Do something special for Mother’s Day this year

I am terribly late in posting this but I only get the official letter from UMMC yesterday.
If you wish to help in getting a gift for mothers whose children are warded in University Malaya Medical Centre this Mother’s Day, please chip in. You can either buy the gifts yourself and drop it at three drop-off points or ask blogger, Christene to help you.
A box will costs about RM20 and we have some guidelines on what you can buy and cannot buy. For eg, all must be halal, no religious stuffs, no stuffs for kids (cos some mothers there are dealing with dying kids so you do not want to buy toys, right?) and that’s about it.
We started this several years ago because after my own son’s death in UMMC PICU ward (children ICU), another friend’s son too was warded there for almost a year before he too passed away. So, both of us have the attachment to UMMC and that sort of mooted off this project call Mothering Mothers.
We require 150 boxes of gifts and if there are extras, they will be given to the geriatic ward (old folks who sometimes have no family visiting anymore) and then, the nurses in UMMC PICU ward.
I should have gone to UMMC this Saturday but unfortunately, my hubby is working and I couldn’t join them.
So, people, will you do this for the mothers? Please have my assurance that though my breastfeeding group’s name was used in the letter, it has nothing to do with the group anymore. No promotion of the group whatsoever. UMMC used it based on their records. This is solely your contribution to the mothers in UMMC through these wonderful women from KL like Ros, Christene and a few others kind mommies. In fact, we opted not to let any press know about this because Ros and I feel that we shouldn’t make any publicity out of it.
