Children's wishes granted


A noble wish: Westin Hotel chef Ahmad Ridza Mohd Suffian (right) teaching Ramani how to bake two different flavours of cakes and cookies. Ramani’s wish was to learn baking because she hopes to make desserts for her friends at the orphanage.

SEVEN children from the Padmasambhava Children Loving Association found their wishes coming true, thanks to Great Heart Charity Association (GHCA).

They had wished to learn various skills, namely baking, singing, dancing, computer, playing football, as well as the Japanese language and how to do makeup.

To fulfil these wishes, the association organised a day of workshops at Great Heart Community Centre for them and their friends from the orphanage.

The wish-granting event was part of the GHCA Fulfilling Hundred Wishes project, where wishes from the underprivileged were collected and fulfilled.

Prior to the event, GHCA had recruited volunteers, including experts in the relevant fields, to conduct the workshops in order to provide appropriate and valuable lessons to the children.

The young students spent four hours in the workshop of their choice, under the guidance of volunteer coaches, and they were required to give a presentation based on what they had learned.

Association secretary Ric See said it took a month to plan the event because it involved volunteer professionals from various industries.

“I hope these workshops were able to help fulfil the children’s wishes and enable them to gain knowledge along the way,” said See.

He also thanked event sponsor Franky Lee for footing the cost of the activities.
