Profile


Short Profile of the Home (by Aaron Tham)

Imagine your father comes home drunk every night. He takes it out on your mother. He is not interested in you or the family. All he looks forward to is his next fix. As a 3 year old, you are oblivious to what is going on, but it has been a whole day since you last had something to eat or drink. You are hungry and thirsty. You look around for your mother but she is nowhere to be found. What you don’t know is that after the last beating, your mother decided to walk out. She cannot take your father’s beatings any longer and she fears for her life.

Founded in January 1999 by Albert Ong and YM, a former pastor and his wife, Good Samaritan Home (GSH) cares for children such as these—who come from families where parents have abandoned them, or where a parent is unable to cope with divorce, or where the child has lost one or both parents. GSH today is home to 28 children, whose age range from 3—17 years old. The home seeks not only to provide for their physical and material needs, but also to minister to their emotional and psychological needs especially in the light of their broken family backgrounds.

Hey! Fantastic job Alan..:)
Continue with the wonderful adventures of Captain Starbucks:p and Pastor Albert. You already have warm hugs from a cold and shivering (i guess) Gosia (actually she needs the hugs more, what with the temperature in Poland).

ALL YOU GUYS ARE DOING A GREAT JOB BLESSING THE CHILDREN...KEEP IT UP!!

God Bless....

Hello,
I've known Albert for along time and am happy to inform all of you that I am now attached to SALAM MALAYSIA, a local NGO that dose a lot of community projects and co-ordinates sponsorships. Corporate involvement in volunteerism has sparked of a rush among the corporate giants to jump on the volunteer and communal service bandwagon. So, do keep us imformed of all GSH activities and projects. Also, do give recommendation of other similar non-government charitable institutions that really need support. My way of serving in mission work.
