Feeding the Poor - Jan 2013

I was introduced to Tony, a fellow NGO who does feeding for the poor for the last 7 years. After initial discussion, we agreed to sponsor 5 families for 3 months as a start. Fund raising was done via Facebook, and was quickly done within 1 month. Thanks to all the donors who responded quickly we collected twice the amount targetted!  With the final donation collected of RM3200, we are able to sponsor 10 families per month for 3 months. So, on behalf of the recipients, I would like to thank to all sponsors for contributing to the fund for this activity.

We purchased the groceries for 10 families a day earlier, as the things need to be pack to ease the distribution the next day. On the rainy Saturday, I was joined by Jen C and kids, which provide much needed help in the hard labour.

We covered  areas around Teluk Pulai, Kampung Delek and Kampung Jawa. The locations of the home a bit distributed, hence took some time to complete the whole 10 families.

Biscuits and choco powder

All items packed and ready to be distributed.. Volunteers needed for the next round!

The first family we covered is a Cambodian Muslim family. The elder daughter, married with a kid was left by the husband. Tony had been sponsoring the home for 7 years when the the daughter was  much younger.

The home is located "somewhere" in Kg Delek...

The total of 10 recipients were Indians and Malay families, with different family background and hardship. If you want to see the other side of life, come and join us in our February Feeding. Again, thank you to our donors who have responded and contributed to the fund  - Wong WW, Yong WK & friends, Jen C, Uni Electronic Sdn. Bhd and Han Qin Cai for making this event a succesful one.

Total bill of RM988.80
