I wish to thank the Sungai Buloh Settlement Council for appointing me the lead of the “You Are the Hero” project, preserving their oral history and setting up the Valley of Hope Story Gallery. This project would not be successful without the blessings of the Councillors and the hospital authorities, especially Dato Dr Khalid Ibrahim and Dr Radhiah Mustafar.

I am very much indebted to Sasakawa Memorial Health Foundation and Nippon Foundation, Japan, for sponsoring the production cost of the oral history project and this website. Also, many thanks to Mr Lim Tian Seng for contributing a series of his wonderful photography work to enrich the contents of our story gallery, and for use as the header image of this website.  

We would also like to thank Tan Sri Dato Koo Yuen Kim, Mystartr Sdn Bhd, Persatuan Meditasi Prajna KL & Selangor, The KL & Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall, The Dramatic Art Society, Great Substance Sdn Bhd, Studio DL, Siao Ji Shi Kuala Lumpur, Purple Cane Enterprise Sdn Bhd, YB Dato Teng Chang Khim, Venerable Chi Chern, UCSI University, Seksan Design Sdn Bhd, Mentahmatter Design, Peeps Photographer, PTM Automotive Sdn Bhd, Perniagaan Yakin, Khind Starfish Foundation, Happy Yeye Sdn Bhd, Mr Kok Han Chee, Penang TDR Coursemates Association, and all of the other contributors and volunteers who have supported our fundraising campaign in their own ways.

Last but not least, the greatest gratitude goes to the residents of the Valley of Hope, who have placed their trust in us by contributing their stories!
