Many families are suffering badly during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the prolonged lockdown has resulted in many breadwinners losing their source of income and the ability to feed their family.


The Inner Wheel Club of Alor Setar learnt of one such family who is living in a very badly dilapidated home. Members donated to help the family with provisions and other basic needs that would see them through for at least a month.  Today, Secretary Shantha presented two boxes of provisions to this family who expressed their gratitude. They possess no means of transport and the remoteness of their location hampered them from reaching out for help.


IWC AS was certainly glad to relieve the family of some suffering which they had been enduring for months.
