Orphanage Trip: Ciparay, Bandung.

This entry is long overdue. I am deeply deeply sorry.
I've been adjusting to the crazy practicum schedule and the amount of work that keeps piling up, at the back of my mind, I kept telling myself, "Nadya you've got to put aside time to blog about the orphanage trip" 

So finally, I get to sit down and blog. 

As I've mentioned in my previous entries, my mother went to an orphanage in Ciparay, Bandung so alhamdulillah, your donations have been put to good use, a portion of it channelled to the goodie bags for the kids, while most of it went to the funds for their everyday food. 

Every single day, they eat very little protein, mostly their daily diet consists of just rice and veggies grown around the area or rice with maggi mee. Yes, maggi mee is treated like a side dish. While initially my mother had every intention to use all the donations to buy new stuff for the kids, she soon decided that their everyday food is much much more important than small items in a goodie bag. 

In this orphanage, all the kids are given proper Islamic education and they are all on their way to becoming Hafiz Al Quraan which I truly think, is remarkable. 

Anyways, here are some of the pictures of what was in the goodie bag. Each and every orphan was also given a small sum of money (:

Also, during the trip, they made special arrangements to sponsor nice food for the kids so they had a buffet of chicken, meat and all the things that they usually don't get to eat. 

I'm sure you've definitely put a smile on their faces and may Allah reward you for your generosity. 
May we always be thankful for our parents, for the never ending rizq, for the education, for the food on our plates everyday. 

There are many others out there who don't have what we have, so remember to take some time, everyday, in your prayers to pray for them and to always set aside some money to donate to the less fortunate. 

May we always seek Allah's love in our thoughts, speech and actions.

Much love friends,
