Good day to you! Raleigh Kuala Lumpur is collaborating with Kechara Food Bank in this awesome September monthly meet.

Have you heard about Kechara Food Bank? Well, please do not get confused with Kechara Soup Kitchen. Kechara Food Bank was launched in May 2012. Its purpose is to serve the marginalized community who have difficulty purchasing enough food to avoid hunger by offering assistance with basic household necessities such as cooking oil and rice.
