Uncle Kang, 62 year grew up as an adopted child given away as an unwanted baby which is quite common those days. He himself did not marry and his adopted relatives were all reluctant to take care of him hence there will be no contacts in between. 
His problem escalated to another level when he is no longer able to command a job and when he already suffering effects of an old injury from a fall. We came across of Uncle Kang and referred him to a shelter home in Bandar Pemaisuri. It is a wise choice for him to be choosing a comfy bed over the stressful environment on the streets.

Devi completed 4 singles this week.  She was disappointed because she couldn't make more due to machine problem.  We managed to solve the problem and she asked to collect another 4 more come Monday. Such an inspiration for other sewing club members. 😍 #empowerment

The proud Robiah showing off her works and earnings for the week. She did 2 king sizes in a week which is massive improvement. She has always been very particular with her work and that most often cost her delays but her workmanship has always been consistent, so it is really some good news when she complete two kings under a week. She make it a point to redo if she is not satisfied with the lines and stiching. We are so happy for you Robiah!

This two ladies found themselves homeless for their very own reasons. They actually got to know each other when they became homeless around the same area. Heart wrenching to see them carrying an infant along with them and make the streets their home. The father of this baby had already left the mother that caused her to be evicted also.

We have actually got to know of this case a year back. When our team went to approach them it seems to us that they just won't want to cooperate or simply couldn't comprehend. It turned out to be they couldn't understand what we were trying to offer and weren't too confident if what we had proposed to them will work out for them. More over we also noticed there were quite a lot of uncertatinties.

Having met them before and often indecisive on offers tabled (which is staying in a shelter while the toddler definitely needs to be chekced by doctors with some sort of a treatment for suspected cerebral palsy) things just didn't get going. Guess the amount of trust needed is bigger than we could offered till a good Samaritan Neela Kathirtchelvan contacted Justin Cheah referring this case to Kechara. 
Kudos to Neela however who managed to convinced them to going into a shelter who is willing to help them. We sent them along with their pool of stuffs collected from other good hearted people to a shelter on Friday for permanent stay till they can find one. Really hope they will settle down nicely and we are glad that they are now off the streets!

My weekend started off to a flyer with a 24 hour trip to #JohorBahru participating in our surplus food distribution to PPR Flats in Kempas held every week. We had honour to receive Deputy Minister of Home Ministry YB Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed who is the MP of Pulai constituency joining us distributing these food items from Tesco Malaysia that were meant to be thrown into the bins if not collected. 
Wonderful to have friends from Tesco who were also present to present flyers to the community providing employment opportunity to those who  are on a look out for employment. Mc Donald's will also be holding such booths in our future distributions to help reach to the poor who might have difficulty finding opportunities.

This is the fourth time we are doing this in PPR Kempas switching blocks every week and we look forward doing similar distributions in other flats and villages in Johor Bahru on a rotation basis. As much as we want to do more, our activity 100% depends on the commitment of volunteers. We will together do the best for the people who we will be benefiting. 
Thank you Tesco and to all volunteers for their dedication and commitment in helping to rescue these food items for the poor especially to Merlin Hoo who is the lead person behind the operation down south. Of course not forgetting her consistent team behind taking care of logistics and communications. 
The team later adjourned to a simple appreciation hi-tea at the invitation of Datuk Nur Jazlan to the volunteers commitment in helping the poor in his area. I am very elated that there will be some very positive news to be announced soon regarding our general food bank operations in Johor. Exciting!

We helped to replace En Hussin's lost MYKAD today. He works as a part timer for a mover's company. He earns his daily pay and uses most of it to pay RM20 for accommodation in the daily hotel per night. The 30 year old man is married with one young daughter and the wife takes care of her while Hussin goes to work. It is difficult to do things if one goes around without a Mykad especially when Hussin needs it to find a permanent job.

An update on the young couple whom we helped to take temporary shelter in Anjung Singgah YKN Johor on Saturday. We arranged the husband father to go for a job interview with Tesco Malaysia and good news is that he was accepted to start work tomorrow. Meanwhile we also shifted the family over to another shelter which is nearer to the Tesco outlet that he is going to start work. The wife mother will be taking care of their young daughter while the husband father can concentrate on his new job. Special thanks to Francis and Gie Gie for helping in this case. ❤❤❤ #kechara

Mr Ragu stays in this #PPR unit with his wife and 11 children. He does not have enough to feed the family let alone a sofa set. His wife Devi is our active sewing club member and her extra income has really helped the family. Their son is 4 month into his employment with us and progressing well. 
Their situation will get better when they grown ups leaving school and start working but of course if they can progress in their studies then it will be perfect. Through our contacts, we got to know one business owner is closing down his sofa business and willing to donate off his sofa sets to the deserving poor. 
Mr Ragu's family is the first name to appear in our mind as this family have shown great initiative to help themselves to break their #poverty cycle. This sofa set donation is one of the ways our food bank programme will benefit. Reward when it is deserving.

