PERTIWI Soup Kitchen

Last night my wife & I joined the PERTIWI (Pertubuhan Tindakan Wanita Islam) Soup Kitchen for its Wednesday night run. It was our second time as volunteers and I decided to document it.

A unique aspect of the soup kitchen is ensuring that all who we attend to get their share of the meals, including the ones in the last 3 images :)

I encourage everyone to chip in & do their best within their means to improve conditions & solve problems in our society. It need not be with a soup kitchen, but at least know what you can do starting with your own family, and followed by friends and neighbours. Just sitting at home and applauding the good works isn't enough.

For full info, including how to volunteer and/or donate, please visit the official facebook page here:

"Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day the sun comes up : to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it is a charity: a good word is a charity, every step you take to prayers is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity." - Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

Nice. I also think that acting instead of just applauding good work is better.

Last weekend I helped clean a beach and its was one of the most rewarding things I've done in quite a long time. I thanked a lot more the people who helped us, than those who only congratulated us for our work.
