WHO WE HELP
Rndm Shelter is run by five (5) Catholic nuns, who come together to provide shelter, love, and support to many ethnic minorities, migrants, 100 orphaned and underprivileged children, as well as sufferers of leprosy. These ethnic groups and families in the community live out their lives mostly in isolation and receive little assistance from the government and society. Illiteracy rate is high with most people still live below the poverty line, and have very limited access to non-farming activities.
WHAT WE DO
– Building a computer lab for the community
– Computer programs are taught by local teachers from basic to more in-depth knowledge
