Community Boleh

Mastinawati and her neighbour, Adam, were approached by Kim Seng Community Centre to help with distribution of food rations. She asked her neighbour Siti along as she had just stopped work due to health reasons.

Meanwhile, Shidah met a man who was half paralysed by stroke. He had knocked at her door one day asking for food. When Shidah referred the man to the neighbouring Volunteer Welfare Organisations, she found out that he was waiting to get his financial assistance. This made Shidah wonder how she can support her neighbours during difficult times. When Mastinawati approached her to help with the distribution of food rations, Siti rallied her family, friends and neighbour. They started with door-knocking in their neighbourhood and received very positive sign-ups in less than 3 days. In Mid-October 2018, they have completed 5 runs of food ration distribution.

Mastinawati and Shidah hope to increase their giving capacity because they strongly believe in “Community Boleh”. That is the reason they have called themselves “Gotong Royong Food Aid”.
