I posted earlier on informing that we will be making a charity drive this Mothers' Day, and last week, it happened! We together with other mothers, organizer, and staff from UMMC had successfully marked it a day in the calendar. We even managed to get more than the gifts that we wanted earlier. We have collected a total of 200++ gifts, which not just sufficient for the mothers who caring for the ill child, we even distributed it to the nurses. It was such a coincidence that it was also the Nurse Day when we were there.
I am sharing some photos of the gifts we collected and the group of volunteers. I did not managed to go visit the wards since I brought Princess along, and myself and the organizer who also brought her baby boy stayed at the lobby waiting for the rest to finish the distribution. Let me have some photos shown to you.

We all arrived in the hospital on time and it took all the volunteers together with the PR and nurses about an hour to complete the distribution process. After the distribution, we did actually sit down and yak yak before dismiss.
It's a good experience, and the hospital is newly built and refurbish therefore it doesn't really has that scary look of hospital. From the visit, I realize that the semi-government hospitals are now more appealing that before. We have suggestion to do this every year, and hopefully next year we can cover more hospitals such as HUKM and most importantly, our General Hospital of Kuala Lumpur!
I sincerely take this opportunity to also thank all the contributors, volunteers, and not forgetting the organizer together with the nurses for the money and time spent. It's a meaningful event to start the celebration of my Mothers' Day this year and I hope this can be continue every year.
