I know it's been quite some time since i have added any entries. So here goes...
ALONE IN A BIG CITY
I've been privileged enough to experience some truly life changing events. One of which was being able to assist a group of NGO's in their weekly exercise of feeding the homeless and underprivileged citizens of Kuala Lumpur.
Many of us have reached a point in our lives where we feel rather comfortable with our life, career and social surroundings.
Things that we often take for granted.
Ever wondered what it's like to live in poverty or even on the streets? With no one to care for us, no one to love us? Not having any social and moral support? Not being able to survive and make ends meat.
Let me tell you, it's not as easy and as care free as we think. Many a times we overlook things like this and assume that these "PEOPLE" that we see living under bridges, by the streets and sidewalks are all people whom have made the wrong decisions in life or got involved with the wrong kind of crowd.... CORRECT? (Believe you, me.... that 80% of us would have thought this about them at some point!).
For starters, you need to be present in person during these sessions to experience the true meaning of what it's actually like living in such conditions. I for one was taken a back by how humble and polite these people are.
Though i have done my part in the past, i was amazing to be able to lend a helping hand towards such a noble cause. Not just to a select few, but all of them within the area.
For those of you who always share posts of the less fortunate people in the hopes that some kind soul would come forth and help. Why don't you just join any of these NGO's and lend a hand. Honestly, i would make a world of difference and you would feel good within.
Im going to stop rambling now........
I'll leave you with some pictures to visually experience... ( none of the people as i would like their identity to remain confidential).
Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling you get when doing such deeds and paying it forward. I for one, am at a loss for words and all i dare say is, experience it for yourselves. You may not gain riches through these deeds but it will definitely gain you graces and calm, clear conscience afterwards.
With that said, lets all do our part shall we?
Feel free to hit me up if you would like to lend a helping hand and i will make the necessary arrangements with the NGO.
Till next time...
