The once-a-year Great Heart 2D1N Teambuilding was here again! Last weekend, 24 Great Heart staffs, members and volunteers joined the fun and interesting team building. This time round the organizers brought us on an explorace around Selangor to find clues to our campsite location. Throughout the treasure hunt, participants learnt about the importance of team work and discovering new sides of different cities while completing each task. In the campsite FRIM, everyone helped each other to pitch up the tents. It was a good learning experience about trees when participants went on a night walk after the rain. Many left with love bites from the leeches which was an unforgettable experience.

Mayakrishnan is a long term dialysis patient. He has been in dialysis treatment for 10 years. Fortunately, he is still in good health and able to travel to dialysis centre by motorcycle. He has three daughters and a son, but his married daughters seldom pay a visit or provide him with allowance. Depending on side income from his 63 years old wife and over time allowance from his son, his treatment cost is hardly covered. He is still required to pay for RM780 after subsidization from the government. To reduce the burden of his son and wife, Great Heart is providing RM360 subsidization on his dialysis treatment for 6 months. Mayakrishnan hopes that kind souls can help his family by donating funds to him through Great Heart.
