Kechara Soup Kitchen’s tireless work to house the homeless of Kuala Lumpur has once again attracted the attention of The Star, one of Malaysia’s premier English language dailies.

  1. It’s comforting to the homeless if we spare a minute or two to chat with some of them. I know for a fact that they feel a sense of guardianship from the volunteers knowing the food also comes with a little love and devotion and not just a robotic handing over of two packets of nutrition.

    The solitary indian lady beside TongShin Hospital wanted to give me her portion last week becos she thought I have not eaten yet. Ahpek Sun helped carry the wet-food over to the sleeping ground opposite Chahaya because he wanted to do his bit even though he is one of the homeless, and Anthony Dass who is recovering from a knife attack allowed me to take some pictures of him so I could relay his plight back to the admin of KSK.

    I like the Soup Kitchen and what they do. Ruby, Justin, Veronica Khoo, Quentin Parker and so many other who constantly give their time to the less fortunate is touching to say the least.

    Well KSK volunteers and admin personels. Ahpek Sun and a few others told me to say a big ‘Thank You’ to you guys on their behalf. Of cos Ah Lim and Mat Zul also suggest you fellas include some butter with the dry-food cos it’s hard to chow down on em’ plain bread ya?
