My name is Myra. To celebrate giving this week, I am fundraising for something I love – Children. The Lighthouse Children Welfare Home is a local orphanage close to where I live. They currently look after around 70 children, aged 6 to 21. They provide a loving and caring environment for these kids, and desperately need funds to sustain the home. Please give generously!
The Lighthouse Children Welfare Home is located in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur and currently houses 70 children ranging from the ages of 6 to 21. The children largely come from problematic backgrounds involving alcoholic or drug addict parents, poverty stricken or single parents who are unable to care for their children, and in some extreme cases, from abusive environments. The Home prides itself on having adopted a family, rather than an institutional concept and a significant effort is put into bringing together siblings who have been separated in the past into this home as a family. All the children of school-going age attend government schools. The Home is run entirely on donations and we would be grateful for your kind contributions. It costs the home RM12,000 a year to house, clothe, feed and educate 1 child in a safe and secure environment. They need all the help and support they can get.
