A Poem By Kok Choong

A child cries in the night, cold, hungry. Do we hear the cries of countless numbers around us?


A child cries in the night, cold, hungry.

Do we hear the cries

of countless numbers around us?

Does the laughter of our celebrations

deafen us that we do not hear?



the Christ child's

coming to live, suffer

with us humankind.

We are strengthened

by his grace to share

love, justice and peace

to all.

Thank you for the collaboration

in rebuilding lives & communities,

responding to the peoples' cries in the Area.
