We would like to invite teachers and parents to encourage your children to do paintings or design cards to encourage children with life limiting diseases, their family and health staffs. With your encouraging words and beautiful artwork, they will not feel alone in the journey of care and fighting the disease.

MAPPAC will handle the delivery of artworks to the respective individual according to donor's requests.

All sales of cards and paintings will go through our MAPPAC website.

Upon submission of paintings or cards, your child will be automatically enrolled as a member of our Angel Club. Your child will be eligible to join our other activities including Family Day, Children’s Day, painting classes & etc.

All the donations will go towards setting up Malaysia’s first children hospice care centre.

Date: 23rd February 2021, Tuesday
Time: 1pm to 2pm (GMT +8)

Synopsis:
The grieving parents of a sick child that dies experience a transition to life without their child. It involves a journey of transformation, finding new meanings and connections with their child. Grieving is a process. The journey of transformation needs to start and progress, and integrated into a new life, before complete transition is finally achieved. The ability to navigate this does not come naturally to everyone. Most parents in this situation would need some guidance along the way.

MAPPAC Angel Child / Angel Youth Card Project

The card making activity involves teachers and parents who are invited and to encourage their children to do paintings or card designing in support of the MAPPAC Angel Child and Youth Project. This we hope would serve as a source of encouragement not only to those children who are inflicted with life limiting diseases but also their family members and the health staffs who are always there for them. These beautifully worded and personalised artwork well wishing cards also convey a warm and caring message that they are not alone in the journey of care and fighting the disease.

For every card purchased, MAPPAC will handle the delivery of artworks (paintings or cards) to the respective children, family members or health staffs in accordance to the donor’s requests.

All donations will be channelled towards the setting up of Malaysia’s First Children Hospice Care Centre.
