We received a very special Christmas wish list last week from the children of Rumah Destiny in Gombak. There are 12 children in this home, so we each decided to contribute one gift from the wish list with a hand written card. pic.twitter.com/irN7dtBEN2— Farah Azmin (@farahshazliyana) December 22, 2020
