I had a wonderful time when I went back to Miri during this CNY. Not only I get to finally meet up with my good friends & catch up and eat, laugh and cry but also, Christine and I had a very memorable & touching moment with the children at the land fill which my group and I did a video documentary about it years ago.
We initially wanted to find Jessica but we couldn’t find her on the first day so we got to know 6 more children! They are B.E.A.U-TIFUL!!!
OMG, I LOVE THEM TO BITS!!
Christine and I returned the second day to pass them some pics which I took earlier on and we discovered another part of the landfill. The location was bigger compare to 3 years ago! Upon arrival, we saw the kids playing around happily. We got down from the car and we have a 340 degree mountain view of rubbish! The smell was unbearable at first but after lots of talking & laughing with the kids, we totally forgotten where we were and was immune to the smell.
We found Jessica on the second visit and I was truly happy and excited to see her again. Her eyes are gorgeous!!
But sadly, nothing has changed for her since I last saw her instead it became worst. She does not go to school anymore and IF I am not mistaken, the Buddhist Association has stop visiting her.
Most of the children are unaware of their age and clueless as to whom the parents are. They still scavenge through the landfill in hopes to find whatever they can utilize or consume to reduce their starvation. It is truly heart breaking to see them in this situation.
Do anyone know how Christine and I can open a legal charity fund for them? Any guidance, advise or help you can provide to us is truly & highly appreciated.
