KUALA LUMPUR– With the Covid-19 pandemic leaving a profound impact on livelihoods, a student body has taken upon itself to support those struggling to stay financially afloat.
In line with the belief in giving back to the community, the 21st Pesta Tanglung Universiti Malaya (PTUM) has joined forces with Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) in organising a donation package for the needy from November 21 to December 20.
Making a positive impact on society
Themed “Giving with Impacts”, the donation campaign is aimed at spreading warmth to every corner of Malaysia during the pandemic and assisting those in need to tide over their financial difficulties.
A canvas bag, T-shirt, two specially handmade mooncakes, and a free mobile phone holder is included in each donation package exclusively designed by PTUM’s team of executives.
Each donation package is priced at RM49 with no shipping fees attached to it. Why? That’s because PTUM’s team will be delivering it directly to the recipients on your behalf! You can buy them from here.
About PTUM and KSK
Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) is an organization that has provided assistance to marginalised communities in Malaysia including the homeless, urban poor, and indigenous people since 2008.
True to the spirit of providing help regardless of religion and background, KSK has also established several soup kitchens, food banks, and Empowerment Programmes to help these vulnerable groups in hopes that Malaysia would one day become a nation with less homelessness, hunger, poverty, food wastage while enjoying a better quality of life.
