If you can find time on Saturday 29 July, try to make it to a worth charity project. A FOOD & FUN CARNIVAL is being organised in aid of Rumah Shalom Building Project.
DATE: Saturday 29 July 2006
TIME: 9 am - 2 pm
VENUE: Dewan Serbaguna MPSJ, Bandar Puchong Jaya
Rumah Shalom is a home for underprivileged children who come from broken families, many of them emotionally and physically abused. The home was established in 1997 with two children then.
Until today, their aim is for all children to be given the opportunity of a basic education regardless of their background, so that they can grow up to be responsible citizens. The home endeavour to provide parental care and education, teaching them self-worth to lead a productive life.
Today, Rumah Shalom needs to buy their own property because in the last 9 years of existence, they have moved from place to place due to tenancy problems as owners had opted to sell off their properties to take profit.
Some 180 needy children have passed through Rumah Shalom and some are doing well in life. Currently they have 16 boys and 9 girls under their care. And they believe it is time they buy a permanent home for these destitute children so as to provide them a more tangible program for their future.
Their current premises at No. 1 Jalan Teong 5, Bandar Puchong Jaya 47100 Puchong is up for sale for RM400,000. The owner is charitable enough and is willing to sell it below the market value. The building comes with four large rooms and three bathrooms. The build up area is 20 feet x 75 feet with an additional land area of about 3000 square feet.
This property is ideal for Rumah Shalom due to the following factors:
* Spacious corner lot with 4 large rooms
* Ample land in case for future extension
* Beautiful playground in front
* School is within walking distance for the children
* Ample parking space for visitors. There were occasions when as many as 120
visitors called on the home at one time!
* Good location & easily accessible to visitors
* The back portion of the building has already been renovated into a dining
* The house was recently properly fenced up by a social group
Do try to make a date with the above Carnival and help make the dream of the children of Rumah Shalom a reality. See attached location Map.
