It was a grateful moment to have the opportunity to support Great Heart Charity Organisation in Malaysia. From the experience, I have learned a lot about their local culture and seen how important it is to assist other people who are in unfortunate conditions.
While at Great Heart, I visited several kindergartens to show the children the importance of teeth brushing as well as providing them with donated food. I got in touch with underprivileged families to help them improving their lives.
Besides that, I have organised a fun trip bringing a group of underprivileged children to visit an animal farm and also plantations. I also helped to collect donations for Great Heart during dinner at a local Chinese temple in Klang.
From these volunteering programs, I met a lot of nice people whom I have taken into my heart. It was a wonderful experience in Great Heart and I wish I could have stayed longer. I am very thankful for this amazing and unforgettable time there!
