SMILE OF RAMADHAN AT RUMAH KASIH NURUL HASANAH

The residents of Rumah Kasih Nurul Hasanah have a reason to smile this holy month of Ramadan,after receiving donations of groceries and toiletries that will be enough to sustain the home for the next three months. This was made possible due to the generosity of PETRONITA, whose Welfare Committee organized the contribution as part of their community initiative, entitled “PETRONITA Prihatin, Ukhuwah Terjalin”.

From as early as 9.00am, volunteers from PETRONITA converged on the home to unload the groceries and toiletry items, greeted by excited residents comprising children, single mothers and senior citizens. The volunteers then proceeded to spring clean the home, from sweeping and mopping the floors of the surau, main hall and kitchen; to cleaning the fans, carpets, shelves and many more.

The volunteers also helped to arrange items that had been donated by members of the public into the cabinets.

In addition to that, PETRONITA’s Welfare Committee had also organized a haircut session for the residents of the home, courtesy of Blade Barber Shop from Bukit Jalil. To cater to the many residents, a PETRONITA volunteer even helped to give the female residents at the home a haircut!

The programme also strengthened the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood among the children through fun activities that allowed them to interact with one another in a friendly atmosphere.

“Duit-raya” packets were also distributed to the residents of the home by Puan Azmah Azman, Head of PETRONITA Welfare, to give them something more to smile about this festive season.

Rumah Kasih Nurul Hasanah is non-government organisation located at No. 1, Jalan Pimping Kanan, Ukay Heights, 68000 Ampang, Selangor. It was established in April 2012 with the aim to provide shelter and protection to the less fortunate, such as abandoned children, orphans, asnaf, muallaf, single-mothers, senior citizens and abused children/adults.  It is also a centre for Al-Qur’an and Fardu Ain classes for the children around the area. 

The day-to-day running of the centre is funded by public donations and proceeds from their own home business such as sales of cookies and kerepek.

It is hoped that the event has benefitted the residents of the home as well as the volunteers. For the residents, it is for them realise that they are not alone, that there are people who still care for them and for their well-being. And for the volunteers, let this be a reminder to us that we should not take advantage of all that's been given to us, and that we should count our blessings and empathize with those who do not have the same opportunities as us.  As the saying goes, "it is better to give, than to receive".
