HOPE Worldwide - 15 mins from KLCC

2010.01.23
pixel
No, this ain't a picture from the 1950's of Malaya; it's 2009, KL.
pixel
Meagre survival; a cow grazing on coarse grass by a muddy road.
pixel
Human and garbage live side by side in most slum areas.
pixel
A 'single-storey terrace house'.
pixel
Often by no fault of their own, the poors in Sentul are predominantly Indian.
pixel
Whether the former tenants have simply vanished into the thin air of poverty or moved on to better homes, no one knows.
pixel
Destitute but friendly and warm at heart; a slum kid guiding the way.
pixel
Whatever goes; a very much makeshift cloth hanger.
pixel
They too are the future of our nation. What would you want them to be when they grow up?
pixel
Yes, they are looking up to you and me, those of us who are better off, to help them to see the days ahead.

This poor lady is taking care of more than 10 children, some which are not her own, but out of compassion she sheltered them all.
pixel
A shanty house of sorrow; every Malaysian need to play our part to give these poor souls a better tomorrow.
pixel
Helping the poor means more than just simply putting money into the donation box.
pixel
For richer and for poorer; now you know why they say dog is a man's best friend.

Too close for comfort; a garbage dump sits by the side of the 'house'.
pixel
The 'bathroom'. Seriously, one needs to see it 'live' with own eyes in 'full color'.

Electricity is courtesy of good Samaritans who paid for the bill.
pixel
If you think IKEA is 'standard' for every home, this dwelling will be your worst nightmare.
pixel
Most poor families struggle because the man of the house, for one reason or another, is no longer around.
pixel
pixel
Not sure if the fridge is actually working, or just a 'collectibles' from the local junkyard.

DancingDolphin Really good pictures (although I find the fisheye effect distracts from the subject)... interesting how children everywhere run, play, and smile with little regard for material things.
