For The Children

It has been almost 10 months since we first started doing monthly programmes at RACTAR. Syukur alhamdulillah, my gratitude goes to En. Dzul and wife,staff at RACTAR and of course my very dedicated friends cum volunteers who have been very supportive in every projects that we did.

I only wrote once about what we do at RACTAR. Partly, because I was building up a team of volunteers. Alhamdulillah.. after 10 months.. I know, Allah SWT has given me a priceless gift. A group of dedicated, loving, cheerful and caring volunteers. Most important of all, they have become good friends of mine.

Amazingly.. half of them are friends I know through Wishing Well Programme. Wishing Well Programme started as a small platform to make the childhood cancer patients smile, laugh and enjoy the moments of being a child.We are not an NGO... just a group of friends, joining our hands together for the children.

Therefore, now.. Wishing Well Programme has spread the wings, reaching other children with different struggle in their life. RACTAR is a home to a group of girls who comes from a different background. Some are orphans, some are poor.. and some were abused before.

What we do there.. is just like the lyrics of a song by Whitney Houston. The lyrics goes something like this...

" I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be ..."

Next programme.. Story Telling Competition, Sunday, 25th July 2010.

p/s i am soooooo looking forward to it.... :)

May Alah SWT bless you..
