HELP reached the needy with the distribution of 150 food baskets containing essential food and household items.

The Lions Club of Penang Outreach through its ‘Hunger Relieving Project 2021: Food For Life Foodbank’ initiative distributed the aid to needy households to alleviate their burden during this pandemic.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow who launched the programme that entered its fifth round, commended those involved for the initiative.

“The programme has been successful thanks to the collaboration between the club and the various non-governmental organisations (NGOs), donors and supporters.

“Penang is thankful to the NGOs for their contributions to the needy during this trying period,” he said at the launch on Sunday.

The Hunger Relieving Project was co-organised by Teong Guan Association, Kawasan Rukun Tetangga (KRT) Jalan Burmah Tengah and Lebuh Chulia Village Community Management Council (MPKK).

Also present were Lions Club Penang Outreach president Ooi Ean Beng, Burmah Road Middle Section Teong Guan Association chairman Ang Thean Hua, KRT Jalan Burmah Tengah advisor Datuk Seri Tan Gin Soon and MPKK Lebuh Chulia chairperson Lily Wong.
