In Malaysia the first place we visited was an orphanage in Kajang in the state of Selangor. This orphanage housed a total of 54 Orphans, 29. Some of the orphan children are as young as 2 years old.

The orphanage itself needs some attention such as proper flooring (vinyl floor). Space is also an issue at the orphanage for they have little or no room to stack beds. Therefore, beds (or mattresses) have become portable where they are packed up every morning after rising and unpacked every night at bedtime. In the meantime, they do require immediate assistance with replacement of flooring and cupboard, which we will be supplying them.

A small bakery/café has been established which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with the noble intent that the orphanage remain self-sustainable. The bakery is run by volunteer single mothers and adolescent orphans. Unfortunately, however it does not generate enough funds to cover the orphanage monthly expenses. Therefore, they need a sponsor for the orphans.

We are working with them in regards to having them provide us of their monthly outgoings so we can determine how we can further assist.
