Caring changes lives
Always we were grateful for the year that has passed, for the good things, support, participation, cooperation, friendship. We shared in the many difficult moments of the daily lives of the abused, neglected and abandoned children who are in our care, and the impoverished situations of their families, and those of other poor children.
In Batang Pinangga we work for change.
Abused, abandoned children are cared for, able to live a different life, a change, from a traumatic experience to a secure and safe environment.
In Batang Pinangga, individuals and groups have the opportunities to come to support, to participate. There is no limit to what one can do to better the quality of life of others who are in need, for those who are victims of poverty and powerlessness.
Opportunities. Change. That is the best we can do.
As the New Year comes, we have again the whole year of opportunities. There is so much we can do for the abused, abandoned, and neglected children.
For all the Youth Ambassadors of Batang Pinangga, and all your families and sponsors, for the last five years, you have been with us in weaving chances for a new life. We have cared for a total of 40 children in our residential homes in 2017. Few of them have returned home. A number of them are grownups now and experiencing independent-living. The street children, the children from the garbage area, the school children in the community, they too, have enjoyed a good treat from the Ambassadors. They have been cared for. They have been loved.
Now we have 30 children and will add at least five more this year. We will continue with providing poor children with opportunities. In the Year 2018, let’s do it together once more. We just keep going…
