Kusarungkan Kasih Revisits Paediatric Institute, Hospital Kuala Lumpur

I can’t recall if I’ve ever blogged about Kusarungkan Kasih before. However, a short introduction: Kusarungkan Kasih is a non profit organization that organize volunteers to make pillowcases and distribute them to children with cancer and chronic illnesses in Malaysia. To know more, like and follow them on their Facebook page here.

Anyway, during the first semester school break recently, the team decided to do a short visit to Hospital Kuala Lumpur’s Paediatric Institute and hand over the pillowcases we’ve accumulated to the patients there. With donation from the public, we are able to put together a goodie bag consisting of hand towel, wet wipes and sanitary kit to go along with the pillowcovers. For the record, we made 300 goodie bags.

We invited 10 volunteers from Learning Oasis to join us to help distribute the goodie bags. They raised to the occasion and without hesitation came to help spread the joy. Thank you boys and girls of Learning Oasis. Along with them were a few individuals, friends of KSK who came to help out too :)

All in all, it was a good day. If you’d like to know more about Kusarungkan Kasih, do check out their Facebook page. We welcome handmade pillowcases all year round and when we have enough, we send them to various paediatric wards in Malaysia.
