  13. 13. <ul><li>It made me realise the importance of our home – Singapore. Being in a less developed country and seeing the near-loveless state of those orphans, it has taught me that we are really fortunate to have such a great and wealthy country to call home, and that we should all count our blessings . We have loving and caring parents, the chance to study well, the opportunity to succeed in life… it is something we must really treasure and not be complacent . - Ang Chen Rui </li></ul>
