Hello folks! Thank you for visiting this page! Your attention is very appreciated and valued.
Basically, my crowdfunding objective is as such, to purchase and set up a small independent farm for stray animals in Malaysia, rescued mainly from the areas of the capital (Kuala Lumpur) and Selangor.
Before I elaborate on said project, I would like to share with you about me, the people involved and why we're doing this.
I firmly believe that our Creator, or for any reason why we're here are to emphasize on the need and importance of our role to be assistive towards the natural order, instead of what we're doing today. In my life, as the result of childhood and adulthood neglect by own family, i had resorted to many occasions to find myself ending in numerous occasions to be in the company of an animal rather my own. The inability of me sustaining a normal relationship can be deduced to various reasons and the most I've heard from my companions and friends range from "being too dreamy, inconclusive of a future for oneself" and the least "my tendency to end up in abject poverty" as I have a unusual spending habit when it comes to the matters pertaining the heart or the welfare of a living being. i tend to give away more than i could earn as the damaged inner-child within me couldn't bear the fact seeing another suffer the same consequences that I faced throughout my life: being alone and helpless.
I did well in my career and moved to my country's capital, and found the love of my life, who sails in the same boat as i do, alone and she loves animals. Together we found ourselves adopting and rescuing animals within our state, and we decided not to have our own children and instead focus on our love for animals and strive to give them as much as comfort and care as we could throughout our life.
This soon came on a crisis when I lost my job three years ago, due to economic issues faced by my employer and my partner, decided she will take the helm of providing a living whilst i continue to find and rescue helpless animals. I soon lost my friends as I could no longer meet them and spend for regular coffee and outings (we were financially constricted) and I could not bear to seek any kind of allowance from my partner. I remained alone, without any human contact except the occasional glances exchanged between strangers when I shop for groceries or anyone I come across towards my journey to settle my bills and other household chores, and back home.
In the last three years, I formed a bond of love between my animals, whom I now regard as my children. Among them was Luna, she was a domestic kitten I found hiding in a drain that within the year, grew up to be my best friend and my great love, a child I felt given to me as I decided not to have my own, and we usually along with the other animals I rescued spend all our hours together, all day. My partner, she did not regard this unusual begin to see the beauty and intelligence in these creatures and loved them as deeply as I do, and we had a content life.
That was until Luna, being her usual naughty and high spirited self, jumped on the ledge of our balcony (we lived in a rented flat as that is the only one we can afford) and she slipped and fell to her death. I grieved deeply and I came to conclusion, after months of contemplating that her death was my fault for being unable to provide her ground and its my fault bringing her to my flat in the first place. My partner and I vowed not to lose another child, and we started looking for a landed property to rent.
Unfortunately, housing is a crisis in Malaysia. We couldn't afford a single house with the income we earn anywhere and also due to certain sensitive details pertaining to the nature of our ethnicity we're denied from renting low cost units. This is where, I conceived a idea that I like to present to you, the global crowd-funders, and leave it in your hands to make it true.
I want to start a small farm for animals, big or small, and be partially self sufficient. We would have green energy and I am now able to install and maintain the grid myself as well as able to harvest clean water from the environment, As for their food, our staple food is rice and its relatively cheap in Malaysia, and I am also able to cook large amounts of food for the inhabitants. I also learned over the time some construction work, big and small and I am able to build shelter from treated pallet woods and converting them to mortar based buildings over the course of time when I am able to save more funds from selling the proceedings of the farm (vegetables and fruits). The animals will be then put up for adoption or may retire at the farm till their death comes, and remain happy and stress free as how I believe our creator intended them to be.
I have pitched my idea at various places, and agencies and all have not supported the idea in defense that there are too many animal shelter available and I should be better off volunteering for said shelters. My argument is, these shelters are all heavily in debt and they are located in the city where real estate value is high. Also in Malaysia the definition of a shelter is a medium sized terrace house overcrowded with strays and has a lineup of animals waiting for the lethal injection if not adopted/too old/sick. I believe volunteers setting up small farms for strays will be the long term solution to this stray problem, and we will be able to operate at minimum cost and see no more animals put to death before their time is up and provide a open place for them to play and be closer to the nature as how they're intended to be instead of being crammed into small cages in brick houses in cities.
Of course, I will dedicate my life to this project. I love animals and I wish a good life for them, a dignified life, not a life of scrounging for scraps off garbage, abused and chased at. I wish the global crowdfunding community will make this project realized and I will be able to produce a systematic proven way to manage strays, a blueprint that will be recognized worldwide and receive government funding.
