WHO WE ARE
Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) is a non-religious community action group that distributes food, basic medical aid and counselling to the homeless and urban poor of Malaysia.
Founded by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, the Spiritual Guide of the Kechara organisation, KSK is strictly non-religious, being mindful and respectful of others’ beliefs. We do not discriminate in terms of race, gender or culture, our motto being “Hunger Knows No Barriers”. For this reason, our food is vegetarian.
WHAT WE DO
Kechara Soup Kitchen’s mission in the short term, to provide sustenance and basic medical care for the homeless and urban poor in Malaysia. In the medium term, we aim to provide a permanent soup kitchen building as a place of safety, “off street”, for the distribution of hot food and medical treatment facilities for the homeless, whilst continuing to provide street food delivery to those who are unable to come to the centre. In the long term, Kechara Soup Kitchen’s mission is to reduce the flow of homeless living on the streets by providing a nurture centre building as a place of training and assistance to help make the homeless employable and for them to re-enter society.
Vegetarian meals are served from the kitchen. Volunteers will be involved in packing cooked food into paper wrappers before being distributed from the kitchen counter for the walk-in clients to collect. Volunteers can help our kitchen supervisor to clean dishes and clean the kitchen after the busy distribution period. No cooking is done in the kitchen. All necessary equipment will be provided.
