Kechara Soup Kitchen helps to reunite a homeless with her sister-in-law

Jul 23, 2010 | Views: 446

Today, Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) is mentioned in The Star newspaper again for helping to reunite a woman with her sister-in-law who has been living on the streets for 3 years. I’m very happy to hear that another homeless is off the street through KSK.

Sis-in-law Found After 25 Years

Thursday July 22, 2010 | By JOSHUA FOONG and SHAUN HO | newsdesk@thestar.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR: After three years of living on the streets, Jit Kaur had an emotional reunion with her sister-in-law, whom she had not seen in more than 25 years.

The 63-year-old former drug addict, who has been sleeping along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, was evidently surprised when she was approached by the “stranger” who offered to take her home.

When the relative, Anita Kaur, produced an old photograph of Jit with her soldier husband, an overwhelmed Jit was struck speechless.

Dietician Anita Kaur persuading her sister-in-law Jit Kaur to return home with her Wednesday after 25 years of being separated from the family. The women had an emotional reunion Wednesday after Jit, 63, was approached by Anita, who went in search of her after reading a story about her long-lost relative living on the streets of Kuala Lumpur. – AZHAR MAHFOF / The Star.

Emotions aside, Jit was initially adamant to stick to her current way of life, but after much persuasion from her sister-in-law, she relented – she agreed to give Anita a chance by agreeing to spend the night with her at a hotel and take care of her affairs later.

Before the much-anticipated meeting, an excited Anita, who said Jit had been shunned by the family for years, said: “I wish that our encounter will be filled with forgiveness.”

“Although I am excited to meet her after 25 years, I hope time has healed our scars and we can look to building a happier future,” she added.

Jit was thankful for the reunion but admitted that it would be hard to adjust to a “normal lifestyle” after living on the streets for so long.

“Thanks to The Star and Kechara, I have met my family.

“But, it is hard for me to just leave,” she said adding that she had “some things to do” before following her sister-in-law.

Jit’s story, which was featured in The Star on Monday, caught the attention of Anita from Bukit Beruntung, who contacted the daily for help to locate her relative.

Arrangements were made and a team from The Star and Kechara Soup Kitchen took Anita to look for Jit.

Reunited: Jit with Anita (background) on her way to a happy reunion Wednesday.

It was fortunate that she had used her real name when interviewed by The Star early last month, as KSK coordinators Justin Cheah and Jace Chong knew her by another name, Habiba.

The team met with Anita, a dietician, at KL Sentral at 8pm and showed her a recent picture taken of Jit, and Anita immediately recognised her.

On the way to finding her long-lost relative, Anita admitted that relations between both their families became strained soon after Jit married Anita’s brother.

 
Dear everyone, I am so proud of my KSK team to help the homeless in such a manner. Wonderful. This is what I want KECHARA TO DO FOR SOCIETY. I VERY MUCH WANT KECHARA TO SERVE SOCIETY AND DO MUCH MORE IN THE FUTURE. Warms my heart so much to see this. Beautiful story. I wish them luck from the bottom of my heart.

    There is said that instead of giving food to the poor, we should teach them the way of finding food. Kechara Soup Kitchen did a great job in this! KSK not only gives food, KSK also gives hope to the homeless.

    Homeless people always been discriminated by the society and no one will listen to them. Because people have wrong idea about them. In fact KSK shows us that not all the homeless are ‘bad’, but some of them really need help and care from the society in order to get back their normal life. Homeless people are the ones who lost their way out from the hard situation. It is not a big deal if they don’t harm people. But even in our society, wealthy people do bring harm to others too.

    Thanks to Kechara Soup Kitchen for all the hard works. 🙂

    Holy smokes. Jit Kaur(Habiba) looks so good now. What a transformation. I truly hope she will adapt to living off the streets and be happily united with her family. She has always been rather positive whenever I spoke to her at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

    It is very touching to see Jit Kaur and Anita Kaur affectionate in the picture taken above. All the best Jit Kaur! Thank you Anita for having the courage and a big heart to come out and accept Jit Kaur back into your life.

