The act of distributing food supplies is a mere way of reaching out and forming a relationship to dialogue and help our homeless friends re-integrate back into society through counselling, potential job opportunities and simply lending a willing ear that listens to them and their stories. In essence, it consist of a group of like-minded people reaching out and paying it forward. It is to break social stigmas over the homeless and underprivileged & to help our fellow Malaysians get back on their feet. The aim is to show our homeless friends some respect, afford them some dignity and to basically offer them hope. The ultimate goal is to assist our homeless friends to break out of the poverty/homelessness cycle. As such, we are constantly looking for assistance/sponsors to find sustainable solutions for this very purpose.
