My Story

Update on Distance covered: 34.9 KM of 100 KM [Day: 10 of 30]

63 kids - of ages between 2 and 23 - call Lighthouse their home. Julia is the youngest who will be starting school, next year. At 23, Joseph is the oldest who’s studying engineering at Taylor’s University. Hong, who’s in grade 6, is undoubtedly the most mischievous of the lot (he once hid my phone and I spent 2 hours looking for it), and Praveen, who is in secondary school, is the most responsible 16-year-old I’ve ever met in my life (he loves learning about countries and cultures).

Lighthouse Children Welfare Home is a foster home in Bangsar, KL, registered with the Registrar of Societies since 2007. The home is run by Mr and Mrs Steven, full-time foster parents to all the children.

I started volunteering at Lighthouse back in the summer, last year. In the wake of Covid-19 lockdowns, most of its expat donors had left the country and Mr. and Mrs. Steven were having trouble making the ends meet. Back then, a few corporate donors and NGOs lent a helping hand and things did get better, however, more recently due to persisting lockdowns when NGOs are no longer in operation, Lighthouse needs help once again.

MYR 50,000 (roughly USD 10,000) is what’s needed on a monthly basis to keep the foster home afloat. While I and some fellow volunteers are reaching out to corporates to seek help, we’re also undertaking personal fundraising efforts to help out as much as we can.

My target is to raise MYR 10,000. It’s not an awful lot I feel, but it should be enough for 3 weeks of groceries at the home.

To raise funds for Lighthouse and create awareness on my social media pages, I have undertaken a personal challenge to run 100 KMs in a month. I’m not a regular so it’s not going to be an easy feat for me but hopefully I will be able to accomplish the challenge, and more importantly, be able to raise funds and awareness for a cause that’s close to my heart. I will be regularly posting updates on this page to share my progress.

Thank you for your support.

Stay safe.