    I rejoice in your good work KSK! KSK Boleh! Keep it up.

    When are down and out and living on the streets.They need more than food.the homeless need a chanceto get back on their feet and be independent and have their own self esteem. The sick needs medical care, medications and sometimes to be hospitalised.People like Jitwho has been living out on the street for three years and who has relatives needs to be reunited with her family. KSK has done just that. And helped get another homeless off the street to be reunited back with her family. So KSK doesnot only just feed the homeless but also provide the abovementioned services with the main aim to get them off the street and help them to get back into the mainstream of society. Syabas to KSK for agreat job well done. Of course with the help of the Star Media.Un

  6. Susan Lim on Jul 30, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    Love this story! KSK is not only taking care of hunger but also, friendships, putting people back on their feet through jobs, and reuniting families.
    What crossed my mind when I was reading this post is that we are all interconnected. Every person out there is a mother, a daughter, a father, an aunt, a brother, a sister, a niece, a friend to someone. Everyone is a special person to someone. At such, if we were to think along these lines, we will naturally respect, gives dignity, kindness to strangers who may not be “related” to us. Would we want our sisters and aunts abused, neglected, put down by others? No! So let’s find it in our hearts treat those we come across with more kindness…
    Thank you KSK and thank you Rinpoche for your vision and manifesting this beneficial, charitable outreach arm of Kechara.

    Indeed a heart rending story. KSK has really grown in a few years and will no doubt grow even bigger in future. I was on one of those rounds and I can see the fantastic work that all the KSK volunteers are doing. Of course it breaks my heart to see these homeless people, some by choice but many are just being unfortunate.

  8. yoke fui on Jul 25, 2010 at 7:55 am

    Thank you Martin for your sharing. Many people, myself included, just can’t understand why are there so many people choose to live on the street. I mean Malaysia is a land of plenty, if one is willing to work it won’t be so difficult to have a roof over one’s head.
    However , these homeless people want more than 3 meals and a bed. They want acceptance, understanding and emotional support from their families.
    As family , we always have expectations on each other. When a member of the family can’t or won’t do what is expected of him/her, it difficult for us to forgive , accept and continue to give unconditional love and care.
    It only takes a look or a word to be the last straw for someone to take to the street and become another homeless person.
    With the insights shared by Martin, we will be less critical and more sympathetic towards the homeless.We have been taught to be more open minded. This should be extended to the homeless too.

    It certainly is a very heartwarming real-life story we are reading of Jit’s reunion with Anita. I hope this reunion will show Jit that there are so many people out there who do care for her. Firstly, her sister-in-law Anita who wasted no time in looking for her does care for her. The Star has done an amazing job in highlighting Jit’s plight, without which Anita would not have learnt of her sister-in-law’s where-about. I think Star truly lives up to their their tagline “the people’s paper”. KSK team not only feeds the hungry, they cared enough to go all out and make this reunion possible. All these efforts combined have helped Jit get on her feet again and she even hoped that the “family” she left behind would find their families and homes again. Wow, what an inspiring story. Just this story itself thought us so much about forgiveness, compassion, selflessness, generosity and yes, peace!

  10. Paris on Jul 23, 2010 at 11:04 pm

    Fantastic news about Kamaru – got the SMS updates already. Thank you Martin and bravo!
    It is interesting but sad to hear what you have shared Martin, about how the homeless actually prefer being on the streets because there is more judgment and criticism “back in society”. Unfortunately, this is so true and hearing him say that alone is a teaching.
    At the heart of every difficult situation is a suffering person, no matter how horrid or difficult they may seem to be. It is all the other baggage and expectations we bring along from our own experiences that make it so difficult to see the situation for what is really happening – that the other person is also suffering.
    It is interesting that when we are doing work like this, you see the person for who they are and try to help them out of their immediate problems. There is no judgment because there is no history or baggage and you don’t know what has happened before. Whether it is meeting someone new on the streets, or even meeting someone new when they step into our Dharma classes in our nice, comfortable temple – being in a place like Kechara, you’ll always come across people with problems and difficulties and you learn to find ways to help that problem, instead of getting stuck on the whys, hows, history, baggage, perceptions, expectations.
    If we can only learn to approach every situation and difficulty like this – we would resolve problems so much easier. It really is by work like KSK that we learn to open our hearts and help a person unconditionally, no matter where they have come from. This wonderful story about Jit shows us how to really let go of the past and how there can always be a new beginning, a new solution to every difficulty. I wish her and her family all the best in their reunion and starting anew to a bright and wonderful future together.

