It’s difficult to put yourself in the shoes of someone who’s endured difficulties, disabilities and abuse in their life. This is because, even with imagination, it’s difficult to recreate the actual mental and physical impact such events and circumstances develop.
But that doesn’t mean that we can’t help those who have experienced or are still experiencing such situations and traumas.
Children saved from abusive parents or single parents who can no longer support them
The ShanDai Welfare Home Centre is a safe space for disabled and orphaned children to heal from their past experiences and build a family of their own.
Thanks to the orphanage, the children now consider each other family and have a great support system to help them learn and prosper as they grow. They even have meals and activities provided for them!
The centre, which previously had a regular flow of visitors and contributors, is now struggling to obtain donations due to the public’s own financial troubles through the pandemic.
“The number of people affected by the pandemic started to increase and the government issued a Movement Control Order (MCO) to control the spread of the virus. Such a move affected the centre completely. The centre, which had been slowly improving, was knocked to the bottom overnight,” they shared with WORLD OF BUZZ.
And sadly, the centre is now running on the last remains of their reserve funding.
“The Director of the centre has been trying to give the children a place to call ‘home’. The Director also used his own business funds to pay for the centre’s expenses, but his business has slowly declined due to the pandemic,”
“As a last resort, the director also drew on the centre’s reserves to pay for the centre’s expenses. As a result, the centre has financial problems, but there is no other choice,” they added.
How to help?
Here are the centre’s monthly expenses:
Rental – RM3,000 a month
Electricity & water – RM1,000 a month
Food expenses for seven orphans and two caregivers – RM2,000 a month
Miscellaneous expenses – RM500 a month
Three caregiver’s salaries – RM5,000 a month
Do note that there is absolutely no need to break the bank because we understand that many want to help but are unable to give much financially due to their own circumstances. Hence, even the smallest contributions are welcomed as a little help goes a long way in making a huge difference in these kids’ lives.
You can contribute to the ShanDai Welfare Home Centre through online banking:
Account number: 8881040000310 (Ambank)
Account name: Pertubuhan pusat penjagaan kanak kanak cacat shan dai selangor
The orphanage is registered and recognised by the government
Once completing a transaction, you can send over a receipt to their social worker, Marcus, so that they can record every donation and issue an official receipt. You can contact Marcus at +6011-69630458.
The ShanDai Welfare Home Centre is also happy to receive inquiries in regards to the children’s well-being and on how the donations are being spent.
These kids (and many others) have been let down by the people in their lives, and that’s just not right. The orphanage is dedicated to nurture and give love to unfortunate children, and with the funding, they’ll be able to continue helping the kids that call their centre ‘home’ and expand to take in more kids who need them.
So let’s help the ShanDai Welfare Home Centre give exactly that to the children that they’ve saved and the ones that they will.
We’re ready to do our part in helping these children, and we hope you will too.
