A Happy Day For Us and Them

Saturday, 13 June 2009 was a happy day for my family, friends and the kids at Shan Home. Me and hubby decided to organise a BBQ party for them. Eventhougth it was a very simple and small one but all of us have a great evening. I had invited only a few friends including Lilian. Sometimes, not that I don't want to invite more people but I am not sure if they would like to go or not.
I found out about this home 2 months ago from a friend of mine. I drop by there about once a week. It's happy to be there. Shan Home is located at Mount Eskine. From the road side, you will see the signboard - Bodhi Heart Sanctuary. Follow that route. It will lead you to Shan Home. This home is situated at the same property with Bodhi Heart.

Luckily my cousin Miki (the thinner one) and his friend (Surya) manage to come over to give help. Thanks to both of you

Uncle Rosan - one of the caretaker

Some of the food

Mine and Sue Ann kids. They are enjoying too

You must be wondering where are the other kids picutes. Nope, I am not putting it up here coz they also want some privacy. You can view a short video from Lilian blog.
Kids that live in this home have many hidden story behind. Living far away from parents it's a very painful experience. No one will understand them. Sometimes due to this, kids might give you funny attitute not because they are naughty but they are trying to take our attention. They also want our love too. So, sometimes I drop by to pass them some food and catch up with the kids. There are 18 of kids altogether now.
My friend Sue Ann wanted to organise another BBQ party for them again in the coming school holiday. Yipeeeee...............................................
If any of you want to donate anything to Shan Home, you can also pass it to me too as I will drop by their place at least once a week there. Afterall, Shan Home is very near to my shop.
Finally, Lilian I am happy for you too because your prayer had been answered by God and Mages is there safely with her sister. If you have any other charity project, do keep me inform. I love to help too in whichever way I could.

This is a good ministry for you. Keep it up. I am also involved in such stuff but we do it in a more organized and formal manner. As a person my resources are limited so I join other NGOs for this purpose
