Opening Ceremony of Mini Library in HUKM

Like what Kin Luoi has written in the last post, we have helped to set up a mini library in the cancer ward (4D) in HUKM. On the same day, we have been invited to the opening ceremony on 10th of September (Wednesday) by Dr. Bubbles. 

Before I start to talk about the opening ceremony, I shall not forget to give credit to Kin Luoi. She went to help on the day before (Yup, just her alone) because Su Fang and I went to Singapore. They have added on books on the bookshelf and decorated the mini library with meaningful quotes. This made the library much more complete than before.

Since the ceremony was going to start at 9am, we went early to offer our help. End up, there was nothing much to do because everything has been set up. There were many invited guests which included Yang Berbahagia Sr. Tuan Hasan Jamil, the President of Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM), and Encik Adli Muhamad, the representative from HUKM. The representative from media such as Utusan Malaysia and TV Al-Hijrah were also there. According to Dr. Bubbles, RISM has donated RM26,000 which was used to build the mini library and established the doctor clowning visiting program in HUKM for one year. 

The opening ceremony started on time after the invited guests have arrived at the hall. The emcee of the day was Dr. Shy, one of the committees of Red Bubbles. The ceremony started with speech from Encik Adli Muhamad, followed by Dr. Bubbles and Sr. Tuan Hasan Jamil. Next session was the ribbon-cutting and Sr. Tuan Hasan Jamil was invited to sign on the board. Finally, the ceremony ended with the goodies bags distribution to the children in ward 4D.

Since I was in charged to take photographs for our project, I followed the team to distribute the goodies bags around the ward. To be frank, I felt sad and bothered because the children are so young and they looked so different compared to normal children of their age. They looked vulnerable and weak especially after chemotherapy session. Not to forget about their parents, they looked exhausted because they are busy taking care of their children regardless day or night. While the only thing I can do is pray to god and hope the children can recover from their illnesses as soon as possible.

As a small reminder, Red Bubbles is a non-profit organization and their mission is is to bring smiles and laughter to seriously ill children in hospitals and other healthcare settings through regular clowning visits. They have tried their best to achieve it and make the children feel better. Here, I urge everyone to donate to Red bubble and make a difference in the life of a child. Finally, let's hope and pray for the sick children.
