Nineteen Tzu Chi volunteers in Kota Kinabalu took 8 hours to replace the broken roof on Granny Lavia's house. Though tired, they were, nevertheless, truly happy that the granny and her granddaughter, Feocenovia, would not have to worry about rainy days anymore.

Since June, Tzu Chi volunteers from Kuala Lumpur started visiting homes of applicants for 2010 Study Grant Scheme. In the process, they learnt about Shalini's family to whom they provided emergency relief, a used computer and settled their outstanding school fees.

The Peng family used to throw away any unwanted things out of their house and this had resulted in piles of rubbish in their surroundings. With selfless love, Tzu Chi Seremban's volunteers turned the unsightly ruins into a real home.
