    KH study groups and centres are the manifestation of Rinpoche’s kindness so that those living remote from our mother centre will have equal opportunity to connect with him and the organisation and a place to engage in practice.
    The success of all the study groups depend not only on its core members and sponsors, but also the blessings of our Lama and kind support from our hardworking KH Liaisons & members who collectively provide the link to our mother centre by going there regularly to share.

    Kechara’s presence is felt everywhere!
    Indeed more and more replicas of Kechara House are mushrooming everywhere in Malaysia. It reminds me of how Kechara House first started back when I first joined. We had so little to work with then and everyone spent their time and put in effort to making things happen for the group. Of course there were shortage of resources but we made do with the things that we had at hand.
    These pictures really remind me of how things were back then. I do believe the Ipoh study group are going through the same situation. I rejoice for the efforts which Mr Ngeow and other from the commitee members who go there to help them every week and establish a good connection with the mother temple here.
    I sincerely pray that the Ipoh Study group will grow further to be a beneficial place for everyone to congregate and learn the Dharma.

    Dr Chong and Dr Ming who are devoted students of Tsem Rinpoche were working in KL Hospital. Dr. Ming was the ex treasurer of Kechara Organization. She was a very active member in the centre and also is one of the teachers in the kids class. When her husband Dr. Chong was offered a job in Ipoh they have to move to Ipoh. And that was when they decide to organize and start a centre for the people in Ipoh. Ipoh study group was born with Mr. Ngeow going down to Ipoh fortnightly, to give Dharma talk and assisted by Dr.Chong and Wai Meng from KL. Jace and Miss Han, Raymond Chu, Eric Chong travel fortnightly to Ipoh to teach mandala offering and Protector Setrap puja.

    It was so happy to see a group of like minded friends get together and sharing dharma.Setrap practice benefited many Kecharian and we all know Setrap will help us if we practice sincerely.
    I am one of them.
    Jace, Raymond, Raymond’s lovely wife and kids, Dino, Mr Ngeow, Yee Mun ,they shared whatever they know about setrap practice to benefit others.Jace is a lovely lady,she is hardworking and whenever i meet her in KH ,she is always happy and helpful.I knew she have so much faith with Setrap.She is the asistant umze of Chinese setrap group.During the on going setrap retreat,i joined the chinese setrap puja group on the 3rd day,she was there early to do the set up and get the offering ready.
    She even do hundreds of prostration early in the morning daily during the retreat.
    Study group is a way to make Dharma grow within us.Just like what Rinpoche said,WHEN WE PRACTICE DHARMA TOGETHER ,WE GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER WELL.WE KNOW WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE HAVE PROBLEM,WE LEARN TO CARE ,TO LOVE AND PRAY TO SETRAP TO HELP EVERYONE.
    Slowly we learn how to be selfless and abondon selfishness.

    Many more people in Malaysia is getting Dharma and getting the benefits. Dharma is not something separate from your worldly life; it can be and is intertwined in life. It is basically learning how to cope, solve and rise about your sufferings and problems. Some people may like studying, some chanting, some organizing events, some paint, some dance and some sing. It is all Dharma when we do it from a motivation that is about others! Yes perhaps in the beginning it is about us, solve our problem Setrap, help me Setrap… but after you got what you wanted, it is time to give back and share the benefit you got with others. This is what’s happening in Ipoh, JB and Melaka. This means more people can get a chance to change their lives for the better. Kudos to those like Mr. Ngeow and the education team for spearheading the vision of spreading Dharma through the 10 directions. And one day soon, we will have KWPC http://www.kechara.com/peace-centre/ where we can all come together to do practice. So if you want be part of this history in the making and be part of a legacy you can be proud of, you start now by doing whatever you can best!

    Kechara House is growing in Malaysia, Ipoh is one of its satelitte centers and I have been told that its members have a good dedication to the Dharma.
    When someone or a group of people has dedication, sincerity and correct motivation in the practice of Dharma, Dharmapala Setrap can only help. Why> because his help carries meaning and purpose.
    I don’t think we need a Dharma protector to fuel our delusions and get further into our attachements, desires and aversions, I think we are doing a very good job at this by ourselves, we are kind of experts at it. But when it comes to practicing the Dharma, a Dharma protector is definitely of great assistance, as the road may not always be without turbulences.

