As mentioned in my earlier posts, my family and I will be attending a small party made specially for the Handicapped & Mentally Retarded Children Centre Kuantan. Rachel was unable to attend as she had to work......she was grumbling all morning. We reached our destination at 3.15pm sharp. Here are some of the photos taken during our visit :-
Waiting for the party to start...my bro in law in green and sis in white
We got the children involved so that they will see how blessed they are to be normal. They were also involved in the dancing introduction......both my nieces in pink.
Sis helping out with the dance steps
Although handicapped, she sang for us clips of Burung Kakaktua, ABCD, Rasa Sayang....and many more as the party progresses....
Me and Ah Boy.....Aunt Mary warned us of this one...he likes to touch pretty ladies.... :)
My bro in law dancing along
.....and he never stopped... :)
Some of us were guiding them in the dance
This boy in pink was so happy that he jumped and waved at us during the entire party...
Then it was high tea time....my mum helping out with the feeding.
This welcome mural was drawn and coloured by them
These are the children and adults staying in the shelter.....wonder why they call them inmates
Donations can be made by form of monetary or items that the children will be using daily. For eg, napkins, rice, flour, vegetables, toothbrushes, cooking oil...etc.
I noticed this on the wall. It states....."When there is love, nothing is too much trouble and there is always time". How so very true.
We adjourned at about 5.30pm. Having attended this party, made me thank God again and again for His countless blessings. We never know how blessed we are until we come face to face with these. Have you thanked God lately?
