Entering the 7th Year! Tuesday, 10 March 2020 marks another milestone of Hiichiikok Home For Children Care!
Still clear in my mind this day 7 years ago when Sundra Mohan and Sangeeta (brother and sister) walked into the home in the late afternoon. This pair of siblings left us some years ago at the request of their parent and what I understand Sundra Mohan is now working as a mechanic.
Looking back at our 6 years journey I must admit it is not easy and what made me walked through the barricade is the support and trust from our EXCO and our “belief, passion and commitment”.
Every child should be given the opportunity to be given the right guidance and education to reach their highest potential.
To give our best to love, care and guide these underprivileged children like our own children as every parent would want to give their best to their children.
The commitment to see these children nurtured to be responsible and caring children to their families and be a good citizen of our country. It is our hope that the children we cared for will be able to continue and spread the light of kindness to our society.
I have to admit that many times I stumbled and fell. Many times when stress reached its peak “give up” were about to ooze out from my mouth. The faces of the children especially those who are committed to make a change in their lives and have proved their commitment – I took a deep breath, swallowed the words and said “I can’t give up”.
We have children who received the Anugerah Cemerlang from the school 3 years stretch and also those who filled the Home with trophies and medals for sports and other skills. These tells me to “Keep Going ”.
Support and encouragement from friends, supporters, volunteers, sponsors and donors is another jab of adrenalin that pulled me back into positive mode.
Challenges are there for the team as well as the children. Looking at it positively challenges are opportunities for us to learn and improve.
