Amateur Radio celebrates Eid / Raya Open House at Orphanage Rumah Aman Shah Alam 4 th Nov 2007.
It was an Open House with a difference! United Amateur Radio celebrated Eid with 24 orphans from the Rumah Amal Limpangan Kasih in Puchong and 30 orphans Ruman Aman Shah Alam recently.
Magic Shows, Telematch Games, Rappers Presentations, Amateur Radio Demos and other fun activities entertained the children. Food was plentiful too, with a variety of dishes served; from mee rebus, BBQ lamb, Murtabak and Pizza servings. The excess food did not go to waste; it was packed and given back to the two orphanages for the children's supper.
The children had so much fun and laughter! Many were rewarded with prizes from the games and telematches. Goodie bags were given to all who came, so at the end of the day no one went home empty handed. The magic show was excellent too, as it got both the children excited and adults laughing. The children also sang-along with a guest rapper from Senegal who entertained them with his songs.
Throughout the event Amateur Radio communication was also demonstrated to the children and adults by 9W2OBR and our senior member, 9M2DS.
The celebration attracted over 100 Amateur Radio members, together with their families and friends. It was day to remember indeed and an opportunity for all of us to interact with the orphans as well as "eyeball" each other
I take this opportunity to thank those who donated items as well as their time, including HAM members who donated food items (9w2afy,9w2 ice, 9w2gl) and those who gave their time as volunteers (9m2ds, 9m2mmm, 9w2adc, 9w2boi, 9w2vt, 9w2bsd, 9w2obr, 9w2tkk and many more).
