29th of November 2014 marked the last charity event for BeCause. Our committee capped the year by organizing a trip for 36 orphans and abandoned children to watch a stage performance ‘Lumi Air’ at Sunway Lagoon & Resort. The children were all from New Hope Rumah Safiyyah. To ensure it was a fun filled outing for them, goodie bags and meals were also provided for them.
Earlier in the week, BeCause members led by committee member David Loh visited Rumah Safiyyah at Klang to deliver the gifts of stationary sets, snacks, note pads and pens. The centre’s caretakers who will be taking charge of the orphans on the day of the outing also received gifts. The children and caretakers expressed their excitement and were looking forward to the event because they had never been treated to live shows or musicals before.
During the visit, members took the opportunity to interact with the kids. Puan Mia, the founder of Rumah Safiyyah, secretary Cik Siti Khawia and social services executive Cik Nurazah were also on hand to give us a briefing on the home’s activities and operations.
On the day of the Lumi Air show, to ensure safety and ease of coordinating the group, BeCause chartered a bus to transport the children and caretakers to and from Sunway Lagoon rather than getting friends to fetch them in their cars.
The children from the home were well behaved and everything went as planned. At 7pm sharp with the help of our Vice President, Mr. Kevin Tan, the kids were taken to the Sunway Lagoon Amphitheater in an orderly fashion.
During the show’s intermission, hotdogs and drinks were served to the kids by the most helpful staff of Sunway Lagoon.
When the show ended at 10.00pm, the children and supervisors all left with filled stomachs and happy faces. What made the day for BeCause members was when some kids asked when will we take them to shows like this again!
The outing went without a glitch and enjoyed by all. Our sincere thanks to the Sunway Group for their kind generosity to support our cause .
What a meaningful event to cap the year before we usher in the new year.
Because will endeavour to fill 2015 with even more charitable events in our joyful efforts to make a difference in the lives of needy folks!
