Sowing Care To The Homeless On Hari Raya Puasa

SowCare organised a sumptuous buffet dinner for the 8 Homeless/Rough Sleepers residing at S3P@Armenian on Hari Raya Puasa, 3 May 2022. In response to the Homeless/Rough Sleepers’ feedback that previous events were always held at Level 2 Car Park, Bible House the SowCare Team surprised the residents by hosting a sumptuous dinner buffet at XW Western Grill at Raffles City Shopping Centre with a choice of main course and all-you-can-eat salad bar of more than 20 hot and cold dishes.

The halal-certified restaurant offers a line-up of smoky favourites of chicken chop with black pepper sauce and golden fish fry.

The residents ate to their hearts’ content with orders after orders of side dishes like truffle angel hair, butter rice pilaf, egg white frittata, Thai glass noodle salad, garlic bread, mac and cheese, onion rings, cajun cauliflower poppers, fussilli fruit salad, etc.

Aside from our local outreach to provide S3P shelter and basic daily needs, SowCare also extends love to these marginalised and disadvantaged people through this dinner outing at a restaurant to lift up their spirits and be counted as equals within the community.

To spur one another on towards love and good deeds and appreciation for one another in S3P@Armenian, we urged them to write notes of encouragement to one another and thanksgiving to SowCare for providing them with safe and secure shelter, friendship and good meals, drinks and goodie bags to alleviate their sufferings.

Sharing his testimony, Mr R wrote: “Much thanks for the kind generosity and care during my stay at B.H. During my difficult times, this show of kindness is much appreciated. No such word is able to show my appreciation. Love & bless you all.”

Another resident, Mr H wrote: “Thank you SowCare for the shelter provided during the Covid-19 period, hope we can stay together even after the Covid-19 time.”

During these challenging times, SowCare continues to work hard through such initiatives for the disadvantaged by lifting up broken people in our community, both near and far, so that many more can receive the help they require.
