After a hearty breakfast, our MOW FOOD BANK volunteers were all ready to load the bags of rice and boxes of groceries onto the MOW baby van.
And off they went to the first stop, PPR Desa Rejang, where the families were eagerly waiting for the monthly supplies.
The families with school-going children also received reimbursement for their children's school bus fares for May/June, ranging from RM80 to RM210 per family. Thanks to a generous donor, the money came in useful for additional expenses during the fasting month and Raya.
Next stop was PPR Taman Melati ...
Kim delivered groceries to the Maran family on 28 July. Sasi was just fed his milk by the mother Vijaya and is sleeping on the floor, his usual spot near the house TV/radio.
A BIG THANK YOU to the following kind donors for their contribution to July 2013 groceries:
Yu Chee Koon
Tan Kai Ming
Celine Yong Chooi Ping
And also a BIG THANK YOU to Yen Ling and her friend who visited the 8 Muslim families in PPR Desa Rejang and Taman Melati on 20th July and presented each family with flour, sugar, margerine, grape cordial, cooking oil, tray of eggs, potatoes and dates (kurma). They also gave each family a raya packet of RM50, and each child a raya packet of RM20 plus a pack of goodies containing chips, chocolate and jelly.
