With the money contributed by the teachers and staff of Vokasma plus some other kind contributors which amounted to RM1619, Puan Khairah, Puan Kamariah, Cik Azalilah, our former student Azizol, and Miss Cheah helped to buy Raya clothes, kopiah and shoes for 17 boys from the Pondok at Batu 10, Lekir who are either orphans or from very, very poor families.
The cost for the clothes, kopiah and shoes amounted to RM1320. We also bought 50 anak tudung for the senior citizens who are living at the Pondok. However, there is one boy, Dollah, who did not get to buy his shoes as his feet are too large. I will go and look for Size 12 shoes for him later tonight. The remainder of the money will be used to buy brooches for the 18 girl orphans at the Pondok.
What a wonderful and meaningful way to spend the 53rd Merdeka Day of Malaysia! On behalf of the children at the Pondok, I would like to thank all those who have contributed to the fund. Thank you. You will be blessed for your kind gesture.
