LITTLE STARS MALAYSIA

What an amazing week we’ve just had in Malaysia filming for Little Stars!  Not only did Hospis Malaysia play fabulous hosts to us, introducing us to some of their wonderful patients in Kuala Lumpur but we also had the enormous privilege of meeting Malaysian Royalty when we traveled to Johor Bahru to film at the Pediatric Palliative Care ward in Hospital Sultan Ismail.

A visit by Her Royal Highness Raja Zarith Sofiah Idris, the Royal Patron of the Malaysian Paediatric Palliative Care Programme was arranged for the day of our filming.  Her Royal Highness plays an important, ongoing role in advocating for implementation and improved services for paediatic palliative care in Malaysia.  It was a pleasure to meet her and witness the joy and excitement the children on the ward had at the opportunity to meet her.

Over the coming months we’ll be sharing more from our time in Malaysia.  We have some amazing stories to share including Nami, a 15 year old boy with Spinal Muscular Atrophy who won gold at the Malaysian Youth Paralympic Games playing Chess and has now mastered ‘Blind’ chess in order to further challenge himself, although he has his full site.  And Linges, a young girl with a neuromuscular disorder who despite being wheelchair bound and reliant on a BiPap machine which assists her breathing attends school everyday and aspires to be a fashion designer.

Their stories are inspirational and we look forward to presenting them to you.   Please join our the Little Stars mailing list to receive updates.
