My first kid...

My first kid is from Yunnan, China. He is a 9 years old boy with single parent, his mom is a farmer, he has a sister. For a 9 yo boy, he hasn't attended school yet, which is a bit sad. I just hope that with the RM50 i sponsor every month through World Vision, he will have a chance to get away from his daily chores at the farm, and finally have a chance to go to school and learn. Today when i received this envelope from World Vision, after seeing the photo with description of this little boy with no smile but a little anger display on his face, i have this feeling that cannot be explained... part relief, part happy, part sad... but it helps me to forgot the little little problems i faced at uni this morning, because somehow my trouble can be overcome and not really that important. no wonder they say by helping others, you help yourself too. going to write him a letter to communicate, and maybe send him postcard, color pencils and ruler. i start to feel like a dad. :P

除了透過世界宣明會領養孩子之外,我國也有一個組織也是可以領養孩子的,尤其是在那些部落/鄉村里的小孩子,可是我忘了相關組織的名稱,找給你如果你有興趣...

除了領養小孩子,也可以做義工啊,
這世上除了小孩子無力照顧自己和這TMD的社會對抗以外,也包括被TMD大人遺棄的老人家...
別說遠的,就在KL,就已經有很多間不是老人院,而是叫收容所的地方。他們有些是沒孩子、有些被孩子遺棄、有些是病在旦危,隨時等“走的”,就連醫院也不收留的...每個星期就靠義工前往打掃他們的住所,幫他們洗那已經看到肉爛、血已流干見骨的傷口...
他們就只能靠善心人士一點一點的幫助與救濟,而自己,甚麼也做不了...

:p
不好意思,一次過發了好多的勞到...
如果你有興趣的話,我再告訴你詳情。
加油囉,
剛為人父的MR Beh~^^

Dear Vincy,
you have so much anger in you, you have to learn to let go sometimes, there's only so much we can do. I always believe it needs to start with ownself, we have to start to be a better person, before we can help others. and frankly speaking, i'm not sure i'm the kinda person who can help person directly. so i started by giving month sponsor to 1 kid, because that's the thing that i'm confident that i'm able to do it. about being volunteer in orphanage or old folks home, i don't think i'm readied yet. maybe in future. i have to do it step by step.
and to you, look at the world more positively, you will realize the world is then a better place to live in.
gambatte.

Canny: don't hurry, make sure you are readied before committing yourself to anything. this is not like a game you can play and quit anytime. but i'm glad you have the heart for it. :)

dear sir,
也许是一些字眼让你误解了我的说法^^
我乐观得很,对于这个社会。。。
至于激愤,是必然的,但不是绝对的。;)

Canny: Good for you, i always think that 8TV is the place for you. good luck and jia you ok!

Vincy: "是必然的,但不是绝对的" -- 有语病哦!若非语病,也是相当具误导性的.简单点好!哈哈... paiseh, my chinese no good :P

恭喜啊!为人父了要成熟点咯

在我的个人诠释中。。。
“必然”得情绪是平淡的,
“绝对”得情绪是属于强硬性的。。。
哈哈!

Teddy Beh said...

++: hehehe, i always mature what!!! =.=" and when are you coming back to Malaysia!? :)

vincy: @_@ 傻眼...

可以感受到你那“初为人父”的感动……
每个月RM50,可以帮助到一个小孩拥有小孩子应该拥有的生活,绝对超值!
每次从电视上看到那些可怜的小孩,都觉得自己很幸福很幸福哦!
希望每个有阳光的角落,可以充满希望!

p/s:我的英文很烂,只能用英文留言咯!呵呵……

我在中國也有個"小女兒"哦...領養也一年多了..其實每個月只需要付出區區的五十令吉,就能讓一個孩子能上學兼三餐溫飽...何樂而不為呢?!?
今年新年我還收到一張我女兒親手給我畫的圖片當賀卡..很感動哦~~
讓我們一起努力,盡我們的所能...造就更美好的社會!!呵呵~~
