"The mother is everything - she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness. He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly." - Kahlil Gibran
No word can describe of a mother's feeling in seeing their little ones fighting for their life. One surgery after another, protocols to follow, endless cry, doctor's appointments, tray of medicines, chemotherapy, radiotherapy.. the list goes on.
She stopped working after her son's condition started to decline. As the Hodgkin Lymphoma that her son has becoming aggressive, she needs to be by his side 24/7.
No matter how difficult the situation is, she never gives up in taking care of her children. Started with selling kuih siput to find some extra income, now she has also been active in taking orders for crochet ( p/s i will make a special note for this.. to help her expand her business ;) )
Wishing Well Programme is not just about giving them a day to remember or arranging an artist to meet them. It is purely about helping the young patients and their family to have confidence in going through during the difficult moments. It is about giving them support. Easier said.. it is all about LOVE.
That is how we came up with the idea of giving Hazim's mother a sewing machine for her to expand her source of income. She knows how to sew, but the sewing machine that she has is already faulty.
The beautiful secret of a mother-child bond is,when the mother is happy,so does the child . Vice versa.
True enough.. I personally see the glimpse of happiness in Hazim's eyes when he talked about his mother's business.
He is proud of his mother. A child's gift for the mother that he loves.
As for Puan Zaidah a.k.a ibu Hazim, she is doing what any mother would do. A Mother's Love.
My personal gratitude to all my beloved friends who have helped to raise the fund in buying the sewing machine. May Allah bless you..
