Delivery of Love to House of Joy

A fire gutted the two-storey House of Joy Orphanage, destroying the second floor on 30 December 2010 which left the orphanage unsafe for occupation. Some of the electrical appliances were also damaged. The underprivileged children and orphans have to relocate to a temporary premise in Taman Kinara.

On 18 January 2012, Khind donated stand fans, rice cookers and water heaters to the children. Staff members also entertained the children with origami, teaching them how to make little fishes and lanterns using red angpow packets. It was a memorable afternoon filled with laughter and happiness.

House of Joy Orphanage was established on 1 August 1992 by Rev Tang Chee Sing and his wife Lee Ching Mun. It is a social concern and a non-profit charitable home that administers shelter, care and training to orphans, children and teens who are underprivileged, abused, abandoned & neglected, poor, and delinquent. Besides children?s home, it also gives shelter and residential care to some destitute old folk.

The aim is to reach out to these needy people by providing personal developments - physically, mentally, socially and spiritually; to develop a real sense of worth and a change for the betterment amongst children, teenagers and the elderly. By loving, caring, counselling, educating, training and transforming through restoration and cultivating good values, this will help the needy children and teenagers into useful adults, ready to face life?s challenges and be good citizens and leaders of the nation.

House of Joy has future plans to build a workshop for industrial & skill learning; a farming project; a recreational & hospitality training centre and to set up more homes within Malaysia.
