Project Smile: Christmas Celebration at Orphanage Home

Dec 2017

Christmas is about joy, love, gratitude, sharing and giving. It is the same spirit in which drives Kossan International Sdn Bhd (KISB) volunteers to organize the Christmas celebration at the Good Samaritan Home to spend some time to share and give with love. Good Samaritan Home is a Home for children who come from families where parents have abandoned them, or where a parent is unable to cope with the divorce, or where the child has lost one or both parents.

30 boys and girl whose age ranges from 1-22 years old are being cared for as the Home seeks to not only provide for their physical and material needs, but also to minister to their emotional and psychological needs especially in the light of their broken family backgrounds.

The dean of the orphanage said a little kindness from a good person can make a world of a difference for them. The children are the nation's future. We cherish and hope that our initiatives can make them feel the warmth of society, and we hope to inspire more people to care about them and for them to continue the legacy of loving others.

KISB volunteers took the opportunity to spread some Christmas cheer by singing Christmas carols together with the children. The children enjoyed the songs and joined in with tambourines, ringing a delightful spirit to the songs. Meanwhile, the KISB volunteers also took the opportunity to bond with the children to understand their hobbies and interest in sports and games. They are very passionate about life and about learning new things.

Before we ended the day, every child received a new school bag with stationeries from KISB to start the new school term. KISB also contributed financial donation to the orphanage to support their basic necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and education.

Christmas alerts us to the needs of those less fortunate than ourselves, and many organizations and individuals make good efforts to bring the Christmas joy to them. Christmas can be more meaningful and blissful if majority of the society can open their hearts and hands for others.
