I’m a mother and I can tell you it’s not an easy task to raise children. Being a parent is not only about giving life to a newborn, it’s also about the loving, caring for and nurturing your children and bringing them up with values so they can be a positive influence to society. But how about those children who do not have all that? Have you ever wondered how children who come from challenging or underprivileged families fare? What happens when a mother is a single parent and can’t cope alone? or when a family just has too many children and can’t fulfill the basic needs of their children? What if birth parents are abusive? or sometimes plain negligent? Well,life for that child would certainly be a the life that many of our children are accustomed food. When even food is hard to come by and a child has nothing to eat, or cannot go to school because they have no shoes to wear? Well, thanks to a silver lining in every cloud, there is help out there.
One such organization that have been lending more then a helping hand is the Good Samaritan Home. Run by the husband and wife team of Albert Ong and YM, the Good Samaritan Home is a non-profit charitable children’s home committed to serve the poor and needy children in our society. Its aim is to provide for the physical, spiritual and educational well-being of the children. The home started operating in January 1999 with just one child and currently has 32 resident children and another 30 children in the Extension Program.
Did you know that when a child first arrives at the Good Samaritan Home, they arrived, frightened, frustrated, anxieties written all over their faces, undernourished and neglected. These children have been removed from home because of derelict parents, or have suffered the heartbreak of a home shattered by divorce, run away parent, abandoned, or have tragically lost one or both parents. These are the children who come to Good Samaritan home. It takes time to erase the effects of these tragic experiences. Good care and warm love erase fears and dispels anxieties. Every effort is made to provide a homelike atmosphere.
Running a home for children can never be easy and a lot is needed in terms of support.
