MOW CELEBRATE - Meals on Wheels celebrated Festival of Lights with the needy

Ti-Ratana Meals on Wheels (MoW) volunteers turned up early at the centre to convoy to Dewan Taman Damai in Kapar, to celebrate Deepavali with 45 less fortunate families and their children.

 After loading bags of goodies onto the MoW van, we left for Kapar at 10:30am. Traffic was smooth and we got there in less than 45 minutes.

What can be more inviting than being greeted by upbeat Tamil songs blasting from the speakers!!! And the families together with their children are already at the venue awaiting our arrival.

 While the volunteers organized the wish list items …

 and tee shirts and muffins were distributed to the children,

 .. they were already having a jolly good time. Some of the younger children were in the hall participating in a coloring contest.

 Others were outside trying to be the first to burst the balloon …

 Musical chairs were a big hit as the children tried their best to outdo each other and win a prize.

 The children also had a blast trying to knock down tin cans with a tennis ball.

 Mothers were patiently sitting under the tent, while watching the children at play, and probably thinking of the preparations at home that still need to be done before Deepavali.

 The others were just hanging around enjoying the music, and taking in the festive atmosphere.

 And the winners of the games were delighted when they received their prizes.

 After the children had their fun and games, it was time for the mothers to receive their goodie bags. Puan Kamatchi, Puan Sundari and Puan Suseela were amongst the first three families to receive their gifts, comprising a grocery bag of muruku flour, cooking oil, dhall, sugar, curry powder, cordial and chicken. Each mother also received a sarong, and the children were delighted with the goodie bags received. And last but not least, they all went home with packed lunch containing rice, fried chicken, and vegetables.

Volunteers then took turns to distribute Deepavali goodies to the rest of the families.

 After the distribution of the wish list items, some of the MoW volunteers visited several family homes to see for themselves the living condition of these families.

 The event would not have been possible without the support from the local community leaders, i.e. Pastor Mageson, his wife Elizabeth and Puan Nalini, who helped select the 45 deserving families for this event, and communicated with the families about the event.

 And of course, our heartfelt appreciation and big thank you to all our generous donors.
