    All these charities are registered bodies and if you require tax-exempt certificates to be mailed to you for income tax purposes, please do include your name and address behind the cheques.

    And here's one for you and your family from Nat King Cole.

    Little Sisters of The Poor

    Let me share with you some info on The Little Sisters of The Poor home in Penang:

    Little Sisters of the Poor is the home for the aged located at Lorong Batu Lanchang in Air Itam. The Penang home of the Little Sisters of the Poor was founded in 1952, on a site donated by prominent philanthropist Aw Boon Par and Madam Teh Ah Lan. The building, constructed in the Art Deco style, along with its gateway, was completed in 1954, and officially opened in 1955.

    The Little Sisters of the Poor is a Roman Catholic order of nuns. It was started by a Frenchwoman from Brittany named Jeanne Jugan. The sixth out of eight children, Jeanne led a hard life. Her father died when she was small, compelling her mother to raise all the children on her own. At the age of 16, Jeanne took a job as kitchen helper to the Viscountess de la Choue. The Viscountess was a devout Catholic. She took Jeanne along when she goes to visit the sick and destitute. Her charitable work had an effect on Jeanne, who nine years later decided to take up a job at the local hospital. She worked there for six years, and left that job when she went to work for an elderly woman. Together, the two women began to look after the poor and destitute, until when Jeanne's elderly companion passed away.

    In 1837, Jeanne and another elderly woman, 72-year-old Francoise Aubert, rented a small cottage and used it to form a prayer community. They were joined by Virginie Tredaniel, a 17-year-old orphan. Together, they started a ministry to teach the catechism and helping the poor. The Little Sisters of the Poor organization had an unofficial start in 1839, when Jeanne brought home a blind widow named Anne Chauvin and began looking after her. Through the encouragement of her companions, Jeanne began the work to look after abandoned elderly women, forming the organisation now known as the Little Sisters of the Poor.

    Jeanne Jugan passed away in 1885. On 3 October 1982, she was beatified in Rome by Pope John Paul II. Today, the organization that Jeanne Jugan founded runs homes for the elderly in 32 countries, including the one in Penang.

    No need to thank me because I have said it earlier it is better to give than to receive. Moreover, I have my fun serving the 2.8kg sexy looking christmas Chicken to forumers and thier families at the book x change which they thought it was the turkey.
    I remember once, I sent about 5 chicken to a community together with the Sunway hotel turkey .....and the children whacked all the chicken but left the poor turkeys aside.

    Let me share something with the forumers here on why a lot of money is required to add extra beddings to a hospice home. First & foremost, the beds required are not the ordinary beds you and I use at home. These beds are single beds and have protective barriers to prevent patients from falling nover at night - which is possible due to intense pain they suffer being terminally-ill cancer patients. The beds also come with special equipments to lift and lower and tilt and thats why we need to buy specially-made beds. Here's a picture of a sample of these types of beds:



    So, for this Christmas season, if you could spare a kind thought for the people living in the hospice and many of those denied the chance because of a lack of facilities, do help us to help them.

    We appreciate even the smallest amount of donations, just send us any amount that you feel comfortable with, and help us to help those that need the special care in the hospices.

    Say what??? Even if we dont need it since we can afford to go SJMC, it doesnt mean that all people in SJ or USJ is that rich. And just because it doesnt benefit the forumers, take heart for the MP when he pushed this idea to set up community service or hospital. We can be that selfsh. At least, it is better than F1 idea.

    Why not you go search for the thread about MP Loh Gwo Burne and his community clinic project in this forum some months back and see how some forumers criticised his wasting of time? In the meantime, lets help this thread get back on track?