  11. Jace Chong on Jul 23, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    What you say is very true Martin, it’s their mind keep them on the street and what the society think as well. We need to break that thoughts and inject them with positive energy.
    I got a call from Justin just now said that you were getting Kamaru Zaman off the street after he discharged from hospital, good job man!! I’ve tried to pursuit him to go back Kelantan but didnt make it. Thanks for arranging and sponsoring Kamaru to stay in a hotel these few days and he is going back to his family in Kelantan on Monday by bus. Yes, one more person off the street, yea!!
    Really admire your consistent efforts in helping KSK!! Let’s do more!!

  12. martin on Jul 23, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    I am glad to read good news like this one and i cannot wait for the permanent soup kitchen to be operational. In future i hope we can also offer more in depth counselling and “de-briefing” sessions for our homeless friends before sending them “home”.
    In one of my encounters with another of our KSK clients, i got talking with the client and was made to understand that he prefers to stay on the streets than to be at home! The reason is simple – on the streets, every other homeless person they meet is an “equal” meaning to say that at some point in the past they (well, some of them) stumbled (e.g. got into drugs or got incarcerated for a crime)and as such the homeless do not cast judgements on one another. They accept one another. Over time, they become disconnected from the mainstream society.
    At “home” he said, he is reminded, judged and punished daily, albeit subtly. In other words, he is never really forgiven and the stress of that makes him prefer to be on the streets.
    There are 2 sicknesses here…the first by the homeless who may have committed a wrong-doing in the past due to a weakness in character or a wrong judgement, and the second…the failure of people and society in general to show compassion and genuine forgiveness. Sad.
    Congratulations to Anita for taking the initiative to reach out and never forgetting a family member. And all the best to Jit.
    There are many stories out there, and many of the homeless make great teachers for us who live by grace.

  13. Carmen Koo on Jul 23, 2010 at 11:58 am

    It is funny how things can change and happen so fast, when you least expect it to. One minute, you may be at the comfort of your own home (in this case, the streets for Jit), and the next minute, you may be thrown out of your comfort zone to a completely new situation; fazed by a whole new uncertain environment in which you would have to adapt to. Hence the concept of impermenance.
    It was just last Saturday during our KSK midnight rounds when Jit (known to me as Habiba) requested for an umbrella to protect her from the rain. I was going to purchase it before the upcoming rounds on Saturday before I stumbled upon this story. I am ecstatic for her. I sincerely hope that this would be the beginning for her to be re-introduced back into society and to lead a life away from the harshness of living on the streets. I am glad that she does not need an umbrella anymore to shield her from the spitting rain whilst she rests on the pavement. All we can look forward to is how she will adapt to living with Anita in the coming months – lets hope for the best!
    Thank you Rinpoche for the guidance. Without you, Kechara would not have come about, without Kechara, KSK would not have been established. Thank you to the KSK team for the dedication in feeding and serving the needs of the homeless and urban poor. Stories like these inspires the team to continue their hard work. It brings joy and happiness for volunteers to know that they are helping in someway, even if it is just one person that has gained (though note that KSK has had numerous success stories, not just one!:) ) from KSK’s cause, it is still worth it. And last but not least, thank you to The Star for always highlighting the plight of the homeless, and continually supporting KSK. It is much appreciated. If it wasn’t for you guys, Jit’s story would not have reached Anita. The People’s Paper indeed.

