The purpose of this blog is to capture if not all, at least the significant moments happen in Baitul Fitrah.. and to give feedbacks to those who help and contribute to the wellbeing of the kids there. Later in the future, I plan to put up more details on the history, about those who visited Baitul Fitrah, and other activities, InsyaAllah..
Briefly, Baitul Fitrah is setup by Kak Masliza since early this year. Before Baitul Fitrah, she has been taking care orphans in rumah kasih sayang in bandar puteri and also orphans that are staying with their mothers (ibu tunggal). Ibu2 tunggal yang Kak Liza bantu ni adalah dari golongan miskin dan susah. Ada yang kerja kilang dengan average salary RM400-500 a month dengan anak 4-6 orang. Ada juga yang menjual kuih dan nasi lemak. Di samping itu, ada yang kena sara ibubapa yang sudah tua dan tidak sihat. Although Kak Liza herself ada anak 8 orang, she and her husband still find the strength and time to help those in needs in whatever ways possible. Sometimes she would distribute beras dan minyak to the families and sometimes she will help by sending them to clinic or hospital when they are sick.
At the moment, there are about 40 kids under the care of Baitul Fitrah and 16 ibu tunggal. About 17 of the kids stay in Baitul Fitrah. We are renting a semi d house for the girls and a flat for the boys. Monthly expenses for the house and flat, makan-minum, belanja sekolah, clinic visit, etc is about RM5 to 6K a month. For the kids who are not staying in Baitul Fitrah, we are helping the mothers/ibu tunggal by settling the school fees, belikan baju and peralatan sekolah dan distribute food such as beras, gula dan minyak.
Up till today, we are able to support these kids with the donation (cash, food & barang2 keperluan) from many generous people. May Allah reward you for your deeds. If anyone would like to visit Baitul Fitrah or contribute in any ways, kindly email to firstname.lastname@example.org or just call/sms me (hp:012-3751444).salam,
