Hi, my name is Nicole. I’m from P5 Honesty.
On 7 April 2018 I went to an orphanage called Abhimata in Bintaro Jaya. Abhimata is an orphanage for wonderful children who unfortunately don’t have parents, or their parents can’t take care of them.
At the orphanage, we were taken around and got to see what their daily life looked like. It was a really humbling experience, we introduced ourselves to the children, who at first seemed a little hesitant but soon became warm to us like we were good friends. We played games with them just like we would at school and read stories followed by comprehension questions, and when they answered correctly, they received stickers as a prize. Everyone had such a great time but I can’t imagine how I would cope in their situation, they are so brave.
After visiting them, I couldn’t feel more grateful to my parents, who love me unconditionally but perhaps sometimes I take it for granted. Thank you, mom and dad, for giving me everything that I need and for always guiding me in the right direction. Thank you Tzu Chi Primary School for this eye-opening opportunity.
