Time to Give Back: Penang Shan Children's Home Association

Penang Shan Children's Home (PSCH) Association was the third home we visited. It's quite hard to locate without guide. Around 5-10 minutes walk just behind the cemetery.

Well, PSCH began as a dream and initiative of Dr. S Balakrishnan in the year 2005. This is a non-religious and a non-profit, non-governmental organisation catering to the needs of orphans, neglected children, dysfunctional families and single parents. The home was built and officially launched on 14th December 2008 by Madam Chan Siew Har.

PSCH mission is to maximize the attractive opportunities that are stored in the children; to make something happen; to change the ways that things are and to create something that no one else has ever created before for the children, to explore for opportunities; to provide guidance and course correction; maintaining focus on being consistent and persistent.

The objective are both short and on a long term. The short term objective is to provide all the children with a safe and supportive environment while the long term development includes the options that are available for the child's future supporting them to complete the tertiary education preferably to University level.

Distributing food and beverages to them as usual :)

How to help them?

1. Adopt-A-Child Program

The average monthly expenditure per child amounts to RM400. This includes lodging, education, meals, transportation and pocket money.
Interested members of the public can contact the home.

2. Donation

The home solely depends on donation to meet the relatively high running cost. They would be very grateful members of the public or private companies can step forward to contribute a one-off or monthly fixed donation.
Interested entity can contact the home.

Was sort of a different(as in not wasted) yet fruitful Sunday cuz we have met a bunch of friendly and nice people and also a team of professional photographers! Besides, doing charity :D

P/s: They loved my fish-eye lens. And seriously, I don't mind to barter with theirs. lol
P/p/s: Didn't bring my dslr that day, which explains the post-processed photos. :p
