The Story of 20 Youth Volunteers and their 4-Day Adventure

23 to 26 September 2015, HOPE Volunteer Corps at Ipoh, Gerik, Penang & Kuala Lumpur

The first HOPE Volunteer Corps (HVC) happened in Malaysia with a total of 20 youth & campus volunteers, spent 4 days, traveled a total 826.2 kilometers to 3 cities, a 4-hour boat ride to 2 Orang Asli settlements. It was a memorable adventure, with fulfilling and inspiring communities outreach experiences to both urban poor and rural societies.

The HVC started its journey on 23 September to the beautiful heritage city - Ipoh. There we reached out to the orphans in "Anning Home" where we organized English Reading Program for the children and Boardgames Session for the teenagers.

On 24 September, we set our journey to the further north - Public Jetty of Pulau Banding, where we set our sail in a houseboat, carrying groceries and KFC Meals which are sponsored by KFC & Pizza Hut Malaysia, together with the volunteers from Motorola Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd and a group of medical students, we reached out to two Orang Asli Settlements. Beside giving Free Medication and Groceries to the Orang Asli Community, we also set up solar lights among the settlement area which the lights will absorb the solar heat at day, while the light functions at night to light up the path for the community.

On Day 3, 25 September, we are at another Heritage City - Penang, the home of our HOPE worldwide Free Pediatric Clinic. There the volunteers made a Spring Cleaning to both the Clinic and the Centre of HOPE worldwide Penang. Right after that, led by our professional facilitators, we had a fruitful self-discovery session with a group youths, and as well an awareness workshop about "How to stop bullying at school by being a Buddy instead a Bully" which are so frequently happened among the youth students at school.

The final day, 26 September, we set our journey home - Kuala Lumpur. There the volunteers organized home visit to 15 beneficial families to conduct interviews to know more about the needs and situation of the urban poor families.

During the closing ceremony, each of the volunteer shared about the precious experiences they had gained throughout the 4-day journey, the deepest thoughts that stirred their hearts and mind when they were there, reaching out to the poor and needy. Everyone gets a Certificate as an acknowledgment of their endeavors in the HVC!

Thank you to ALL FELLOW VOLUNTEERS! And we hope to have you guys and even more youths and campus students to be on board with us for the coming HVCs.