  7. chia on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:25 am

    Study group play important role for dharma to flourish in one place. I am Happy to see the sincerity of group the people at Ipoh has put their effect together make this place happen provide the chapel for more people at Ipoh come and learning dharma.
    Is nice our dharma teacher Mr. Ngoew regularly went up to Ipoh every month to share dharma knowledge with the new members. Chinese Setrap group members lead by Ms Han, Jace and Raymond Chu family also went together to support Ipoh Study Group first Chinese Setrap pujas . Jace Chong is very kind showing newbies how to make the mudra of mandala offering .Kecharian always selfless go out their way to share dharma with others. How nice!

  8. weeliang on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:37 am

    Dearest Mr. Ngeow,
    Your wisdom, strength, dedication and tenacity to teach the dharma at all the study groups throughout the nation is truly admirable. You have shown much generosity with your time, love and MONEY to Kechara house and all of us here. I have really gained much knowledge on dharma from you. You are the greatest of teachers because of your sincerity to dharma and all us practitioners. May Buddha bless you with infinite strength, good health, long life and hopefully, your hair back!! Haha. Lastly and most importantly, thank you for being patient with me and imparting to me your wisdom to me with such grace and generosity. 
    With folded hands and dedication of all my prayers,
    Wee Liang

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    Dharma Cell Groups are an investment…
    Investment of patience, time, resources and most of all Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings
    By the leadership of Rinpoche who has proven Himself all these years that it is not only possible to do all of that but most of all it effects a self transformation, moulding a Bodhisattva within…
    I still recall how back in school, in helping out the advisor to the Christian fellowship group, it is certainly no easy task, lots of patience and cajoling, group dynamics and so forth…and further more we were all young and with limited resources…yet it was the brotherhood of faith that kept the group together…
    I am so glad that this Ipoh Group had taken great strides in providing an avenue for Dharma, especially Rinpoche’s teachings and the cause of Kechara to be further advanced for the benefit of all, even up north in Ipoh…Sadhu!

  10. Elaine Cheah on Jul 8, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Ipoh is a delightful, sleepy hollow about 2 hours north of KL, where food is cheap and good. Ipoh is famous for its pomelos, “white coffee”, fat crunchy bean sprouts and char kuey teow, charcoal fired toast with butter and kaya among other things, real good local stuff. In the past few years, this famous Ipoh hawker fare is being duplicated and offered in up-market malls in KL through the kopitiams. Try as they may, it’s nothing like the real deal. One fond memory I have of my dad is when I was little, he suddenly said one day, “Let’s drive up to Ipoh for lunch”. So we just dropped everything and journeyed to Ipoh, savoured the delicious food there and came back. Those were the days when there was no car air-con nor was there any need for one as I swear temperatures were a lot cooler and cleaner than today and we only had trunk roads up north, not the highways of today. So we bumped around in Dad’s old trusty Sunbeam and lunch became a whole day affair. So Ipoh food is worth driving all the way there.
    I remember having been to the Ipoh Study Group twice in the past to conduct pujas, the first being opening day where we invited Lama Tsongkhapa and the other, a regular cell group meeting. The members of the group are very warm people, unpretentious and sincere in wanting to learn. Even when most of the people had a Chinese Mahayana or Taoist background and Tsongkhapa was a foreign word, they were open to make offerings and participate in the pujas, showing they have tremendous respect for deities.
    It’s wonderful to see Kechara members from the mother ship going all out to support and nurture the group. Better still, to be part of the group that does that. I find that volunteering in dharma work is fulfilling and I derive a lot of happiness in being able to do my part, albeit small. To know that people in another part of town now know how to do the pujas, continue doing them at home and at the centre, benefitting themselves and those for whom they dedicate the merits, makes the very small sacrifice I made all the more worthwhile. End result is, they grow and I grow too.

