Sau Seng Lum World Children Care Foundation has formed the “Share Share Love Dana Group” which consists of a group of dedicated volunteers who travel around in Klang Valley to visit and pay attention on provision of care for the underprivileged children. Since year 2014, the volunteers have been working tirelessly covering the areas of Cheras, Balakong, Kepong, Sentul, Serdang, Klang, Rawang and Serendah to deliver materials, resources and care to children of poor families through home visits, as well as sending warmth to the unfortunate children.
From year 2014 to 2016, Share Share Love dana group has organized more than 20 charitable activities. These activities included alms-giving to families, gathering at orphanages, visitation to Malaysia aboriginal villages and remote school areas in Laos and delivery of relief items to local children.
Sau Seng Lum World Children Care Foundation provides daily necessities and grants to the underprivileged children, so that their living and education expenses are taken care of. Through every home visit, our volunteers are able to understand the living conditions of the poor children and render necessary help and care. They light up a lamp of hope for the children. At the end of each visit, the volunteers receive drawings from the children as an expression of their gratitude. These drawings have become the biggest comfort that warm the hearts of the volunteers.
Sending Warmth Of Love To The Aboriginal Community
On 17th May 2014, 15 members of Share Share Love dana group broke the barriers of race and religion and went to Kampung Raja in Cameron Highlands to care for the poor aboriginal children. The volunteers drove and followed the lorry that was filled with relief items. After driving for three hours on the highway, they spent another hour manoeuvring on the winding roads. The roads became more rugged and it was not possible to move forward with normal vehicles. Therefore, they shifted the relief items to the four-wheel drive vehicles and continued their journey before safely arriving at the destination.
During this trip, volunteers prepared a series of activities for children to participate in, including fun interactive games, health education, group activities and prize giving activities. This charitable relief trip was full of joy and warmth. The children were informed earlier of the arrival of the volunteer team. They were excited and flocked to the assembly area with bare feet.
From the joyful and grateful looks on the children’s faces, the volunteers forgot about the bumpy journey. Through this trip, everyone was able to broaden their vision and they said that they would love to continue giving warmth to the children.
Journey Of Love Without Borders
In the third year of its establishment, the volunteer team of Sau Seng Lum World Children Care Foundation went abroad for the first international dana activities from 20th to 24th October 2015. The team visited a primary school which was located at the remote area in Paxse, Champasak at South of Laos. This was also the first time that the volunteers visited a poor country and bonded with the children who were living in conditions deprived of material and education, and experienced the children’s life.
The volunteer team brought 300 Share Share Love t-shirts to the children. The funds raised were used to buy school bags, shoes, winter clothings, school supplies, daily necessities and uniforms for the teachers. 3 primary schools and 400 children benefited from this visit. In addition, biscuits and candies were distributed along the way to students of 3 other primary schools. This trip has formed good affinities with 6 primary schools.
Under the leadership of Sau Seng Lum’s abbess, 14 volunteers from Sau Seng Lum World Children Care Foundation went to Laos to conduct dana activities for 5 days 4 nights at their own expense. They did everything on their own from fundraising, packing, to distributing items in order to practice the good deeds for charity.
This international charity relief activity helped to broaden the vision of volunteers. It also allowed them to have the opportunity to experience the life of the children and listen to their voices and continue to reflect on their own life habits. The volunteers realized that cherishing and being appreciative create blessings.
