Sharing hope at House of Love Children's Home
During 2022, Aspen Malaysia selected House of Love Children’s Home as their Mandela Day beneficiary.
Employees made positive and impactful contributions to the Home by offering donations and arranging an exciting movie day for the children.
House of Love is a non-profit Children's Home founded by Dr Joseph Pang in 2012. Dr Joseph was awarded “The Father of The Orphans” by Sin Chew Daily in 2003. He plays the role of a father to monitor the children’s growth and to secure funding for the home. The Home is a place of refuge, security and love for 23 homeless, abused, orphaned and abandoned children aged from four to 16 years.
Our donations to the Home included various items such as rice, cooking oil, canned food, detergent. The children were delighted to each receive an Aspen care pack containing a personalised towel, handkerchief, water bottle and stationery.
A highlight of our participation was the movie day for the children. Many had last visited a theater prior to the onset of the COVID pandemic lock down. During lunch on the day, the children enjoyed fun activities and a clown engagement which had been arranged to celebrate a birthday.
We also supported one of the Home's fundraising initiatives which is driven by the children who make and sell popcorn.