    The Ipoh Study Group has grown since it opened more than a year ago. I attended the opening with several Kechara friends. We went in Alex Tan’s car together with Su Ming, May Woo and a few other KH members. Wai Meng, who is from Ipoh, also came along but he went in his own car. Alex Tan’s car, a Toyota Alphard is big and the statue of Lama Tsongkhapa fitted nicely at the back. On arrival, Dr Chong was there to invite Lama Tsongkhapa in and we all followed, carrying offerings etc. Then we set up the altar. Everybody helped. I remember meeting KH members who are from Ipoh: Lily, May Ong, Eric and their families. When the altar was ready, we had a puja. Elaine Cheah was the umze. After that we all had lunch before going back to Kuala Lumpur.

  13. Yokefui on Jul 7, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Certain events do seem coincidental –
    1) Dr Chong and family moved to Ipoh and wished to start a study group there to spread the Lamrim but could not get a suitable premise
    2) Ngeow happened to have a friend whose shoplot had been left vacant for years and he offered to KH free
    However, the 2 events are not totally coincidental because :
    1) Dr Chong wanted to start study group in Ipoh after he had experienced the benefits of Lamrim so the cause was created by having Lamrim classes in KH
    2) Ngeow’s friend was touched by Rinpoche’s sincerity to spread Tsongkhapa lineage and inspired by the rapid growth of the Organisation so cause for him to sponsor the premise was created through results shown by KH’s Spiritual Guide and members.
    Rinpoche always reminds us to practice purely and sincerely, with this in mind our actions will affect people around us and they will want to help and get involved. That ‘s how KWPC will manifest … by first developing the inner KWPC in us.

  14. May Ong on Jul 6, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    Ipoh Study Group has come a long way since 2009 when I attended its opening. Being born in Ipoh originally, I am happy that Mr Ngeow and Wai Meng brought the teachings and Lord Setrap’s practice there to benefit the students.
    There may be many Buddhists in the world but not many understands what Lord Setrap stands for or how he can help us to clear our daily unforeseen OBSTACLES we are likely to come across. Happenings or coincidences we encounter may be viewed as accidental but are they? Are they causes we may have created for ourselves in our own previous actions or karma?
    What Goes Round Do Come Around …

  15. Jace Chong on Jul 6, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I am glad that I joined the troops and go Ipoh to promote Setrap, and thanks to Mr.Ngeow for giving such a details explaination about Setrap.
    I told Wai Meng that when Setrap puja starts, the cell group will grow bigger here. Just like how Chinese Setrap Puja started in KH and brought a lot of Chinese educated members in.
    I don’t know much and not a good student that has deep knowledge about Buddhism, but I share what I understand and what I apply to my daily life. It’s hard for me explain the reason why I like Setrap so much, I feel there’s something that made me connect to Him, I attend Setrap Puja every weeks since it started, I will come no matter what obstacles I had.
    I rejoice that with Setrap’s helps, a lot of people overcome their obstacles and difficulties. I always say “thank you” to Setrap when I feel He is around me.
    Sometimes I feel Setrap is like my uncle that takes care of me very closely (sorry ya Setrap), so in system barter, I would like to help Him back by introducing Him to as many people as possible, become “Setrap Promoter” =)

    Mr Ngeow, head of the education committee of Kechara House together with its committee such as Wai Meng, Thierry, Susan, Paris, has been slowly nurturing the Ipoh cell Group, giving dharma talks and introducing many practises such as Setrap. Beside Ipoh Cell Group, we also have devotees down in Melaka and even at JB. It is not easy for people to come to KL from Ipoh, Melaka or JB every week to attend our dharma classes, so what do we do? We bring the dharma to their door steps. Nothing can stop Kecharians from spreading the Dharma as sharing dharma knowledge is considered one of the highest offerings. And even though we do not officially have a Penang cell group, patsy our Kechara Paradise outlet manager there has already started a regular Setrap puja every week. Not just that, she is also leading a few volunteers to distribute food weekly to the homeless in Penang. There is no limit in our job scope. That is the spirit in Kechara!

