FEEDING THE HOMELESS : ANSARA SEREMBAN ’80 CHARITY PROGRAM
4 August, 2012 Leave a comment
A Charity Project by ANSARA SEREMBAN Batch 80 – 84:
And it is He who has made you successors upon the earth and has raised some of you above others in degrees [of rank] that He may try you through what He has given you. Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful. 6:165
Giving is a virtue, and ANSARA Seremban, with the Batch 1980 as the proponent, believes in giving back to society. Looking back at ayat 6:165, we feel blessed that we now find ourselves in our comfort zone. All around, a good life. But we are humbled to see that there are others who, for want of a better word, needs just a morsel to feed.
ANSARA Seremban “80 is currently involved in the “FEEDING THE HOMELESS” program. This is a monthly program where ANSARA members gather and participate in a “gotong royong” to cook and then pack into the food into packages for distribution for the needy.
The pledge made by Zainal Hisham Yusof, the ANSARA Seremban President Term 2012-2013 of RM1000 to help fund the “FEEDING THE HOMELESS” program is timely and welcomed.
Project No 1
On Friday, 20th July 2012, ANSARA Seremban 80 prepared and packed fried noodles (mee goring) at the “Ours Cafe” located at Bandar Sri Damansara. The “Ours Cafe” is owned and operated by Mimie, an ANSARA Seremban 80 alumni.
The Muslim Aid Organisation provide logistics assistance in the distribution of the food parcels, the primary areas of distribution being around Masjid Negara and Masjid India.
Kudos to the Gals for such a Wonderful Effort in Giving Back to Society. The 2nd Project will be held on 5 August 2012.