  14. patsy on Jul 23, 2010 at 10:39 am

    What heartwarming and happy ending news! KSK not only serves food to the homeless,provides medical assistance, find jobs for the homeless but also reunite families back together.
    The dedicated and devoted team has done so much to reach out to help the poor, the lost and the destitute. This sets such good example of putting compassion through action and this is what KSK is all about.
    Well done to the hardworking team for bringing another family back together!!!

  15. Janice on Jul 23, 2010 at 9:23 am

    I am constantly amazed and humbled by the KSK team, especially Justin. Relentless dedication and sincerity to do whatever it takes to help the homeless and the poor. Through KSK, i have learned to be grateful for what i have and am today and mindful that i should not waste. Friends of mine say they have heard about KSK many times in the press and say KSK does a super job. Every resource whether it is food, medical care or just offering comfort and happiness should not be taken for granted. It is through KSK and the other departments in Kechara that we put into practice what Rinpoche has taught us. Thank you Rinpoche and KSK for not giving up and always giving hope to those who themselves may not know how to reach out.

  16. Shirley Tan on Jul 23, 2010 at 4:20 am

    KSK has indeed come a long way from 2006. It never ceases to amaze me and inspire me what stories KSK will share every week. There is always somehow always a happy ending despite the grim reality on the streets.
    I think this is perhaps what summarises KSK best – it makes the happy endings from all the sad stories in the streets.
    We may not always win, but we surely will do our part in serving the society. And that part is to keep the hope real and alive in the streets where it is most needed.
    Kechara is all about Real Life Action Dharma.
    Thank you, Star for always being so supportive. It is immensely helpful to have the media do their part in contributing to the causes in our city. We all can do our little part for sure. Then, together, it becomes a big difference.
    Rinpoche, what will we ever do without you?
    You have benefited us and so many Malaysians just by being in our lives, our country and our world.
    Thanks to you, most of all. Nothing would have been possible without you, first and foremost.
    With all our love, always.

  17. John Colquhoun on Jul 23, 2010 at 1:32 am

    What a heartwarming story! I hope Jit adjusts to living with a family again easily and that they can overcome the disagreement that saw her leading a life on the streets.
    I hope this sets a precedence for further homeless people.
    Well done all who were involved!

  18. Li Kheng on Jul 23, 2010 at 1:20 am

    KSK is doing so much. They started with feeding the homeless…then they helped them secure jobs and a path back to living “normally”…NOW, they united a family and created an opportunity for forgiveness.
    Kechara House is already doing so much to serve Malaysians. Imagine what Kechara House can do when KWPC is completed! Such happiness will not only be limited to Malaysia…it will reach many other parts of the world.
    Wonderful work KSK team. Thank you for your sincere dedication and care for the those in need.
    Sincere thanks to The Star as well for being a friend to Kechara and its cause.

    So brave of Raden to risk his life to save the dog. How many of us would dare to take this step? It is an inspiring story that we all should care and love all living beings. They deserve to live freely too. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heart warming story.

    It is ridiculous to think that a rabbinical court would sentence a dog just because they believe he was the reincarnation of a lawyer who offended the judge before. How would the judge know and can confirm that the dog is the reincarnation of the lawyer? Isn’t it abusing of power to make baseless allegation? This is us human trying to be more superior than animals and make decision based on own interest. Horrible act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post explaining each and every steps the importance of starting our Dharma practice on Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini being one. Besides our daily sadhana we should engage in Vajrayogini’s practice without delay. Life is short, not to waste our time . Start now learning from stretch, as Rinpoche has create the beautiful pure land for us to practice Dharma. For me,I still have plenty to learn and improve myself . I am one of those lucky one to have meet Rinpoche in this life and to become part of Kechara. Reading this post gave us a better understanding of how to prepare ourselves before receiving the practice of Vajrayogini . We are indeed fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing this post , once again thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    nformative article on Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen which more and more people should read and understand better . The truth is the truth and how Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen rose as a Dharma Protector as promise. The closeness of 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, has cause jealousy among the officials that led to the murdered of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen more than 400 years ago by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama. The 5th Dalai Lama realised the mistakes of his officers , then built a Dorje Shugden chapel and composed a prayer texts . The Chapel still exists at Lhasa known as Trode Khangsar.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting write up

