Well, kitties and peeps, I'm talking about Mama and her duty in this month of fasting. You see, Mama's organisation runs a programme called Fast2Feed where they feed the needy all over Malaysia. The needy here means orphans, poor children, single mothers and poor senior citizens. The international network runs this programme all over the world but then Mama concentrates on this country only, for now.
The programme is simple, the public gets to sponsor one needy person at a fixed rate of MYR40 (add another MYR20 if you want to attend the event as well) while the organisation delivers the whole works. The sum received will be used to pay for the food plus a goody bag and some cash. (My complaint: as the son of the chairperson, I have to suffer by having dinner without my pawrents at home....)
Mama says they have delivered all events in Klang Valley and next week will see actions in other parts of the country like Johor, Terengganu, Perak, Penang and Perlis. There are still opportunities for sponsorship, better late than never....
Events in Sabah and Sarawak will be held after Eid, she added, if the time permits. I think Mama will also have a big do on that island of hers. Her water project is completed and will be officially launched. So expect some kitty sitting stories soon....
In the mean time, here are some photographs to ogle at.
|Hmmm...cute.... some orphans dishing out the goodies. I like pretty girls...everyone knows that!|
|Ooops! Madam Chair entertaining a permanent resident of an orphanage! Hey! How come I don't get that special treatment at home?|
|Another PR entertaining the visitors. OK, this event is at a human shelter, not the SPCA....|
|Breaking fast with simple fare cooked by the Myanmar refugees. Hmm....more pretty girls.|
|Mama made the visiting Vice-Chairman from the UK headquarters worked for his supper! teeheehee....|
|I loooove pictures of happy faces! These are the OA kids from ASDAF with some generous uni students.|
Brad's notes: This is annual affair that runs in the whole month of Ramadhan. Be generous, people! har har har *happy laughs*
