KAJANG: For Lent, youths from the Tamil Apostolate of the Church of the Holy Family set up a Food Bank in Perhentian Kajang.

“We saw Instagram influencers starting food banks in Petaling Jaya and we thought that Kajang needs one, too,” said Thessalonica, one of the youths involved.

The youths started the Food Bank to run from March 20 till 30. Pasaraya MU allowed us to set up the food bank there. We stocked it with dry food, canned food, toiletries and household cleaning products. Since then, many foreigners and residents in Perhentian Kajang have frequented the food bank for supplies.

"Every morning, we replenish the supplies and we also have people contributing nasi lemak and some others goods also.

Planning for this programme began on February 21. We informed the Tamil-speaking youth and their families and relatives to donate the supplies. There were also some good souls who donated cash and goods too.

Generous contributions from the Tamil Apostolate and other donors have kept the Food Bank running successfully.

“We thank the Lord for the seeds of care and compassion that He has planted in these youth and for the generous donors for their charitable acts towards the poor.”

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. (Hebrews 13:16).

The extra supplies such as rice, mee hoon, Maggie mee, oil and sugar will be donated to Eden Home. The home is in need of adult diapers (size L) and milk.
