First of all, Happy New Year my dear reader. So on the first day of the New Year, I follow the welfare worker to a very remote village, and is situated at Singai Village, Bau, Kuching.
This family has 10 children, the daddy pass away years ago because of stroke. So now the mum become a widow, and she needs to look after her 10 children. The average income for her is below a thousand per month. I do a simple calculation, lets say she is lucky enough everyday there are people buy all her vegetables (oh ya, she plants some vegetables in the garden and sell it), and able to earn 1000 each month, divided by 11 person in the house (some studying, some still need to drink milk) so each person will get RM91.....
RM1000 / 11 person = RM91 /per person
RM91 / 30 days = RM3 /per day
That means that each person can only use 3 bucks a day.....
The house, they have 1 living room, 1 kitchen, and 1 bed room and that's it. The welfare workers will help this family to apply for government aids, and hope that the gov welfare fund are able to assist them in someway. And today for our visitation, we bring some rice, cookies, cup cake, lollipop, cooking oil, instant noodles, school bags, stationary, and some financial aids to her.
Is actually quite fun to see little kids running around you, seeing them eating the cup cake, and fight with each other for the cookies. Hope they can grow up in a healthy condition... may god bless them all.
I think need to install some double desk bed for them to save up some space....