    Well good and very informative article reflexology. After reading it , I learn some knowledge from there. Reflexology may be beneficial in restoring balance and harmony in the body and releasing tension. Practitioners believe that it helps facilitate a deep state of relaxation, calm the emotions, and produce a peaceful mind. Researchers have been doing a research on it , found that there’s many benefits to support it. When an application of pressure to our feet, hands, or ears , it sends a calming message to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level. That’s fantastic.
    Interesting read of how the spread of reflexology was introduced to Europe can be traced to the 14th Century. And then to USA , by William H. Fitzgerald, an American doctor known as the father of reflexology. And how he developed the Zone Theory.
    Thank you Pastor Antoinette Kass for sharing this post.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice was first established within the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. They regarded Dorje Shugen as an enlightened being, as such together with Setrab and Tsiu Marpo formed the triune of Sakya Protectors known as Gyalpo Sum. It was practiced first by the Sakyas and was later transmitted to the Gelug school where it was practiced by the majority of the Gelugpas. Many high Lamas has since been relying on Dorje Shugden as their dharma protector as they its a beneficial practice and has continued to thrive due to the courage and commitment of high lamas.
    The 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen being as a reincarnation of his own grandfather, the 35th Sakya Trizin Tashi Rinchen. Interesting stories told as how he was born and the special link with the Sakya Trizins. Dragshul Trinley Rinchen was more of a hermit lama, and incredibly having visions of both Tara and Vajrayogini.
    Recording to the Sakya throne holders the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden indeed definitively is Avalokiteshvara. Six of them are confirmed to have practiced Dorje Shugden. And even composed prayers, pujas , propagated and promoted Dorje Shugden within the sacred Sakya lineage. Chapels been built too as such they cannot be wrong in their practice and a very research evidence had also confirmed it too. Interesting read …biography of a Great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this interesting sharing.

    Thank you for you thoughtful sharing of providing natural relief of those who are suffering from migraine. To my experience migraine is a chronic illness because I have suffered from them. Most people assume that the migraine was triggered by one single item but
    to me it’s due to a combination of factors.

    I think this article will be so much helpful for many who is looking for solution to prevent and cure this chronic illness.

    Hope this natural remedies will benefits many to explore a new treatment and prevent them from taking magic pills for fast relief.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this well research article on Sakya lineage connection with Dorje Shugden . The Sakya Lineage and Dorje Shugden has a long related history over hundred years ago. Wow……six out of the 42 supreme Sakya throne holders, six of the throne holders had indeed practiced Dorje Shugden. And even the 31st and 37th Sakya Trizin, two of the throne were recognised to be the incarnations of Dorje Shugden. They even built chapels and composed prayer texts to Dorje Shugden. It has proven that not only Gelug lineage did propitiate Dorje Shugden but also Sakya lineage. Sakya Lamas had practiced Dorje Shugden even long before the Gelug lamas. Dorje Shugden had been practiced by so many masters and lamas from various schools of Buddhism . Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Hence these practice is not a minor practice after all. It has again proven that Dorje Shugden is a beneficial practice and not the evil practice as claimed by CTA.
    Interesting read.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. It is very true our human perception toward a point of view like what is right or wrong there is always a mistake or I should said in most time is wrong or is not bringing any benefits to us.
    All our problems arise from the mind. So to solve them, we need to work on the mind. Hence, no martial arts can be greater than spirituality. Thank you very much for sharing this profound story with us.

    I feel so blessed for learning something from this article. Thank you so much for your thoughtful sharing. I truly understand the possess power to change our lives during our falls was actually a good sign. I gained some positive energy and felt was extremely incredible!

    There are highs and lows in any journey, however if life is more down than up, then it’s time to question why, I had a great teaching from this sharing.

    I totally agree that the lows should be appreciated and enjoyed, because its from the lows that experience the highs. Living our life with positivity so that we can continue to improve and achieve what we desire.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