  17. Albert on Jul 5, 2010 at 9:01 am

    Kechara has started the first department 10 years ago, during that time, it is so much difficult to spread dharma teaching as because we are lacking of people to work with us, until today, we have growth to 13 departments and not only that, there are more and more people know about us and start walking into their spiritual journey, even people from outstation also wanted to enter into spiritual journey, but it is not easy for them to come KL every week, therefore we had set up study group in few places out of Klang Valley. So that the people who not able to come to KL, they can gather together to study and to do their prayers, Mr Ngeow and Wai Meng has been tirelessly going from 1 place to another to conduct dharma class, and certain trip, we have a lot of sincere volunteer to go help explain to the locals of how to make offerings and the correct way to do prayers.
    It’s really a joyous thing to see the dharma growth as this can really benefit a lot of people.

  18. Ooi Pe on Jul 5, 2010 at 1:24 am

    Wai Meng and sifu Mr Ngeow have been tireless in their trips up north to visit our Ipoh Cell Group friends, to conduct dharma classes and connect with them. Thanks also to many other friends and supporters who went to join them. If Mohd cannot come to the mountain, the mountain will go to him.
    The group is expanding under the guidance of many people – Dr Chong, Dr Ming, Wai Meng, Mr Ngeow, Eric Choong to name but a few. I admire them for their untiring involvement with the group. They have truly brought dharma to these people who in turn have brought more friends into dharma.

  19. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    Good work done and thumbs up for Ngeow, Wai Meng, Eric Choong, Dr Chong, Dr Ming and others who have nurtured the Ipoh Cell Group. We can see that the Ipoh Cell Group is expanding nicely. Ipoh people are getting Dharma education and they are like a big family now. They are enthusiastic and they come down to Kechara House for events and keep tap on things happening here. May Setrap bestow lots of lots of love and blessing on Ipoh Cell Group. May they all grow with wisdom and compassion. May they achieve enlightenment quickly.

  20. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 4, 2010 at 7:57 am

    Thank you Ms Han for inviting Raymong Chu and Jace too. Many thanks to Jace, Raymond, Raymond’s lovely wife and kids, Dino, Mr Ngeow, Yee Mun and the participants of the Chinese Setrap Session to make it happen. Hope we can have a regular puja session pretty soon. Setrap’s practice will be so beneficial for the people in Ipoh and anywhere else in samsara.
    Doing this enlightened Dharmapala’s practice removes much obstacles that can hinder us from doing real spiritual practice. Typically one receives protector practice after one has a firm grounding in the Lamrim. Due to Rinpoche’s kindness and foresight we have access to such practices even though we are so mundane. Due to this degenerate age – Kaliyuga and the countless delusions and distractions beings have these days, protector practice can really benefit beings with very low merit. Rinpoche is well known to be able to benefit beings of low merits throughout out his line of incarnations. I rejoice in Rinpoche’s actions and deeds in allowing Kecharians to practice protector practices.

  21. Han on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:10 am

    I personally realise the benefits of attending Setrap Puja since 2006. I had the merit to meet Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in on of the KH event and remebered that night Rinpoche’s teaching was about Lord Setrap. I beleive that through Setrap’s blessings, i gain faith in the Dharma and understand dharma more in depth.
    KH weekly Setrap Puja is one of the activity i seldom want to miss.Through the weekly puja, i came across many stories of how Setrap has helped. Eg, there are couples that always querrel and family not in peace, after attended few sessions of setrap puja with sincere motivation, the couple shared with me that they has less arguement and has PEACE OF MIND.
    I also very happy to know that after they experienced Setrap help and benefits, they start to get involve, to volunteer, to sponsor…in KH. Not only that, they also encourage the friends to join our weekly setrap puja.
    Want to learn about Setrap and engage in his practice. You may join KH coming Setrap retreat, starts from 6th July, for more information, please log on to

  22. Shirley Tan on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:15 am

    Wow, I am really blown away by how far and wide our Kecharians will go to in order to spread the Dharma. In this case, it is helping so many people who otherwise may not have even heard of the words: Dharma and Setrap. As David explained so clearly, Setrap is immensely beneficial to everyone for numerous things. You can check out all the different stories of how Lord Setrap has helped and saved lives in the website that David has posted in his comments. Or better yet, go get yourself a Setrap Box Set and start right away!

