The "Feeding The Needy" fund raising campaign is part of the year long program organised by The Buddhist Maha Vihara (BMV) in memory of and to honour a great human being, the late Dr. K. Sri. Dhammandanda.

The objective of this campaign is to provide food provisions and other essentials to 120 under-privileged families.

In order not to burden the under-privileged by going to the Buddhist Maha Vihara ("BMV") at Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur to receive food and donation, BMV instead planned to distribute the essential provisions by holding a "Charity Drive" on Sunday, 19 August 2007 to send the items to the needy. The provisions which are packed into cartons are : 10kg of rice; 5kg of cooking oil; 1.2kg Milo; 2kg sugar; 800gm biscuits; 2cans sardines, 1kg margarine; 1kg salt; toothpaste; 3 per pack toothbrush. Each food carton weighs approximately 12kg and one 10kg of rice.

BMV is requesting interested volunteers and volunteers with own vehicles to help by:

1. Offer your services to drive / deliver the food cartons to an under-privileged family.

2. Offer to help in the charity drive.

The locations are as follows:

Location No.of Homes / Families Drivers & Volunteers needed
