My bedroom is beginning to look like a store room now. See the above pic? Those are just some of the things I got from friends and blog readers, to be delivered to poor families. Some of the toys I received earlier are already kept at my NGO center. We usually give out the toys to the children during our annual family day, so that none of the children will go home empty handed.
Amongst the items which are still with me are adult and baby clothes. I had earlier on received 2 big plastic bags of clothes from an aunt, also to be given to the poor families, which I have yet to do anything. You see, for the adult clothes, I'd have to sort them out first, and since I know the HIV infected/affected families better, I'd have to identify which size suits whom. Well, I have yet to sort them out, which means I haven't delivered them either.
As for the baby clothes which I received just recently, well, it's easier to identify who should get this as for the moment there's only 1 infant under me - Halimah's baby who was born just over 2 weeks ago. I'd better deliver them soon before the baby is no longer a baby! I haven't been to Halimah's house though, and I couldn't find her kampong's name in my GPS. But I'm sure Halimah will need to come to Ipoh from time to time for her appointments, especially with both Halimah and the baby having appointments in Ipoh GH, so I think I will check with Halimah when next she's coming to Ipoh, meet up with her then and send her home together with all the stuff meant for her baby.
A few other blog readers have transferred some money through my bank account to be given to the poor families. Well, at least this kind doesn't turn my bedroom into a store room... :-)
And I still have the monthly groceries sponsored by a university's women's club, to be delivered to Sofie's and Lin's family. I plan to do so this coming Friday and Saturday. Apparently their club will be having their AGM next month and they wanted some photos to show during the AGM. Since I had told them earlier I cannot show them photos of the HIV infected/affected families due to confidentiality issues, they figured they'd just take photos of themselves, the minimarket owner, and myself when I next get the groceries from the minimarket. So, the plan is the "photo session" will be this Friday. Then off I will go on my own to deliver the stuff.
My plan is to deliver the stuff to Lin on Friday, since her house is nearer; and to Sofie on Saturday. It's about time I get some updates about them too, what with Lin's surgery coming up in April and Sofie's plan to move to another house.
So yep, it's time for this month's McPi McDelivery!
