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

Jul 23, 2010 | Views: 464

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.

    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.

    Very clear precious teachings for us to practice this powerful Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Been explained in a clearly and creative way so everyone of us could understand and put into practice. The correct way to visualize plays an important part in our prayers. We are truly fortunate to have this powerful practice so as to transform our mind and lives meaningfully. It is very beneficial for us to do Guru Yoga prayer in daily Sadhana with the correct visualization. It can help us to calm our mind, good memory, less stressful and so forth. We gain clarity, we gain sharpness of the mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teachings.

    Well said in Dharma the-battle-is-a-good-sign by Rinpoche. A profound teachings in this post. We have to accept , be true to ourselves , never blame others for our failure. In life whatever it is there is no short cut we have to learn from the hard way. We learn through mistakes to gain knowledge what is right or wrong. Hence our teacher taught us in away so as we could learn something new. Learning, practicing Dharma and putting into action is the best choice. Instead of running away, we should take more responsibilities, do more Dharma, engage in more Dharma, nor matter what happened. At the end of the day, we gain knowledge, merits, nothing to lose where we could benefits others. Our wisdom, clear mind is arising, our mind becoming better and seeing things better in long run. We are fortunate having Rinpoche giving us precious teachings on line. It has since benefitted many people around the world.
    Meaningful quotes by Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo , well explained by Rinpoche for us all to have a good thought.
    Only we ourselves can change our mindset and situation , not to blame others to make the change.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    Very precious teachings indeed, reading it again to refresh myself . A teaching of how our mind works and determines our next reincarnation after our death in this current life . Great teachings relating to the mind as been explained for us to understand better. To achieve real happiness , we have to clear obstacles, delusions in our minds. By doing Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice in our prayers help us to transform our minds. Choosing to learn Dharma , practice and putting into actions has benefited many more across the world from Rinpoche’s teachings online. Learning as much Dharma as we could to transform our body, our speech, our mind . Whatever we do to transform our mind we create becomes a source of happiness.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this powerful precious teachings.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing. I was quite insightful has I get to know more about shadow people.

    I guess one should have a strong will to face challenges given by such people. However we should also have faith in God and follow our spiritual practices diligently, as it helps to protect ourselves.

    Thank you Rinpoche and team for working tireless coming up with these fantastic videos, where we could learn, practice from there. All these videos are Dharma teachings, so that people from all around the world can learn and practice. Very beneficial practice simple and quite details. More people get to understand about Dorje Shugden, other Dharma teachings and all misconceptions about Dorje Shugden true nature. A good platform for people to learn Dharma teachings. It has brought tremendous benefit to many people around the world. I am one of them ,listening to all Rinpoche ‘s videos, reading to have more knowledge and learning and practicing from scratch.

    Having a good quality correct images of the various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas is hard to find those days. But now Kechara had produced beautiful high-resolution images for us to print out for our home. It’s a blessing have a print out images of Buddha in our home. Looking through these images is amazing, simply beautiful having us get connected to them
    Thank you Rinpoche and team for the effort…..with much appreciation.

