For the last five weeks, our tiny team at Care Ipoh has been purchasing, packing, and delivering grocery packs to poor and needy families in the city of Ipoh, and its outskirts. Many of these families had been affected by loss of income due to the Movement Control Order (MCO). Others, already poor and struggling, were suffering even more.
For these families, and many other like them, the end of the MCO will not bring relief. It will take them a long time to get back on their feet, and it will be many months before they will be able to feed themselves. There will be rent, and bills to pay, with little to nothing left for food.
Care Ipoh therefore is dedicated to supporting them, and others who need help with grocery packs, giving them enough to feed a family for more than a month at a time. We have helped more than 210 families to date, and plan to help at least 400 more.
Each of our grocery packs is worth RM120, but as we also have in-kind sponsors, we only need to raise about RM60 per family.
To feed at least 100 needy families in Ipoh by giving them grocery packs that will last at least a month.
