The ALWEHDAH Youth Wing was privileged to be able to conduct and participate in a pre-Ramadhan donation drive, involving about 60 households in the Bendemeer, Boon Keng and Tampines areas. This year, we were glad to be able to work with our partner, Ms. Talha Alkaff, a volunteer who has tirelessly been assisting the needy for many years now.
This year, for the first time, ALWEHDAH received a generous contribution of 300 kg rice from the Muslimin Trust Fund Association (MTFA) for distribution. The team also raised private cash donations exceeding S$3,000, in addition to donations of other foodstuffs for the distribution.
The spirit of working together, or "gotong royong", was evident during the packing phase, when volunteers from the Youth Wing and friends helped with the efficient packing of bags filled with necessities, as well as during the distribution day, with many of the Youth Wing members contributing their time and effort to a worthy cause.
The Youth Wing would like to thank everyone who made this event possible, and are honoured to be given the opportunity to be able to contribute our time and effort for the community.
