Groceries For the Needies - Oct 2014

As we have obtained a list of needy families, we had interviewed the families in order to start our Grocery For The Needy Program. Out of the 11 families interviewed, 8 families are still in current situation, while 2 had moved out and 1 had passed away.  The remaining 8 families become our very first batch of recipients for the groceries and will receive the groceries on every first week of the alternate month. The next cycle will be in January 2015 as this should have been a November activity.

The family profiles are single mothers with 4-6 children, OKUs and old folks. Based on the interviews that we have conducted, they do have jobs or some family members that are working, but their income is just sufficient for monthly expenses. With rising costs, we hope our little contributions will ease their burden. While we hope to be able to continue this in the long term, we also hope they are able to improve their own standard of living.

I will leave the descriptions of the family in the Facebook photo album...











Bread..all the way from KL to Klang. Someone had it for breakfast the next morning! :)









We hope our small contribution will help to ease their burden in their daily life. My appreciation to who have given their time, money and effort to ensure this program goes smoothly! :) Thank you all - Cecilia, Dymphna, Ryen, Winson, Richard, Ivan, Jenny, Melvin, Jared and Simon who have made this program POSSIBLE! We will put them in our Back To School Program in December 2014 to reduce the burden of the family.
