Love & Care for the Needy - APU Students Spent the Day with Children from Orphanages & Children Care Homes

Language is not a barrier to do good deeds.

Recently, 30 students from APU joint hands with our staff members – Salasiah binti Sulaiman, Vinothini Kasinathan, Atiyah Hadi & Rizawati binti Rohizan to show their love and care towards children from the House of Joy, Limpahan Kasih Charity Home and Baitul Hidayah Welfare Home, who came to visit APU for a fun-filled event – the APU QR Community Game. The children, whose ages were from 6 years old to 14 years old, were mostly orphans.

At the beginning of the event, all APU students were assigned as “foster brothers and sisters” of the children, in which they were required to complete several challenges by exploring the APU Campus @ TPM, and scanning the QR codes to solve the puzzles. Despite the language barriers, age gap and cultural differences, our students managed to give the children a good time as they guided their “little brothers and litter sisters” throughout the game. In one of the groups, our Bhutan student managed to establish a lovely relationship with his 8-year-old brother, who does not understand English. Upon winning the 4th Place, he donated his RM40 book voucher to his “little brother”. All our students played together with the children, shared some hugs and lovely acts that warmed our hearts that day. All children walked away with goodie bags donated by our lecturers, as well as the brightest smiles.

Kudos to the team who organised this event, with the help from Ms. Aida Zamnah, Ms. Geetha Rubasundram and Prof. Dr. Ir. Vinesh Thiruchelvam for making this event a successful one. We look forward to contribute more towards the society, thus we look forward to seeing more events like this being organised in the future.
