Your child is visually impaired. What is the right thing to do? Where do you find help? Upon diagnosis of the visual impairment, parents are often in shock and needed time to come to terms with the situation. At St. Nicholas' Home, parents of visually impaired children are encouraged to join the Early Intervention Programme (home-based) to help them to understand, garner support and receive counselling to help them cope with the trauma, emotions and challenges of caring for their children. project reportread updates from the field
Help the flood displaced people of Kelantan

The East Coast of Malaysia encountered the worst flood in over one hundred years. Many low lying areas have seen houses or even entire villages completely being destroyed by flood waters. What is most needed now is temporary shelters, house hold items, construction materials, tools and furnishing for reconstruction of homes, school and health clinics. Town areas will slowly crawl back to life but the Orang Asli will find it very hard to get life back to normal if no help is extended to them project reportread updates from the field
