St Barnabas Home and Community Center (2nd visit)

Right after Warga Emas, we goto St Barnabas Home. We need to carry the groceries to 3rd floor which is the floor for the kids. There are 3 floors, with 2 floors for the males and 1 floor for the females. The home is funded by the Anglican church.

We talked to the care taker about how the kids end up here. Most of them are from single parent. Some of the parent only visit their child once a year. The kids are roughly 7 to 16 years old. Only two of the single parent contribute back to the home. When asked how the kids feel when they see their parent once a year, they say its normal and do not feel sad. Perhaps the young children understand the predicament they are in. Its sad to see such kids at this age having this type of burden and not living in the parents' love and care.

From our previous visit, we noticed that the kids here are well discipline. When we arrived at about 3pm, it was a hot afternoon and most of them were sleeping. Some of them were in the living hall with us as they cant sleep.


This time around, we have more people to join us with kids too. We are glad to see the participation of more people and hopefully more to join us in our next trip! Thanks for the toys from the Yeo family!
