Eden’s Sister Organization in Malaysia

Dual Blessing Association

 

Inspired by the work Madam Liu Hsia, the founder of Eden Social Welfare Foundation,has done for persons with disabilities, Madam Shen Chiu Hsiang (沈秋香), who is herself a person with disabilityfounded Duel Blessing,with her husband Rev. Ch’ng Joo Beng (莊如明牧師). Their years of experience at Eden's Service Center, Penang (檳城) for Persons with Disabilities working to promote the welfare of persons with disabilities had given them the means to set up Dual Blessing in August, 2001. 

 

 

The objective is to provide occupational training services, to create public awareness of persons with disabilities, to promote self-reliant programs and to improve the well-being of persons with disabilities.

To achieve optimum results, Dual Blessing has provided services such as vocational training including handcraft, recycling, computer skills, job placement, and counseling without any charge to the disabled and underprivileged. Services in Dual Blessing are open to all, regardless of race or religious affiliations. 

 

 

To put in practice the concept ofthe old saying “Rather than giving away fish, we teach people how to fish,”Dual Blessing believes that through vocational trainings, the persons with disabilities and former drug addicts can develop their independent living skills to improve their well-being. They also provide career services, looking at job placement programs.

In 2012, a group of visitors from Dual Blessing visited Taiwan to experience Accessible Tourism. Eden Social Welfare Foundation was in charge of planning their travel itinerary, their transportation, and the locations they would visit. They traveled all the way to the Sun and Moon Lake (日月潭) in Nantou (南投).
