Of Kedai Jalanan [Street Shop] for the Homeless....

Idrus Abu Bakar's photo.It was a beautiful morning in June and I thought that I would write about this happening that was organized by our daughter Lin. She with her students from the University Malaya starts a new project call Kedai Jalanan [Street shop] starting on Saturday May 17, 2015 afternoon at Jalan Panggong where the Dapur Jalanan takes place every Sunday. It would be held once a week and at time at other location of the city. This is a charity project where used clothing and still in good condition are distributed free in a proper manner [all clean and hang and not just dump] each homeless are allows to take two only. This is a social science projects to give exposure to her students about the reality of life of the homeless and the urban poor in the city of Kuala Lumpur. At the same time help the homeless to get new clothing and others good for their daily uses. 

Here is a writeup by Blogger Wong Ee Lynn who also give a helping hand for the success  of the project. She was there too on that day.
