Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) has come a long way since its inception in 2006 when a group of friends began distributing 20 packets of food to the homeless every week. In the last six years, KSK has grown from a small group of friends to a large dedicated team of volunteers who not only distribute food from the soup kitchen, but also to urban poor settlements as well as going to the streets distributing in an average of 1,500 packets of food a week.

Apart from giving food, KSK have also been providing their homeless clients with basic medical aid, clothing and other basic necessities. Their job does not end on the streets as their main objective is to help their homeless clients to get off the streets by providing job placements and placement aid.

Realising there are many more individuals out on the streets that needs to be helped, they are organising a fundraising dinner, one of our their fundraising events for 2011. The Annual Fundraising Dinner will be held at the prestigious JW Marriott Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, with the amount raised being used to help cover their ever increasing daily operating expenses.

  1. When people are down and out, and living on the streets. they need more than food. the homeless need a chance to get back on their feet and be independent and have their own self esteem. The sick needs medical care, medications and sometimes hospitalised. Peope like Jit who has been living out on the streets for 3 years and who has relatives needs to be reunited with her family. KSK has done just thatand helped to get another homeless off the street to be reunited with her family. So KSK does not just feed the homeless but also provide abovementioned serviices with the main aim to get them off the streets and help them to get back into the mainstream of society. Syabas to KSK for a great job well done. Of coursee with the help of the Star Media.
