Review

The Yellow House is a very special place and the experience you can have there is simply great! This was the first volunteer I had when I first started my trip in Asia and so I will always be thankful to Shyam for giving me the opportunity to be part of her project, even just for a little while. During my traveling I've been here more than once and every single time has been great! If I am in KL for any reason, this is the place I want to be, because I know that I will feel like at home but at the same time learning some more about life and helping.
During my stays (which were always between one and two weeks), I have been helping with different projects and twice a week we used to go to the swimming pool to help the Special Children of Ampang. This is an experience that I would recommend to everyone! Is amazing how just have a swim with people with different abilities can bring so close to them and have a real and simple contact with the human being, at the most basic level. It's just about helping, swimming and playing with them but soon you will discover that actually everybody is the same in the pool! so you just have to enjoy your time because is something that you will remember for a long time! The first time I went to the pool was in November of 2014 and the last time in March 2016, and I have to say that it was so good to see the children again and that they actually made a lot of progresses and they had become such good swimmers!
The Yellow House is simply a must for me... You have to go there once and see what it is all about also because you will enjoy so much more your stay in Malaysia in general. In Ampang you can see a real part of Malaysia with all the food, the smells and the people that make part of this beautiful country.
