I went with my friend to donate some food stuff with the boys brigade, send some food stuff to the needy families. The food bag includes: cooking oil, rice, sugar and salt. The most shocking thing is that one of the family I went to is really those you see already will drop tears on the spot.
Son mental block and slight retard.Father have stroke and paralysed waist down cannot work and slight eye sight problems and using hearing aid.Wife deaf and mute, still attempting to mutter thank you when we present the food to the family.
I was like almost broke into tears then my friend noticed and pulled me out.
He told me, this is life. What we might not see daily don’t means its not happening. Grabbing me out of the house is actually respecting them, they’re needy family but they also human. Don’t let them see you tearing if not they also might feel offended.
They need our help but don’t take it as they are some pathetic beings.
We’re lucky we have a shelter when born, food during our baby stage, education while we were growing and jobs when we stepped into society. But there’re some who don’t have all these.
That’s y I really think we hobbyist are somehow lucky. We can buy fishes buy tanks. But when there are people who can’t even placed a proper meal for their family on a daily basis.
Garment only worried about their pocket not filled enough, increasing bus fare, gst, adjusting their pay but they forgotten there are people who need a lot more help out there.
If yearly the budget review for the garment draw out a portion for those in need maybe won’t have some much needy family around.
Bro, include me in your next trip. I would like to extend my service to them too.
Maybe can ask my church friends to extend their charity too.
