Children Protection Society

CPS is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation dedicated to the needs of neglected and abandoned children. CPS provide a safe & supportive environment to children who are at risk. We then work with parents and other family members , through home visits, towards re-uniting the child with their family when possible.

The Shelter Home is the main priority of CPD. They care for younger boys and girls aged 4-12 as well as teenage girls at our home. Unlike any other children's home, most of the children are either abused or abandoned by their family members, the main purpose is to take care of them temporarily and work toward the reunion the children and their respective family members.

I didn't know the existent of this society until Jon requested to have fund raising for these children. That explains why we had fund donation every Christmas. Last year, we'd raised RM1200 cash and sponsored a lil boy's one year expenses. So lil right? and they manage to feed a boy with only RM1200 a year, imagine if you have only RM1200 a month, can you survive? I know i can't, i'm so spoilt!

So, back to the story. This year, we had another fund raising during Christmas, and we managed to raise another RM1200 for a lil girl. Instead of just donating cash, we decided to pay a visit to the shelter.

We brought not only gifts and snacks, but also 2 new bicycles and lots of angpows (red packet).
