Light at the End of the Tunnel
A total of 171 secondary and primary students, including 27 children of Tzu Chi's care recipients, benefited from the 9th grant-in-aid presentation by Tzu Chi Kinabalu. The presentation ceremony held at Tzu Chi Kota Kinabalu's Office was most touching when the parents and children went on stage to share.

Mohd Shafiq, a standard 5 student of SJK (C) Chung Hwa Likas, Sabah, received the grant-in-aid for the 5th time. He said he always reminded himself to study hard so that he could help his family and the needy when he grew up. The grant-in-aid has helped him to continue with his education without worry.

36 year-old Kham Suan Vong Deuan Pheng came from Laos. Four years ago, her husband left her and their three children for another woman. She was left to fend for the family and had to work as a babysitter and an hourly maid to earn a living. Her income was less than RM300. Luckily she has kind neighbours to help her out. Her case was reported to Tzu Chi and two months ago aid was given to her.

Both 10 year-old Fysouneica and 8 year-old Fshintah were recipients of the grant-in-aid. Kham was extremely touched for she could not believe that such a good thing had happened to her. Fysouneica promised to study hard as she wanted to be a scientist.

Volunteer Ong Tuen Yiok shared the story of "Bamboo Bank Era" to encourage the students to study hard and be a useful person; and more importantly, to be a person who helps others. Tzu Chi began with 30 housewives saving NT0.50/day in the bamboo bank to help the sufferings and now it has grown into an international organization with millions of people supporting the benevolent act. So everyone can do good deeds as long as they have the wish.

Many parents and students responded to Brother Ong's call by dropping coins into the bamboo bank. Love was flowing freely at the scene.
