It is time for me to give back to those in need. As I wrote this post, I am in fasting month of Ramadan, the month of which fasting is compulsory for all Muslims. During this month, we are required to leave all the things that nullify fasting and multiply our good deeds to others.
Along with some friends from STAROBA Sabah, a student alumni association of Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Ipoh, were able to spend some time, energy and fund to give to the orphans and less fortunate boys in Darul Bakti, Kota Belud (map here). Darul Bakti is an orphanage home which is located in the district of Kota Belud, about 70 kilometers north of Kota Kinabalu. Occupied by 48 boys who comes from difficult family and have no parents, it is a small institution that played a role in raising the children to be useful to the community in the future. They were all aged from 6 years to 17 years.
We went there with the intention of breaking fast with them and donate some groceries for their supplies during fasting month.
We started our journey from Kota Kinabalu at around 430pm and back to Kota Kinabalu at around 1000pm. Quite an eventful evening. Thank you very much for all the members, and hopefully we will go there same time next year.
We even managed to make detour at Tuaran just to fill our empty tank with durians…
