Taking To The Streets In #ProjectNourish
Working with two local NGOs – Pertiwi Soup Kitchen and Kechara Food Bank – over 150 Maxis volunteers took to homes and the streets during Ramadan to distribute food and essential supplies to the urban poor and homeless in and around the Klang Valley.
The #ProjectNourish programme began on 12 July 2015, where 50 Maxis volunteers helped Pertiwi by purchasing and distributing 450 packs of food and drinks to the urban poor and homeless along Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman and Kompleks Kota Raya. Pre-loved clothes collected from our internal donation drive were also handed to families. Two days later on 14 July, over 100 Maxis volunteers helped Kechara to purchase, pack and distribute food boxes to 150 urban poor families in Kuala Lumpur and around Klang Valley. Essential items such as rice, cooking oil, Milo, oats, condensed milk, canned food, sugar and salt were distributed to 150 families registered with the NGO.
#ProjectNourish was more than just about helping the needy. It gave us the opportunity to go down to the ground to see for ourselves the reality of urban poverty, have a sense of gratitude and do something meaningful. It was certainly an eye opening experience to be able to directly interact with and help those in need.
It was a bright and breezy Saturday morning at Kampung Quop, Kuching, Sarawak. Daphne Xandria with 19 of her Year 6 school friends were heading to the Pusat Internet to have their first experience learning about fractions with eCikgu.
