When Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) held our fund-raising dinner back in February, the biggest surprise of the night was YB Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil’s announcement…on behalf of the Malaysian government, she would be donating RM50,000 to our cause!
Under the leadership of Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, Yang Berhormat said that the government placed great importance on the people’s welfare. As such, it was under her purview as Minister of Women, Family and Community Development to support initiatives that worked for the development of all Malaysians.
Well, there’s no doubt – Yang Berhormat is truly a woman of her word! On 12 August 2010, our President Ruby Khong and our committee made their way to the Ministry to be presented with the cheque. It is a sum of money that will go a considerable way towards helping the 850 over mouths we feed each weekend!
To Yang Berhormat and the Malaysian government, thank you for your support and endorsement of our community work. In the quest for a 1Malaysia, like the government, KSK pledges to always put the People First.
