On 30th October 2021, Inner Wheel Club Of Melaka conducted a food distribution event to 70 needy families at 4 areas in Jasin District namely Kampung Ayer Merbau, Taman Ayer Merbau, Taman Bemban Baru and Taman Maju. It was a joint project between IWCM and JC Team, a Voluntary Community Service group which supplies all the 70 food boxes for the listed recipients. IWCM was also fortunate to enlist the help of Murugan Rajappan PBM, the Chairman of the Parents-Teachers Association (PTA) of SJKT Ladang Jasin Lallang to identify the 70 needy recipients at a kampung and neighbouring residential areas in Jasin.


There was an orderly line awaiting us when we and the JC Team van arrived at the main assembling venue at Taman Ayer Merbau.  Recipients were happy to receive the food aids and thankful for the household supplies that came just in time for the Deepavali celebration. The JC Team presented a set of equipment and sanitising liquid to SJKT Ladang Jasin Lallang to sanitise the school premises in preparation for the school reopening.


Thanks to Murugan, our ground level contact, IWCM was able to carry out the food aids distribution smoothly and in ensuring the social distancing prerequisites amongst the recipients.  Grateful thanks to the JC Voluntary Team for their Food boxes which help to facilitate IWCM’s Community Reach Out Initiatives to the needy folks during the Deepavali season.  IWCM wishes all the Hindu celebrants a joyful and wonderful Festival of Lights.
