Last Saturday, I went to Sunway Pyramid to be part of the Sharing Session by World Vision, Malaysia.
It is an international NGO focusing to help poor people all around the world.
Actually the most attractive factor to come is the ambassador for the 6th year of the Child Sponsorship Programme.
She is my all-time favourite, sweet and living legend, Francissca Peter.
She was there to raise awareness on CHANGE A LIFE, CHANGE YOUR OWN Campaign focusing on the Child Sponsorship Programme and Gift of Hope.
For the Child Sponsorship Programme, we can sponsor a child in poor countries such as Indonesia, Lebanon, Vietnam and few other countries to provide them basic necessities such as - clean water, better nutrition, health care, education and economic development for their community.
We can choose whether the child is a girl or boy and we can get his / her annual report card for the whole sponsorship programme.
And it does not cost much.. only RM50 per month per children.
yes, for only RM50 we can change somebody else's life.
See the women on the above picture? the one sit the left side? Her name is Mrs Phua Siew Ling.
As a cleaner, how much she earn every month? not much, rite.
But she is sponsoring child too.
The lady next to her.. She sponsors 42 children.. wahhh
Hm... I remember my friend and I noticed one chineese old lady. She looks very old..60++ i guess.. with basket at her hand and a very simple wear.
She sat and listening to Kak Fran's performance. I guess she is one of Kak fran's fans.. just like me.. hehehe.
Then, when Kak fran mentioned and reminded all audience to go to the counter to contribute something, she wake up.. and yes, she put some amount in the jar there..
That moment, i was so touched...
what a kind-hearted person..
she may not have enough money to comfort herself but still she wants to help others.
Honestly, i had a great time with the living legend and with my friends who also hard core fans of Kak Fran.
can't imagine Kak Fran and her sister cum manager willing to invite us for a chat and drink.
really great, man!
Believe me, Kak Fran is so sweet and humble.. and loving too.
Hm.. she demonstrates to us that we dont need to act like a superstar.. even if we really are..
Ok ok, back to the child sponsorship program...
I told you about the GIV jar right? this is how the GIV jar to be used.. to help others.
we live not for ourselves... part of what we get today is somebody else's right.
They are the less-fortunate people.
RM50 is not enough to repair a wiring problem or plumbing problem for our properties but for them, it is a miracle.
It able to help them out of poverty or disease suffering due to inaccessibility to clean water and nutrition.
Why not use the small amount of money we get from the rental surplus to them, rite?

By the way, if you love her voice, she already released her collection of solo albums from Komputer Muzik 1984 until Setinggi Angkasa in a limited edition boxset.
It can be bought at music store nationwide.
Now, lets enjoy Francissca Peter's performance on the great evening.
She sang the official song of the campaign, titled as Tomorrow.
The song is the theme song for The International Aid Organisation, World Vision Malaysia, written by her and her sister, Bibiana Peter.
