"Kyden, daddy and mummy have contributed these gers (houses) under your name to those who seriously need it."

In the name of her son, Kyden, 27-year-old Kim Lim made a trip to Mongolia to build gers (houses) and donated food to the locals there to help them prepare for the coming winter.

If you've ever wondered what it is like to have all the money in the world and how to throw a baby shower that costs more than your annual income, Kim Lim would be the one to talk to. As the daughter of billionaire-philanthropist Peter Lim, one can only imagine the privileged life she's led growing up.

But having a child has changed her.

Now that I am a mum, it made me realise that kids depend on us for everything and it is important for them to have a good childhood.

I want my kid to grow up and understand the value of paying it forward and care for the people in need.

That is a value my dad has instilled in me, and I hope to do the same for my boy.

In an interview with The New Paper, Kim said she was first inspired to lend a hand to the homeless in Mongolia after watching a documentary on the issue.

I saw an unfortunate situation where the mother was unwell and needed medical help and a one-year-old was left unattended in the day without food.

In some cases, they do not even have the basic necessities such as clothes warm enough for winter and food.

To get a better understanding of what the Mongolian homes really need, she also visited the eldercare centres and orphanages in the rural area.

I strongly believe one should personally be on the ground to understand the situation and be involved in the charity process to make sure that all the help and donations reach the people who need it most.

What I can do alone is limited; I hope there will be a ripple effect from this charity and (it will) create more awareness of the homeless condition in Mongolia, and eventually more people can come together to work on it.

When asked about the social works she have in mind after this project, Kim said that she's still focusing on projects to help more children or people in a less privileged environment, but she's looking beyond Mongolia.

What she did deserves a standing ovation and it's stories like these that fills our heart. Let's hope that the children and people Kim's helped in Mongolia stay warm this winter ♡
