Yayasan Sunbeams Home (YSH), a non-governmental, self-supporting multi-racial foundation, is home to displaced, abused and neglected children of single-parents. It was the brain-child of a husband and wife team Pastor Alvin Tan and his late wife, Pastor Lucy.
How We Started
From a home of first two half-brothers the Taman Mawar home has grown to a total of 132 children consisting of boys and girls. This number includes children from our Alor Gajah Branch, Teratai Branch & Daycare children. Our children range from 1 year to 18 years old.
We Welcome Everyone
A colourful blend of culture occupy its premises, which include, Chinese, Indians and Orang Asli, all looked after by pioneers and 40 plus others who make up the staff and some volunteers who come by to oversee the children’s studies.
“I feel sometimes that we are just like one big family. Suka Suka and Tasik Kenyir is different because they are challenging to me. This was my first time staying in a boathouse and I cant wait to stay in one again. Thank you for giving us a chance to kayak.“ Anna
“Throughout the camp, I have learned to be obedient, disciplined, caring and not to be selfish. I experienced difficulty when paddling but it was fun. Kayaking has built me mentally and physically and I have also learnt not panic when an accident happens.“ Erick
“I am so happy to go kayaking because the place is so nice. I like the food that Uncle Chok Wing’s cooks for everyone. When I get to go there again, I want to learn how to do CPR from Dr Suaran. So I know how what to do when there’s a problem. I would also like to learn how to cook mee. Thank you so much Uncle Tan and everyone.” Rina
