Celebrating the joy of giving
Meals on Wheels (MOW) celebrated Hari Raya Aidil Fitri with Children from Persatuan Kebajijan Anak-Anak Yatim Al-Habbah on Sunday, 17th August. An annual tradition since MOW was established, the event was aimed at bringing joy to the Children, and to express appreciation to the many dedicated Ustaz who worked selflessly to provide shelter, education and care for the Children.

The Children's Home is literally "in the woods", away from the hustle and bustle of the KL city. As the MOW baby van curved up the dirt road leading to the Home, I had this nostalgic "balik kampung" feeling. And couldn't help but hummed to the tune of the ever popular song by the late Sudirman ...
Ho ho... Balik kampung (3X)
Nestled along the hillside, the 3-storey white building is surrounded by lush greeneries and mature trees. This is both, home and school to 30 plus children, some from broken homes, some orphans and the rest from poor families from the neighbourhood.

|Best part of the neighbourhood ... to get some peaceful and quiet moments|
|How difficult can this be!|
|Come on Andrew ... just push slightly to the right!|
|Oh well ... at least we still get to take home some|
|Time to taste the fruits of my hard work|
