The inclement weather failed to dampen the enthusiasm and spirit of Mutiara Lions on the third day of their "Relieving the Hunger" project at the Kechara Soup Kitchen premises at Halaman Ariffin off Burmah Road, Penang. The skies opened up just before the distribution started, showering "blessings" on both the givers and receipients of this noble cause. However, this did not deter the Lions from their goal.
Ninety packets of "steaming" hot vegetarian rice, mandarin oranges, wafers, biscuits and mineral water were prepared and distributed by Lions of George Town Mutiara Lions Club on the third day of their effort to relieve the hunger amongst the homeless, less fortunate and needy of our community. Amongst the registered recipients were retirees, single parents, the aged, the handicapped and the neglected less fortunate of our community.
Through the efforts of the project secretary Past President (Zone 1 Chairperson) May Cheah, the menu for the food packets are changed everyday so that the receipients can enjoy the taste of different dishes. Even the caterers are changed every two days so that there is a variety in cooking styles.
