Cafe serving free food to needy folk


A NON-GOVERNMENTAL organisation known as Kindness Malaysia has set up ‘Kindness Kitchen Cafe’, offering free food to the poor for the breaking of fast in Alor Setar, Kedah.

Its chairman Mohd Azrul Mohd Razak said the poor and needy, as well as the homeless, orphans and persons with disabilities, are welcome to the cafe, which is located in Jalan Sultanah.

“For this Ramadan, we only operate the cafe on Saturdays from 7pm to 9pm, ” he told Bernama.

He said the cafe, which was recently launched, was set up following a survey which found that the poor, especially those with large families, had never or rarely ate out.

“Now, they can eat out by coming to our Kindness Kitchen Cafe. They can eat for free, ” he said, adding that some 25 volunteers worked on rotation at the cafe, including to prepare the dishes.

He welcomed volunteers to help with projects carried out by Kindness Malaysia (Kedah) and those interested can call 016-707 4798. — Bernama
