NEED HELP! Pusat Jagaan Titian OKU Nur (Taman Tasik Titiwangsa)

1 MAY 2011 - Few years ago on the very same date, it was the beginning of a new chapter in my life.  I took the courage to spread my wings and fly far away from negativity and cluster of dark past. It was one of the awkward moment but I know I was happy and as the saying goes..I’d move on…literally. I’ve learn to love myself and appreciate life even more. Looking back, I was really grateful of what I had gone through coz at the end of the day. I’ve LEARNED!.well..I count my blessing and I try to live my life as interesting as possible.   
Today, I decided to collect the 2 cartoons of Nestle Bliss from Carrefour, Midvalley as we was the 1st 200 that registered under the Hotfm website.  THANK YOU HOT FM!
Nestle Bliss drink...yummy

Normally I tried to do my charity bits each time I go back hometown at Pertubuhan Pengurusan Pusat Jagaan Orang-Orang Istimewa Mentakab, Pahang. Happen to be, just the other day, I noticed a signboard of Pusat Jagaan Titian OKU Nur at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

So I thought why not we go and check it out since we agreed to give it away those drinks to charity anyway.  Upon reaching the welfare home, noticed that the gate was locked and the place was really quiet. Seems like no one there. After calling for few times, then came this young lady and she opened the gate for us. We asked for the person that managed the place while Joshua and I carried those drink and place it inside the home. B went to park the car at the side of the home.

The welfare home
Finally the caretaker, Pn Normah Binti Safar came out and welcome us with big smile. My heart sank when I saw this beautiful girl named Nana came and asked me a bottle of the drink as she keep asking where I came from, what’s my name and etc. She speaks very slowly, word by word but with good command of English, Malay and even Chinese. I asked her where she learn from and she said she love to read especially Mangga magazine. Listening to her questions while she look into my eyes was emotional but not until when I was about to leave that she hugged me tightly and asked just one question “When are you coming again?” and she cried. At that point, I tried my level best to hold back my tears..I don’t easily cry but it just hit my emotional bucket real hard. I tried to console her not to cry and I said..dont worry..I’ll come back, okay. We asked Pn Normah, what kind of help they require, the first things she said was food especially milk and rice. But they accept whatever contribution given, even if the food has expired, they will also eat them, she added. Infact she said that we are the 2nd person to visit them this year and the welfare was established since 2 years ago.  There are about 20 occupants including old folks and handicapped that being  taking care of full time. 

 So without wasting out time, we straight headed to Giant, Batu Caves and get some provisions. The place was packed maybe due to the long holiday weekend. After getting all the necessary, we went back again and Pn Normah with another kitchen helper (she asked me to call her Tok), came and help us to unload those stuff. Nana was smiling from ear to ear as I handed over the Mangga magazine.  The look on their face shows how happy they are to receive those items even though our contributions are small.

I know I can’t be asking everyone to feel like what I felt, but I would really appreciate if all of you who are reading my blog until this very sentence to come and visit personally and do your part too. It could be a simple contribution from cash, food, clothes, personal hygiene, adult diaper, magazines or even your presence to spend some quality time with them alone are greatly appreciated. They are urgently in need all of the above as not many are aware of their welfare.
If you happen to go for a walk at Taman Titiwangsa or to catch a show at Istana Budaya, I do hope you could also lend a helping hand as it is just few meters away.  The full address is as below:

I have done the little bit I could for the occupants here. Am glad you are roping in help and aids from others as well.

Di pihak saya, saya sedang berusaha mendapatkan bantuan berkala dan terkawal untuk mereka supaya mereka tidak dilonggokkan dengan benda-benda yang tidak diperlukan atau terlalu banyak sehingga membazirkan.

Great job, Devi. May God bless You!

Devi da Lil' DeviL said...

thank you Zamil's mum. i hope more people like you will be coming to contribute some thing to them as well. May God bless you. hopefully the Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat will try to help lessen their financial burden too.
