This was due to the leaky roofing. It was long overdue for repair if not replacement. The home was after all 30-years old and the original building was… Continue reading Renovations at BODHi Homecare

The big day finally arrived. We were overwhelmed by the participation of nearly 2000 durian enthusiasts pouring in during the 3 eating sessions. The venue was packed to the brim and extra tables and chairs had to be added.
For the past two months, BeCause Committee had been busy planning our annual fund raising event . We eventually decided to do a Durian Charity for 2018 on Sunday, 15th July 2018.

Sometime last year in November 2016, our Society was offered an opportunity to do another fund raising project for Charity. Sunway Megalanes Bowling and Galactic Laser kindly offered to provide us their facilities for 1/2 day’s free gaming sessions on 12th June 2017, a public holiday.

Bodhi Homecare is housed in a temple in the predominantly low cost housing area in a part of Cheras. The temple was established by a Chinese monk. In 1999, shortly after obtaining registration as a Society, the monk passed away. A lay committee with Jim and Cheng Yuit as caretakers took over to look after the place. Due to its pleasant surroundings and the presence of a large statue of Quan Yin (Buddha of Compassion), the locals would come to the temple to seek blessings. Some despondents who gave up on their sick/problematic children would leave them at the temple gates.
