MADPP Soup Kitchen
We gained a total of RM 3000, mainly from donations from many agencies. Our sponsor, MEX, also donated a huge amount of money for us. A brief explanation for our project : The main purpose of this project is to reach out to the poor and homeless around Ipoh in hope of alleviating their burden by providing food, clothes and services. This program is a collaboration with Dapur Jalanan Ipoh, a non-profit organization (NPO) acting as a soup kitchen that provides food to the homeless.
For the food, we prepared 150 boxes of sandwich, 100 tupperwares of spaghetti, biscuits, and bananas. We spent about RM 1700 for the foods. Apart from that, as we provided a hair cutting service for them, we used up about RM 300 to buy all the hair cutting stuff including the hair trimmer, scissors, comb, towel, mirror, shavers and razors, and a chair. Last but not least, we got RM 100 for transportation expenses which will cover the gasoline and tolls.
We departed from KKTM Lenggong at 3 pm, and arrived Medan Selera Dato Sagor approximately at 4.30 pm. Then, we set up our booth: booth for foods, and booth for hair cutting service. In between, Dapur Jalanan had supplied us a tent. It was a scorching day, but that didn’t deny our spirit to help the homeless and poor. All of us had equally assigned for every job. Almost 200 homeless and poor had came and joined us. We were shocked as we only prepared for only 150 of them. However, we managed to distribute our homemade foods equally to them. ‘Happiness’ was the only word that reflects their faces. It was a great success for us since we had planned this project for such a long time. Thanks to all donators, Mr Ainul, and those who directly or indirectly involved in making this project a huge success.
