Our Sunshine children come from different backgrounds-some from poor families, some from local orphanages. They do have to eventually leave our Centre, either to go back to their families or their orphanages after they have been sufficiently rehabilitated, or they get adopted and go to their new families. These farewells are never easy for anyone. Even when they leave our Centre, they never stop being our Sunshine children-their photos are on the
Our staff and volunteers also visit these children who were at our Centre at their homes or orphanages. During one such visit, the children at one of the orphanages told Dr. Ngan how much they would like to come back to our Centre to see all their friends.
This was their first time back to the Centre since the children left. A lavish buffet, music, gifts and beaming smiles of all the children was a great way to bring in the Year of the Golden Monkey.
