Defying the odds

SIXTY children from two charity homes will be able to enjoy more space and comfort with the newly built cabins by Gano Excel Industries Sdn Bhd.
The two homes, Pusat Jagaan Siddharthan in SS3 and House of Love in Klang, were established to reach out to abandoned children, in hopes of providing them with love, care and shelter. As both homes rely on public contributions to make ends meet, it is a challenge to keep the homes running. Space for the children to sleep, study and carry out other daily activities were also a problem, until Gano Excel came up with a project called “Defying Odds”.
“Our mission was to empower, educate and motivate… to help individuals defy the odds of adversity. It was also our intention to help and support children suffering from disease, hunger, abuse, violence and environmental devastation,” said Gano Excel founder Leow Soon Seng.
With that, Gano Excel went all out to identify homes that were in dire need of help.
Pusat Jagaan Siddharthan founder S.K. Manimaran shared that a bigger space was needed to accommodate the sewing machines used by the girls to practise their tailoring skills. Now with the new cabin, the children have a bigger study and reading area, as well as a private sewing room for the girls.
At House of Love, the home was too small to accommodate all the children. “The sleeping area in the boys’ dormitory was crammed, but now we have space because, with the cabin, we have a new place to use as a study area,” shared founder Joseph Pang.
The cabins were also a testament to creativity, as Gano Excel collaborated with well-known Malaysian graffiti artist Kenji Chai to repaint the plain walls of the cabins with vibrant colours and positive vibes. The “Defying Odds” project took almost two months to complete. The cabins are made from high quality polyurethane panels and furnished with lights, fans and air-conditioners. Gano Excel pledges not to stop here; instead, the company is looking forward to bringing the same positive vibes and defying the odds for those who cannot, in view of a better world.