Feels so good to be able to distribute all these surplus food to the poor rather than letting these end up into bins and eventually landfills. Thank you team for being together with me today on the ground to distribute close to 200kg of bakery, fresh vegetables and fruits to the poor in #Kempas #JohorBahru. Thank you to @Tesco for donating all these off to our food bank. ❤❤❤ #kechara

This week we distributed all the #surplusfood collected from all 7 Tesco Malaysia #Johor outlets to the urban poor in PPR Kempas. More significantly, there were 4 officers from Tesco Johor who came to interview any of them who needed employment and interested to work in Tesco. Thank you to all volunteers who helped to make this distribution a success.

This young Indian couple came to approach us with their young daughter during the distribution looking lost. According to the father, they had a disagreement with the family and subsequently left the house they were shared with the family. They just turned homeless on the same day and didn't know what to do until some of our street friends told them about us and we helped to bring them over to Anjung Singgah Johor for temporary stay. The parents seems very relieved after reaching Anjung Singgah. Glad that we are of help to them and prevented them from staying on the street.

We managed to help Mr Lim to settle into Fa Lu shelter in Kota Tinggi today. Mr Lim who is actually suffering from mild autism, was stranded on the streets in #JohorBahru recently. Through the help of Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat - JKM. Johor, he was rescued off the street and now with our help, Mr Lim will be taken care by the kind people in Fa Lu shelter. With us just now was Mr Lim senior who is now a very relieved man for his son's case has now drawn to a close.

Devi and her family have completed another two singles blankets. These were done within a week and her pace is up to producing three King sizes within a week (!) which is massive as on average one lady would only complete one require about set of blanket a week. We are so proud of her being able to progress at such speed and her workmanship is good. Let's see how this transpire, maybe we will get her to do some other more complicated designs. We will eventually help her to set up her own (if possible online) business in future. This is one way we help the urban poor to be financially independent. ❤

Robiah proudly showing off her earnings and completed blanket this afternoon. She is a single mother of 5 children and suffering from various sickness. Basically she is house bound because she will few weak and breathless for every few steps she make. So her journeys to the hospital are usually painstaking. Nevertheless she is now able to generate extra income for herself to support her school going children.

Thank you Eunice and Sara (the one holding the camera) for helping to be our #breadrunner rescuing #surplusfood from Komugi Malaysia to be redistributed to the underprivileged community on a Sunday! A total of 10kg surplus bread were delivered to Mr Ng who runs a rehabilitation center by the name of New Creation Center. 
This center is one of our partners helping some individuals (not necessarily homeless) to be rehabilitated from drug addiction, at the same time working with us to reduce flow of homeless drug abusers on the streets.

To be apart of our bread runner, kindly WhatsApp to register for participation! 010-3333260. Thank you in advance!

Photos taken from our food bank delivery activity recently. Dry provisions delivered to the needy families recently thanks to groups of volunteers who participated in this meaningful programme. We believe by lightening the burden of the families will help them in the long run. It also helps us to identify some root cause of the problems the family is currently facing and find some potential individuals we might be able to help provide training to to help their family becoming financially independent in the long run.

We helped to Zaki, 39 to return to Kota Bahru. He is a divorcee with 2 young children taken care by his sister back in his hometown. He came to KL in search of better income and life so that he can eventually bring his two children down with him once his life is stable in KL.

As he is not someone who has a good qualification, he had to work all sorts of job but he eventually found money from doing bundle sales. He was living a so called decent life. Little did he know that he would soon be diagnosed of suffering "Respiratory Squamous Pappilloma" in which tumours grow in air passage affecting his voice cord.

From March early this year, his quality of life degenerated as multiple visits and admissions in the hospital made him losing both his savings and earnings which eventually cost him his business. Down with such unfortunate situation and living on and off the streets, going back to recuperate in Kota Bahru and be with his family is the best for him at this point of time. 
We wish him best of health and get well soon.  #kechara

We distributed loads of items in bags like these away to the poor and needy families in #PPR #KotaDamansara this evening despite heavy rain with great people from Sunway Group, Hilti Malaysia as well as Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri,Koperasi & kepengunaan. They were the ones responsible for making this happen today, raising more than 2.3 tonnes of grocery items the whole of August. With great spirit of charity, together with our group of Kechara Soup Kitchen #FoodBank team, we paraded all the items downstairs of the PPR flat for those who are able to collect while those not so able, we pick up and deliver back to their houses. Nice to see all people went home happy and a BIG THANK YOU to all especially Bernard Paul Netto, Mye Lene Teo not forgetting Zatashah for all the great help in making this happen enabling us to extending to the needy. We also managed to include the surplus vegetables in the distribution list for the recipients to use immediately. #Kechara #SunwayForGood #Hilti

Sometimes, volunteers will also donate clothes.
These cages serve as a drop off point. 
The clothes are then sorted to 3 categories
a. Clothes that can be distributed to the poor
b. Clothes that can be recycled
c. Clothes that need to be disposed (Unfortunately, quite a number of clothes fall under this category :( ) (Walkthrough: 9/10)

This system was inspired by my (honeymoon) trip to Japan's Food Bank centres. He was impressed with how responsible Japanese NGOs were with their tracking and organization of food. (Walkthrough: 6/10)

KSK staff + volunteers would label every food item that goes inside the KSK Food Bank.

This is to ensure proper tracking of all food items to avoid food wastage (and if necessary, recall). Tracking process explained in the next few photos >> (Walkthrough: 4/10)
