It's FRIDAY ... Day 5 of our Relieving the Hunger Project!

For the fifth straight day this week, Mutiara Lions spent the evening with the less fortunate and needy of our community. Providing them a proper hearty dinner to end their day.

News of the project had spread and the turnout was beyond our expectations. On the 1st day we provided 100 packets, 2nd day, 80 packets and 3rd to 4th day 90 packets each day. Today (5th day) we prepared 95 packets of food, but it was not enough as the crowd was larger than expected and we had to rush to purchase an additional 35 packets of food to cater to all those who turned up.

The finale of the project will be on 20 January 2012 (Friday) whereby the Club will prepare food for 150 persons together with goody bags. In celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year, "ang pows" (red packets) will also be distributed to those who turn up on that day.

Lining up under the watchful eye of PP May Cheah.
