FIVE volunteers from Great Heart Charity Association came together to help makeover the house of Gan Kim Noi in Jenjarom, Selangor recently.
Gan had submitted an application under Great Heart’s 100 wishes project for help to replace the damaged furniture in her house.
She lives there with her disabled husband and children.
First, the volunteers helped Gan to clean her house.
They then accompanied Gan and her son to choose new furniture.
“It was heartwarming to watch the joy and contentment on the mother and son’s faces after having their home cleaned and the damaged furniture replaced with new items,” said team leader Fion Lim after successfully fulfilling the wish of Gan’s family.
“The satisfaction obtained when we are able to help others is immeasurable.
“Special thanks go to Soo Wah Ming, who funded the purchase of new furniture for Gan,” she said.
Great Heart’s 100 wishes community project is a collaboration with a local daily.
The project seeks to fulfil the wishes of 100 participants from orphanages, old folk’s homes, centres for the disabled as well as poor and needy families by seeking assistance and sponsorship from the public.
