I thought the payment method from SCKLM website has some issues since my payment was delayed for 2 days. After losing track for a week and so, I'm suprise that the donation has reached RM430 as at 30/4/2010. Thank you for those who donated, it is very much appreciated.
I was having my regular weekend run starting at Bukit Aman this morning. The sunrise was rather beautiful, the sky was painted orange-red. The mountain is standing still at the far east. If I were in the mountain, perhaps I cannot see the beautiful sky, but I can hear the beautiful birds' singing.
I'm so thankful that I have no physical impairment, and I can easily support my live with basic needs, or even more than the basic needs. But for a blind person, it may not only affected him/herself, but may also affected the whole family.
Imagine if the father who is the source of income to the family become blind, the result of it may be, the kids have to stop schooling and go to work to support the family. The life of the family become difficult. We wouldn't want to see a kid lose the education opportunity. I'm not sure how many cases like this have in our country, but I'm sure, there are many cases in poor countries like Africa, Cambodia, etc.
RM30 is not too much for us, it may be only 0.01% of your monthly income, or may be is your hourly rate. But for a blind in Malaysia to earn this RM30, it may be take him/her 1 or 2 days effort in selling pocket tissues.
Do not think it may be too less, because your 'less' may be 'huge' for somebody else.
