids squealed and wowed in delight. Thanks so much Nadhrah. I am sure when you see the happiness that radiated from these kids eyes - you would have teared up.
We were cutting up fruits in a frenzy to serve the kids and they gobbled most of the stuff up. What a great feeling it was - just serving and doing good. It was a tiring day but it was all worth it! I am now planning when to go next!
