KLBC YLC’s Community Project - Pertiwi Soup Kitchen

The KLBC Young Lawyers Committee (KLBC YLC) celebrated the season of Ramadhan by espousing the spirit of empathy and charity.

On 26 June 2015, together with Pertiwi Soup Kitchen, 25 lawyers, who signed up immediately for the event within two days after it was announced, poured their hearts out in serving some 450 people on the streets of Jalan TAR and Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock.

Amongst the needy were the homeless, the elderly and infants. While many of the lawyers were initially foreign to Pertiwi Soup Kitchen’s standard operating procedures on serving, they became adroit in no time at all in performing special care to the needy, especially to the elderly and the infants.

In addition to the food prepared by Pertiwi Soup Kitchen, which included rice, fish, fruits, syrup and coffee, the KLBC YLC brought biscuits and snacks to add flavour to the servings.

“Service with a smile” was the tagline for the day, as the volunteers were happy that with what little they could contribute, they managed to not only feed the famished crowd, but to also put a smile on their faces.

At the end of the programme, which lasted from 9:00 pm to 12:00 midnight, the lawyers were reluctant to leave, and most, if not all, requested for another session so that they could contribute more to those in need.
