Care-givers and Social Ministers Retreat 2008 (4 Days 3 Nights Light and Easy Camp)
In Malaysia, to care for disadvantaged group is a heavy and challenging job. It doesn’t help that the profession of social work is being overlooked and under recognized, rendering many of care-givers are heavily tasked to perform an all round role. While they passionately busy on serving their target group, very often they neglected the physical and spiritual needs of themselves and their family. Pitifully, quite some care-givers are hovering between the edges of giving-up and burn-out.
It’s time for Malaysia society to look seriously into the welfare of care-givers and learn to treasure their contribution towards the unfortunate community. Histeam with the mission to encourage the care-givers is organizing a care-givers retreat. Our aim is for a relaxing yet energizing 4D3N retreat, we are able to comfort those who were hurt, inspire the professional confidence, and to relieve and refresh those tired and weary.
