Serving Hope: Kechara Soup Kitchen Unites Communities in Urban Struggles

Kechara Soup Kitchen Society (KSK) have been serving marginalised communities in Malaysia for over 15 years; these include the homeless, urban poor and Orang Asli communities. Among others, they run a Soup Kitchen, a Food Bank and several empowerment programmes to help the different groups they serve. This October, KSK will be organising a nationwide food drive in conjunction with World Food Day 2023, to support the less fortunate. We speak to Justin Cheah, the Marketing Director of Kechara Soup Kitchen to find out more about the group's work, and the upcoming food drive.
