On Saturday 10 October, a team of 20 Nalandian youths, led by Bro. Disheng, participated in a meal-packaging event at Berjaya Times Square.  It was hosted and organised by Berjaya Youth, in collaboration with ‘Stop Hunger Now’, a non-profit organisation based in the US which aims to end world hunger by operating international food-relief.

One hundred thousand packages comprising rice, soy, dried vegetables and vitamins, were packed and sent to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society for distribution to impoverished people in Malaysia and other parts of Southeast Asia.  Nalandian youths were grateful for the opportunity to contribute towards this effort to eradicate world hunger.  Sadhu anumodana.
