Heads up for the Lotus Centre!

This little boy was found eighteen months ago left in a bus shelter. This was not an act of neglect but an act of desperation by someone. Ewan Mcgregor's and Charley Boorman's account of their encounter with the UB street children evokes a real sense of the children’s need for love, attention, and a secure environment to live in. (please see ‘The Long Way Round’). The Lotus Centre’s mission is to supply each of these needs.
From babes and tots
to kids and teenagers.

The Lotus Centre is TOTALLY dependant on charitable donations of time and money from within the country and abroad. These Singaporean volunteers are enthusiastically entertaining the kids on their last day in the Centre. Their main mission has been to redecorate part of the centre, providing the materials and the labour to make it happenWith Wai Ling making new friends,
and seeing despair turned to joy, The Lotus Centre’s mission IS succeeding.

But Lotus needs money, equipment and people power to keep succeeding. Please visit the Centre’s website at and if you can, I urge you to help by making a donation. You WILL make a difference. Thank you.
