Lions with a soft heart for hungry folk

SOME 60 homeless and poor individuals can look forward to free hearty meals sponsored by the Lions Club of Georgetown Mutiara District 308 B2 at the Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) in Halaman Ariffin, Penang.

Club president Kenny Yang said sponsoring the meals was part of the club’s Project Helping Hands to Relieve the Hunger. He said a memorandum of understanding was signed with KSK on Jan 7 to provide the meals for six months .

KSK volunteer Leonard Ooi said he was thankful to the club for providing the meals, adding that free vegetarian meals were provided to the homeless every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

“We have been providing free meals to these people for many years. Volunteers will also visit the Komtar bus terminal every Monday night between 10.30pm and 11.30pm to distribute food packets.”