  23. David Lai on Jul 3, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Setrap is such a wonderful practice to share openly to others. Setrap is the emanation of Amitabha Buddha and all Chinese revere and love Amitabha Buddha. Hence you will see lots of Namo Amitabha car stickers running around town here in Kuala Lumpur.
    But the best part of Setrap is that he is extremely beneficial to alleviate health, wealth and all manner of problems. We have heard so many times that Setrap has helped many people gain jobs, protected them from accidents, spirits and financial problems. What’s amazing is that through Setrap’s blessings, many people gain faith in the Dharma. They come, join our activities and study the Lamrim via Rinpoche’s incredible teachings. They eventually gain the real protection through these teachings.
    KH is coming up with a Setrap retreat so do come and learn about Setrap and engage in his practice. Check out this link for more info:-

  24. Paris on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    by the way, if anyone else would like to go to any of these study groups to visit, please get in touch with Mr Ngeow (head of the education committee) or any of the liaisons and we’ll arrange to go together when we’re next heading down. Share the love!!!

  25. Paris on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    These visits to the study groups around the country is something that all the liaisons are doing every month – we take turns to go down to visit the other branches as a way of connecting to our “satellites” and get to know the people there better. It’s nice to see how the family is growing and even more so when the study groups in turn, come up to KL for events up at the main centre too 🙂

  26. han on Jul 3, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Not only puja benefits the group, the dharma talk by Mr Ngeow or Eric Choong regularly do make the different to them too. May we all nurture the group and spread the dharma in Ipoh wide.

  27. yyk on Jul 2, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Ya, another “dharma family” growing up, happy to see it:)

  28. May Ong on Jun 29, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    Thank you for bringing setrap puja to benefit the Ipoh study group

  29. Peter on Jun 28, 2010 at 11:29 pm

    And the ‘family’ grows and expands…’ sadhu!

    I believe that all animals are just like humans. This includes anything from feelings to suffering with pain. As such, it should be the moral obligation of human beings to take this fact into account whenever they consider taking actions that would interfere with the needs of animals.

    Animals and humans both in common have great power and they able to achieve great things. We should find ways to control fear towards animals and prevent anxiety from taking hold.

    Thanking you for your thoughtfullness sharing and being kind to animals.

    Wow…..great biography of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, who wrote the Liberation in the Palm of your hand or Lamrim known to many of us. He was definitely a bodhisattva and one of the greatest masters of the 20th century and one the most influential teachers in Tibet. Well respected by hundred thousands of people, many have learn and benefit from his Dharma teachings. Incredible he had a very powerful voice that everyone could hear him clearly in the crowd, even those seated behind.

    Reading this article on Lama Zopa’s view on Dorje Shugden practice gives us a clear understanding . Lama Zopa Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist scholar and meditator . He is a Gelugpa lineage holder, having received teachings from many of the great Gelugpa masters. He gave a very good advice for students on Dorje Shugden practice. Guru devotion is the key to gaining spiritual attainments. Lama Zopa did mentioned that once we have made a Dharma connection with our Guru, we cannot simply give up this relationship unless the Guru told us to give up. Well regardless of whether a lama practises Dorje Shugden or not, we need to apply the rule, is the practice of Guru Devotion for sure. Letting whatever be nor matter what instance, we should not speak negatively against Dorje Shugden or about other Gurus. A good advice and profound teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Choong for this interesting sharing.

    In life we will be facing lots of negative things from others. never mind right or wrong, true or false, I must learn how to take it or see it as a positive steps for our personal improvement and growth.