    Mr.Shenpenn Khymsar a diehard activist known for speaking the truth without the shroud of diplomacy . Shenpenn Khymsar has travelled around the globe in search of his fellow Tibetan refugees and has documented their emotional and political struggles. He is a self taught musician, a filmmaker and a creative, modern Tibetan man who spoke so eloquently and openly. His words embodying the pride, courage and integrity as much as the wisdom and compassion . All about the on-going troubles his fellow Tibetan refugees were facing. He even has documented their emotional and political struggles. He is speaking up being a Tibetan and for the Tibetan cause hoping that more Tibetans understand more things and see into more things. That’s wonderful and a good choice he has made. As a responsible Tibetan citizen he just has to tell the truth. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    In Mahayana Buddhism, Manjusri is the bodhisattva of wisdom and is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana art and literature. Manjushri the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand. In Tibetan tradition, this mantra is believed to enhance wisdom and improve one’s skills in debating, memory, writing, and other literary abilities. Manjushri practice can be used to help us with our memory—it can be used to help us gain and remember information. It can also be used to helps us develop our wisdom. All the buddhas have the same realization. It’s not that Manjushri has more wisdom than all the other Buddhas and less compassion ,they all have the same realizations. It’s just that Manjushri’s specialty is wisdom, and he’s the manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Generosity and kindness are never wasted. No act of kindness and giving no matter how small, is ever wasted we do or give out happily. A random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on someone else’s life. Always find opportunities to make someone smile, and to offer random acts of kindness in everyday life. Our actions will lightens the burdens of another. There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed .Practicing generosity is an antidote not only to basic selfishness. It tests our trust in abundance. It tests our ability to empathize with others. It takes time to practice generosity, but being generous is the best use of our time. Nor what ever happened it is between us and the recipient . As long as we have a good motivation and accept nothing in return.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Rich people tend to be stable, flexible, able to make independent decisions, and more focused on themselves than others. They tend to understand the difference between value and price. They’re often selectively frugal. They spend money on things that bring value to their lives. Doing what they like with the money they have but not the poor whom they work hard to save what they want. The rich are likely to both have greater motivation and opportunities to engage in bribery and fraud. When they are rich, corruption comes in for some as such to lobby government for favourable policies in some cases. They could then translate their financial power into political power . While the richest continue to enjoy booming fortunes I do hope they could do more in helping the poor and do more charity work. Rich people when see an opportunity in every situation and work to explore it while the poor people focus on problems in their daily lives. Interesting survey .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    People who suffer from depression often report feelings of loneliness and isolation. No matter what we are going through, we still have to face it. Everyone of us has a secret sorrows which the world knows not. Learning is the only thing for us, focus on what lies ahead of us than holding on. Learning in our daily lives never stop. Accept ourselves, love ourselves and keep moving forward. Have the courage to lift up failure and pursue with hard work and determinations. Keep an open mind and perspective with friends who cares. Great teachings from this profound post.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

    The frilled shark is a strange, prehistoric-looking shark that lives in the open ocean and spends much of its time in deep, dark waters. They are an uncommon primitive shark species typically found near the sea floor. Well those frilled sharks look a bit like underwater snakes. Looking terrifying, jagged faced appearance,especially their mouth and having long, smooth bodies that can coil and contort in a serpentine way. They live in the darkest depths of the ocean and is rarely seen by humans. They’ve existed for millions of years, but they’re so rare . The frilled shark is one of the only surviving species in its particular shark family. It can still be found throughout the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. These mysterious creatures were discovered in the 18th centuries by a German scientist in Japan. What more is beneath the ocean yet to be discovered. Interesting .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this amazing sharing

    Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) a place of refuge and healing located at Bentong, Pahang. The land with healing and positive energies suits those wanted to get away from the busy city. The naturally-positive energies of a green environment. With the land been consecrated by high lamas, monks and Dorje Shugden while in trance of the Panglung Oracle with powerful pujas. Having a Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain built at KFR is wonderful , which benefited many locals and tourist visiting KFR. The Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain in KFR where the water itself has already been blessed by the energies of Medicine Buddha. Hence simply drinking this water has a tremendous healing effect. HE Gangchen Rinpoche, an emanation of Medicine Buddha had blessed the semi-precious stones, placed at the fountain. It was then consecrated by Dorje Shugden, H H Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche a living emanation of Vajrayogini, and our Lama Tsem Rinpoche as well.
    Than you Rinpoche with folded hands

    The House of Shambhala is a Tibetan-style hotel located in a quiet alley of the famous Barkhor in the centre of Lhasa, Tibet. This hotel is a restored home of a high ranking Tibetan Lama has its doors open to locals and tourists visiting Lhasa. This typical Tibetan courtyard hotel provide guests with the utmost comfort while surrounded by Tibetan history and tradition. That’s wonderful for anyone as the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple are within easy reach. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells all as one could see there are traditional style of natural wood rooms. With the specifications like high quality furnishings, neatly decorations, and so forth in it features. It has to offer a personal touch to everyone staying there as it hold historical or cultural significance of the place, the unique experience for them. Perfect atmospheric oasis in Lhasa.

    Great message …. Rinpoche thanks for this sharing. May more people going on vegetarian to stop the sufferings of animals who has no voice of their voice, and cannot speak for themselves. Not to mention millions of animals are been slaughtered every day, ended on dinner’s tables. There’s no doubt that vegetarian diets are good for our health. Research shows that people on balanced plant-based diet are consistently slimmer and healthier than meat eaters. They also have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes. Vegetarians happen have a healthier BMI, controlled blood pressure and low cholesterol levels as well.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great message. It has opened up our eyes and we have to go on vegetarian for a healthy life . For most not to ignore the sufferings of animals .

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.
    4 yearss ago
    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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
