More than 500 mourners attended the funeral today of Sr Julianna Lim, who worked among the poor in Seremban through the IJ learning centre.
The Sisters strongly believe that it is only through values-based holistic education that children from poor families would be empowered to break out from the shackles of poverty.

This is in line with the vision of the founder of their Infant Jesus religious order, Nicholas Barre, who tried to make basic education accessible to all especially poor children in 17th century France.
And it was towards this cause that Sr Julianna and her colleagues dedicated their lives. People like them are real and often unsung Malaysian heroes.
