Being adapted, taking care of you and provide best food ever. All those remind me of my own family in my own country. Thank you Ibu Hairani for taking care of me. Thank you BHEP for making this happened. Thank you UPMISA for guiding us to this program. Thank you so much everyone for such an amazing experience. Its definitely worth it.

We have been repackaged for communal living and cultural tolerance through this programme. I experienced another home away from home with the foster parents.
