About Mutual Help and Care

It was formed in 1990, providing food provisions to needy families, individual destitute, Community Development Council, Meet-the people sessions and other charitable/voluntary organizations. The foodstuffs such as rice, cooking oil, instant noodle, vermicelli, beverage, canned food etc, are donated by the general public. We will purchase the re-packing material and activate the volunteers for re-packing on every Thursday (from 7.30pm to 9.30pm) and Sunday (from 10.30am to 12 noon). The food ration packs will be delivered to the designated points in various districts on the schedule date/time for distribution.
