Step by step

Yash is a cheerful fellow of seventeen years old. Thanks to the training received in the DBMH program at St Nicholas Home we can proudly announce that he developed his skills to a higher level during the past six months.

Nowadays, is able to communicate with staff and his friends verbally by using Malay and English language. He is able to move around in the dormitory and able to follow staff’s instructions. Besides that he can wash his clothes and brush his teeth and bath without staff’s instructions. He is also able to put on his clothes, fold his clothes, and sweep the floor independently.  During meal time he is able to arrange the cups and plates for his friends and fill up water into the cups.

In addition, he can scoop food from the bowl to his own plate with little help from the staff. He can wash his plate and cup after the meal. Yash became quite independent in his self-care. He needs minimal supervision. He is able to clean the table after meals with little assistance from the staff. He likes to help in the kitchen by peeling big onions and garlic. While peeling the onions he feels it to know if there is any skin left. Besides helping out in the kitchen he listens to music and likes to dance.

The achievements of children like Yash show that the Deaf-Blind and Multi-Handicapped program is improving lives of disabled children. Therefore, we all our sponsors for your continued support through all of your generous contributions. Your help is greatly appreciated! 

Our sincere thanks to you for providing a better future for the young blind and multi-handicapped children. You’re a lifesaver. Your contributions will continue to help many other children like Yash to lead a secured and better life regardless of their disabilities.

We at St Nicholas Home are very proud of Yash’s good progress and with donations received through GlobalGiving; we can continue to help Yash and other children in the programme towards improving their lives for a bigger and brighter future! Therefore, we would like to thank all our contributors for your support and donations.
