A VISIT TO SHEMARIAH HOME

30th Dec 2013 — With the new academic school year just days away, it was a pleasant surprise for the children of Shemariah Home in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan when YTAH Director, Puan Ellina Abdul Majid, dropped by with stationery, books and other essential items to help get them equipped for school.

A cash donation of RM1000.00 was also presented from the Yayasan towards the operational expenses of the Home.

Set up in 2002 by Rev. Peter N., Shemariah Home, registered as Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Shemariah, provides shelter to 51 underprivileged children. In addition, a few senior citizens who would otherwise have nowhere to go, have also been fortunate in finding an abode at Shemariah Home to see them through their twilight years.

Shemariah Home is pleasantly located on a quiet hill amidst lush greenery on Jalan , Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan. Well-wishers and visitors are welcome to come by the home at any reasonable time for a visit. Rev. Peter and his small team of dedicated staff and volunteers believe that the best way to illustrate the Home’s sincerity in carrying out its duties is that visitors are free to pop by unannounced and see the activities going on at the Home.
