If you can’t feed a hundred people,
then feed just one.
It started entirely as a grass-roots volunteer effort, just concerned people who wanted to do something about homelessness. Inspired by the kindness of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, a group of volunteers began distributing food to the urban poor in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The Kechara Soup Kitchen was born.
From the initial 50 packets of warm food, volunteers from all walks of life now feed 800 homeless people a week with food sponsored by kind donors. More than just providing succour to the hungry, Kechara Soup Kitchen aims to reform the destitute and eventually find employment for them, ending their cycle of hopelessness.
Amenities are needed to provide the much needed skills training and therefore the long term vision is to build a facility that could provide safe shelter, food, support services, and an avenue towards self-sufficiency for homeless adults in our community who otherwise would have had nowhere else to turn to. We believe that all people deserve the basic necessities in life, and the community in which we live is called to serve this purpose.
We abide by our core values of treating all with dignity, offering support and opportunity, practicing responsible stewardship, social responsibility and achieving results through competence and care.
How can you help? A donation towards funding this shelter goes a long way to where the greatest need is at the moment, and that is providing immediate relief to the people who are suffering. You can do your part.
