Emergency Aid to St Judes Home, Shah Alam

Melvin received a call from Ravi that they are running out of groceries and decided to drop by on the hot Saturday afternoon. Kandasamy was there expecting us and happy to see us as he has been sober up for 10 days. FYI, he is one of the homeless from Port Klang that we met during the night run.

You can build the house bigger than this...
Ravi 'complained' that Kandasamy just cant sit still and just keep working. Looks like he has big plan for the plot of land beside the house. From our previous visit, a new tenant has requested that we help her to find her daughter. Based on her story, she was admitted to hospital for 45 days (for mental illness) and upon discharged, her brother and family has moved away. As she cant remember the phone number and with her address on her IC, some volunteer has manage to track down her daughter. Sadly, her daughter has decided that she doesnt want her mother back. She was telling me that she just sent another letter and awaiting for reply. Kavitha is aware of this and has not broken the news to her yet. Sigh... can only pray the best for her.

The guy on the left has his head wacked in a gang fight and has recovered since the last time we saw him.

Most of the inmates are resting outside the home when we arrived
