Distribution of Donated Milk Powder - Part 2

This would be the second last batch (19 cartons) of milk powder that was allocated to 1M1C by Hjh Ainie for distribution. I contacted HOPE WW after remembering one of my school mate is working with HOPE. So, thats the reason why you should attend school reunions!

After going through a bumper to bumper crawl on a hot Saturday morning, we manage to locate the Hope clinic located at Sentul. We were greeted by Ms. Katy, the Executive Director for the center. The clinic is located on top of a sundry shop, and an additional Learning Center on the next shoplot. Monthly rental is RM2800 for both premises.

Katy bring us around the center and explained to us on their operations, clinics, food distribution to the poor, children activities such as reading program and painting. There are currently 70 families receiving monthly food contribution from HOPE. Poor families can apply for food contribution and they will be interviewed to see if they are eligible for the contributions.

The clicnic started in 2000 and had serve more than 6000 poor recipients in the community. The treatments are free for the needies and it runs with 2 full time nurse and volunteers/retired doctors.

While we were there, a few families came up to the clicnic for the art class in the afternoon, and later was joined by a group of student volunteers from Mt Kiara International School.

As it was a busy day for Katy, we excused ourselves and headed out for lunch. It was an interesting visit and its good that HOPE is making a difference in the community. You can get more details  about HOPE WW from their blog and volunteer your time as well.
