Clients on the street are always vulnerable to infections as they are often exposed to bacteria/viruses and unclean environments. The medical team at Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) treats clients who have serious medical issues every Saturday. The volunteer doctors and other volunteers are very dedicated in offering their services or lending an ear to the woes faced by the clients.
This location at Segi College, Kuala Lumpur, is one of the most “popular” spots for our homeless clients. They tend to stay together in groups. Homeless people are also vulnerable to petty theft and other crimes and hence, being together with other homeless provides some form of security.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who turned up to help in our food distribution rounds over the last week of 2016. It was a challenging week looking for volunteers to come and participate as Chirstmas eve and New Years eve fell on Saturdays. However food distribution and medical services continued as usual as that is our commitment to our clients at KSK. Happy New Year to everyone !
Everyday fresh vegetables are collected from Tesco Malaysia and being redistributed to the urban poor families who are registered with KSK, Thank you very much Tesco for contributing back to the poor community! Hopefully these donations will be able to help them ease their monthly financial burdens.
