ABOUT 50 needy folk in Ipoh have received food aid from an IT trainer for youths.
Khuswindera Singh Tara Singh, who is also a volunteer at the Perak Youth Assemblyman Menglembu constituency, presented the aid to those who had either lost their source of income, were unwell or former Covid-19 patients.
Those who are not doing well in their respective businesses also received the aid which included rice, milk powder, biscuits, cereal drinks and voucher for a free pizza.
Khuswindera Singh, who is also Buntong Malaysian Indian Youth Council (MIYC) welfare executive council member, hoped the food items could tide them over difficult times.
He gave out 100 packed lunches to the recipients.
“I also hope everyone gets vaccinated to protect not only ourselves but the community as well.”
Khuswindera said he has held such food aid programmes before this.
“The programme was held in conjunction with Malaysia Day. I will hold another round for the youth community in the near future,” he said.
Also present to give out the aid were Ipoh city councillor S. Jayagopi as well as Tambun MIYC chairman and deputy chairman K. Dinesh and M. Nagaenthran, respectively.
Khuswindera thanked Jayagopi, who contributed eight bags of rice, for joining him in helping the people in Buntong and extended appreciation to all other contributors.
“I hope to work with more local leaders to benefit the people.”
