I spent six beautiful weeks at Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children. Malaysia is very lucky to have a home like this where disabled children and adults can find people who care of them and give the love to them they never had. 
I've met here different patients with so different and complicated lives, but they live here together and give support to each other. They become often like a family for each other. I felt at home during this weeks because all the people living here and working here treated me very nicely. 
The girl in the picture is my favorite one, she is blind and so she can't see you and she never speaks but in these weeks she improved and learned easily a lot of things. So, they only need someone who cares and loves them. I hope this house will always be more full of volunteers and staff loving this patients.

The association is a place full of love and happiness. The past six weeks is one of the best memories I have ever had in my life because I did gain a lot and have much fun here. I really appreciate it for all the help everyone has done for me and hope that I can come back one day.
This is my beloved “little frog” in this picture. She is a patient in the baby section. When I first came to the baby section, she was tied by the staffs because she refused to be fed. Usually she sits in the crib playing with plastic alone. She seems a little autism because she doesn't like getting alone with people and will get extremely angry when somebody tries to touch her. After talking to the staffs, I know that she is unable to see. Her families seldom come to visit her, I saw them once, but they didn’t even touch her. They just stood by the crib looking at her like a monster. The coldness of her family made me want to give her more love since she is so small and sweet. We tried to walk her and she loved it very much. We also carried her and played with her. It’s really cheering to see she is making progress with our help. Nowadays, she becomes more and more used to get along with people. When we kiss her or carry her, she will show us a big smile. My dear little frog is just like my angel here, wish her peace and happiness in the future days and hope she can grow up healthily and happily.

I won’t forget the love, the trust and the happiness residents here gave me during these 6 weeks internship. They have purest smiles, cutest laughs, and that make people want to hug and listen to them. They can felt what I felt, even though we didn’t talk. As a psychology student, I tried to guide them to be more stable, be friendly to others. Besides, I worked door by door with fabulous staffs who taught me how to feed, how to do exercise and how to communicate with patients. It is to say, every day I worked here is so unforgettable and irreplaceable, and all people here became my close friends. They taught me how to embrace and love the imperfect, and be bold to live.

Finally, I really appreciate Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children Association ,Johor Bahru Malaysia gave me the chance to work here, stay here with the angels in Malaysia. Thank you very much.

I would like to thanks to the administrator of this Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children Association Johor Bahru, Johor for providing me these opportunity to make my internship here for three months. In this association, there provided me an occasion in apply my knowledge to the disabled children. Although I am freshman in the face with disabled children, but I never feel burden because of the kindness and helpfulness of the administrator and staff at this center, I felt that the thing going very smoothly and I had learned a lot from here. And also the children here ‘teach’ me a lot. Although there are disabled and unlucky, but they still live with laugh and strong. They make me feel ‘never give up with the world no matter how it did to you’.  I feel very happy and glad because can joined these association.

Love should not be selfish and you know you have your ability in helping the helpless.

The 6 weeks that I spent here at Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children Association JB has become an unforgettable time in my life. I would like to take this time to thank Mr. Rajamanikam and all the staff members here for making my stay here very comfortable. This internship allowed me to have a practical application of the knowledge I acquired from books and professors. Each individual at this institution possesses unique talents and this home provides an environment where they can apply their skills and be themselves. The patients always put a smile on my face and kept me entertained; they also helped me learn about myself and further explore my interests. I am extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity and I will forever cherish every second spent here. I am going to miss everyone here and I hope that my life path will once again cross with this wonderful organization. Thank You!!