    The 7 great methods in above are not just to cope with insult but advise, comment & opinion from others toward ourselves. Insults and criticism follow us everywhere, so learn with great patience to use them as a guide to self improvement .

    His writing style is clear and direct, added with his personal experiences, thoughts and direct realizations at that point of time. I am fond of reading those past masters’ writings as opposed to the modern ones.
    John Blofeld spiritual journey and his affinity so strong in Buddhism are really showed that he had a very strong connection to Buddhism in his previous life.Thank you very much for sharing this article.

    Revisit this post again. Thank you Valencia for this vast post of Loed Tsongkhapa’s life story and his achievements . Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition and as an enlightened being, having the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. He was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani , hence his practice is so powerful and beneficial. We have to thank our Lama Tsem Rinpoche for bringing this practice to Malaysia. Many great gurus, lamas and teachers has been teaching this very powerful, yet accessible practice across the globe. We are very fortunate and blessed to practice all the teachings. As for me I am still learning ,reading this post had strengthen my belief. Love reciting Migtsema as its very beneficial indeed. Interesting read very profound Lama Tsongkhapa biography.
    Thanks again .

    Interesting as Tsem Rinpoche called it as BIZARRE beings. Well I have not heard of some the names such as chupacabra, Ebu Gogo, Springheel Jack and so forth. Spring-heeled Jack is an entity in English folklore of the Victorian era. Wow ….sound interesting. For decades, Spring-heeled Jack name was equated with the bogeyman. Its as a means of scaring people as some said he was demon who would leap up unnaturally high. Another interesting bizarre beings is shadow people who is a shadowy spiritual beings long been a staple of folklore. Stories of these supernatural entities have spanned centuries and cultures. They are some of the most mysterious entities in the known universe. As reported those who saw the shadowy intruders were scare to death as if they had died in their sleep. The Beast of Bray Road is another scary creature of Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Its a hairy humanoid with canine features standing on two legs and can resemble a bear. All those cryptozoological creatures mentioned in this article were indeed real or just folklore. Whether they do exist in this century , no one be sure. But definitely they do decades ago as recorded. There are many unknown out in the universe.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    No words can describe of us losing our Lama and enlightened Guru, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche. I was deeply saddened to hear about the death of our Lama as just a moment ago last July , we had an audience and met our Lama , which indeed my very first time . Even though its just moment to me its like a long moment which I remembered each and every words of encouragement our Lama told me. Our Lama was such a kind, generous, compassionate gentle soul whom he would do anything to help improve our lives and had made a difference in my life and so many lives. Where lives pass, memories carry on forever. I will cherish the great memories I have with our Lama.
    Throughout Rinpoche’s life, his was a voice for the millions of people. The Parinirvana of H.E. Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche, the world has lost a great Lama, whose steadfast and unflinching determination played a key role in trying to secure the lifting of Dorje Shugden’s ban. Tsem Rinpoche was known for his great compassion, tremendous generosity and extraordinary thoughtfulness. Everything Tsem Rinpoche did was merely to benefit others. May Tsem Rinpoche have a swift reincarnation .
    We will always hold our Lama close in our thoughts.
    Thank you writers team for this wonderful sharing. … beautiful pictures paints a thousand words.

    Glenn Mullin is a world well known Buddhist author, translator, scholar, speaker, lecturer and teacher. He is the author of many books on Tibetan Buddhism, many of which have been translated into a dozen foreign languages. Many of these focus on the lives and works of the early Dalai Lamas. In one of his book A Sacred Legacy of Reincarnation of the Fourteen Dalai Lamas he mentioned that Dorje Shugden was a pervasive practice spreading among the Gelugpa tradition for hundred of years. Many highly attained lamas had been relying on Dorje Shugden and the practice been passed down to thousands in the Gelugpa world. It is not a minor practice after all and in fact Dorje Shugden is a major practice in the world as in history has been proved that the practice is beneficial. Religious freedom should be allow for one who choose what one would pray to. But due to the restriction by the Tibetan leadership , the practice been ban. Politics should not have interfere with religion. May the ban be over soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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.
    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

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

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together!
