Compassion and Community, the BAC Way
As the holiday season drew near, and in the spirit of compassion and community, students and staff from Reliance College, Brickfields Asia College (BAC), and University Malaysia of Computer Science & Engineering (UNIMY) joined hands for a meaningful Street Feeding activity that took place on the 13th of December 2023. This collaborative effort aimed to bring relief to the homeless community around Klang Valley by providing essential items and fostering connections.
The collection drive garnered an array of crucial resources. Mineral water, buns, and basic necessities such as minyak cap kapak, plasters, and sanitary packs were gathered to be distributed to the less fortunate. Additionally, catering services were employed to prepare fried rice for 100 individuals, ensuring a wholesome meal for needy.
Reaching Those in Need
The evening began at 7:00 pm with a communal dinner and ice-breaking session, fostering a sense of unity among the volunteers from BAC, Reliance College, and UNIMY. Following this, at 8:30 pm, the team embarked on a short walk after sorting food packs and sharing basic instructions.
As the volunteers traversed the streets, they distributed food packs containing fried rice, buns and mineral water to the homeless individuals they encountered. Beyond the material support, the volunteers also engaged in meaningful conversations, gaining insight into the personal stories and situations of those they sought to assist. Practical demonstrations on wound care and hygiene were also conducted, showcasing the volunteers' commitment to holistic well-being.
Everyone expressed immense happiness and gratitude for the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of the underprvileged community. This collaborative effort showcased the power of unity in action, with volunteers from Reliance College, BAC, and UNIMY coming together for a common cause.
As the night came to an end, the shared commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others left an indelible mark on all involved, reinforcing the belief that giving is indeed better than receiving. With such a success as this, everyone is eager to take on future opportunities to give back like this.
