FFS recently received a request from the student representative of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Universiti Malaya, to support undergrad graduates with food aid. 60% of students at the faculty come from the B40 group and their parents are not able to give them much financial aid, if any. Some of the students on the list are orphans too. The student loans have been used up to pay the fees and rent. While many do weekend jobs to survive, food aid is a constant need and the student leaders here have set up a food bank as an initiative.
Last Friday, FFS delivered boxes of dry food items like Milo, cereal, sugar, instant noodles, instant porridge, cream crackers, and soy sauce. The food insecurity issue many students face is concerning, and we are happy to play a small part in helping those students overcome that challenge.
