Malaysians Come Together To Hand Out Over 40K Meals With Uncle Malkith At GSPJ For Flood Victims

Thousands of Malaysians have been taking action to lend a helping hand in assisting the flood victims by showing up to the Gurudwara Sahib Petaling Jaya (GSPJ), that has been organising the massive relief effort since Sunday, 19 December.

JUICE spoke to SAYS Writer, Sadho Ram, who has been shadowing the initiative.

The Gurudwara kitchen has sent out over 40,000 free meals, not including the rations and other daily products such as sanitary pads, detergent, toiletries, baby formula, and other emergency essentials.

Malaysians of all sorts are pulling through to help out, regardless of race, age and gender.

The way Malaysians have come together to prepare meals for the stranded victims has inspired a massive outpouring of support online.

Netizens have caught attention of this and have been spreading the good work, along with their own thoughts.

According to SAYS, Malkith Singh arrives at 5am in the kitchen to cook up meals for distribution every day, and has even been coined as the beloved Uncle Malkith.

Even Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri, the former Kuala Lumpur mufti, showed up at the GSPJ to take stock of the situation and to make a donation.

He also helped in the kitchen as volunteers cooked hot meals to be sent out later today.

Meanwhile, there’s been a steady flow of people dropping by to donate groceries and daily essentials that are being sent to the victims.

The relief effort at GSPJ is expected to go on until Friday. As for volunteers, GSPJ is welcoming anyone who would like to help out.

Some key things to note if you are looking to lend a hand would be to bring your own headscarves, as everyone must cover their heads inside the compound, and to leave all vapes, cigarettes, and any alcoholic beverages at home.

According to Sadho, “One doesn’t need to know anything to help out as there are plethora of tasks to do here. The people at the Gurudwara will assist.”

Those looking to volunteer or donate can call the helpline at +6010-2174556.
