The brightness of A Little Light
Translated by Jacy
“Halo, Bro Tan … Here we come …”the volunteers from Basel Christian Church Of Malaysia, Sepangarcalled out to the people in the house. Immediately after he said that, children were running out excitedly from the house. The children greeted us warmly, smiling from ear to ear. Their father, Bro Tan came out with his wheelchair as the volunteers put down the Manna Bag and took out the food from the bag to cross checked.
A small wound on the body, which was exacerbated by diabetes and was at risk of amputation. Bro Tan who has been the breadwinner of the family, but loss his job due to stroke. Now, the worsen wound added to his woes. Shortly afterward, an elderly lady walked out to the living room slowly. The volunteer moved forward to help and seated her on a chair.The elderly lady asked, “Are you from the church?” The volunteer responded, “Yes, granny.”She held the hands of the volunteers and said: “Aiyo … thank you so much, you all are really nice! So kind to come and send us something.” Then she continued, “It is a good thing to go to church, I go to church too …” Although the volunteers had visited her many times, granny still kept on thanking the volunteers for the care and food bags as if they were meeting her for the first time.
Watching the Tan family members walked into the living room one-by-one, our first-time volunteer, Xiao Yu wondered how come so many people can stay in such a small house. Bro Tan and his foreign wife have eleven children, plus their elderly mother, making a total of fourteen members of their family living under the same roof. Looking at their current living condition with so many people living under one roof, our hearts were inexplicably heavy. But what makes it even more worrying is that none of these children have identity documents, resulting in the loss of citizenship.
In fact, Bro Tan had applied for identity documents for his child, but was repeatedly rejected by the staff. Speaking of this, Bro Tan showed a disappointed and sad expression, and said: "The children are growing up, and I also hope that they can go to school." At this point, Xiao Yu thought of 7979's partnership with BCCM Sepangar to provide free legal advice to under privilege families. Therefore, we suggested to Bro Tan and asked him if he would like to have one. After hearing this, Bro Tan's eyes glowed as if he had seen gold, as if he had found a life saving straw and seen a glimmer of hope. A sad face was transformed in an instant, like hope in the midst of despair, a light in the darkness; although it was only a dim light, but it is enough to brighten the hearts of those who had been in despair for so long.
