Christmas 2018 Party
Last Christmas we brought cheer to the children in Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary, home to 55 underprivileged children. It was our first time being there and we were immediately welcomed with such warmth from the children. The party was filled with games, magic show, Christmas presents and also buffet food for the children. Our people bought more than one Christmas presents for each and every child so imagined how thrilled they were when they received their presents.
As school was starting soon, the children also received 2 sets of new school uniforms each from the firm. The firm had also donated electrical items for the home such as a deep freezer, two large commercial rice cookers and groceries and perishable food items.
After the cheque donation presentations, we were surprised by a special performance by the children, thanking us for our gifts. We were pleasantly surprised by their uplifting dance and Christmas caroling. It was indeed a fulfilling day for us and it is moments like these which makes our hearts fill with joy and gratefulness. We wish all the best for the children and hope they'll have a great year ahead!
