Recently, we found a published article about the plight of Pertubuhan Kesihatan dan Kebajikan Umum Malaysia (PKKUM), an NGO that looks after the welfare of marginalised communities within the area of Jalan Raja Laut in Kuala Lumpur. The beneficiaries comprise mostly of homeless people, B40s, people with disabilities, the Asnaf community and others.
At Free Food Society, we stand for providing food to people in need regardless of race, religion or nationality and we found that PKKUM’s objectives lay very close to our heart. Thus, we took the opportunity to collaborate with them in doing what we do best. We met the NGO’s President, Ms Elisha Kor Krishnan, and offered to help them by providing one meal a week for a total of 300 people for a period of 4 weeks.
The first batch of lunch packs were delivered on 25th October 2022 by our Vice President, Datin Tina Ali, assisted by Ms Elisha and her volunteers. We are so blessed to have come across the article and very grateful to be able to give a little help to the community in the ways that we can.
