Keeping Fresh Momentum

06 June 2014

UPGRADE: Kunatarsini receives refurbished laptop.

Empowering over 33 families in Klang Valley and its outskirts, Shelter Community is determined to give children a future. With monthly food parcels,used laptops, school uniforms, and shoes; children in primary and secondary schools receive supplementary study aids, books, toys and moral support.

What keeps the Shelter momentum? Kunatarsini Ganesan, 14 of SMK Puchong Batu 11 states, “I never imagined that I could get a laptop without paying a single sen for it.” She added that it came just at the right time for yes srogasia, a mathematic internet based course conducted at her school.

Kunatarsini, eldest of three children, lives with her grandmother, younger sister Nantini, 12 and brother Thivyan, 7. Though beset with financial constraints and not being able to be with her parents at this time, her determination to go the distance is an inspiration to all of them.

Renewed: (l-r) Shamita Banu, Suzana, Inthumathi & Thivashini

Like Kunatarshini, Saravendran Arunasalam, 16 of SMK Cochrane Perkasa, Tingkatan 4 is eldest in a family of seven. When Shelter met him at his PPR Pudu Ulu flat in Cheras, he was escorted by a band of brothers and sisters giggling feverishly. To them this was a link to a whole new connection.

“I am so happy to get this” said Saravendran. “It will be so useful in BM research and all my class reports.” Over the past two quarters Shelter has expanded its food aid outreach and intake of children to its 3 Homes. With such expansion come greater adjustments to logistics and management.
