Jefit A series of Pictures tell a story

MHII 280611, 281011


Peace to all!


Jefit Anyir, 32 years old widow and mother to 3 young school going children aged 11 years boy Jong Kim Hon (Pri 5), 8 yrs old girl Jong Kim Choo (Pri 2) and 6 yrs old girl Jong Yan Choo in kindergarten. Jefit and her children live at Sg Apong Squatters Colony...


We will visit her this Advent.


Jefit has no formal education nor has acquired any special skills.

The demise of her husband has dealt a serious blow to the survival of her family.

Her late husband, Jong succumbed to cancer 4 years ago.

Relatives from the rural area have not been able to help.

However, thanks to the hospital staff who has helped her to apply for welfare aid for poor widow.

The monthly grant of RM300 was approved in Sep 2009 and credited to her BSN bank account since.

Life as a single parent, with no other source of income is difficult.

In days of scarcity, she would gather wild ferns from Sejingkat area to put food on the table.


Home is a simple wooden hut with rickety floor-board.

During the rainy season, her house would be prone to floods.


Her home address at No.32 Jln Sg Apong is a squatter settlement.

The road leading to it is a maze of narrow winding and undulated streets.

A GPS may not be of help.


Would you want to help dry the tears and put the smile back on the faces of this destitute family?



The path to Jefitís house is rather narrow and winding, suggest go there by car- pooling in small cars.

Visitors can either stand outside the house or stand near the corridor owing to the fragile house floor in the living room.
