Let's Donate to Yayasan Food Bank Malaysia's Merdeka Charity Fund

Helping poor and needy people is important to strengthen the society… We actually help raise our community when we provide support and a helping hand to those who are less fortunate than us.

We can help them lead a better life… and that is why all religions expect it…..

 Helping the poor and needy is a duty of every Muslim to give Zakat and Sadaqah to the poor and needy as a part of the worship and pleasing Allah the Almighty.

Helping the poor for Christians is a commandment. The Bible tells us repeatedly just how important it is to care for people who are impoverished, both physically and spiritually. Christ tells us in Matthew 25:40 that when we take care of a person’s physical needs, it holds spiritual significance, saying, “Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”

Giving, or generosity, is one of the Perfections (paramitas) of Buddhism, but to be "perfect" it must be selfless, without expectation of reward or praise. Throughout his teaching, the Buddha was clear that one should not turn away from suffering but do whatever can be done to relieve it.

Charity is an essential feature of dharma. Karma and moksha - many Hindus believe that by acting with compassion towards those less fortunate, is a very good way of building up good Karma, giving them rewards in later lives. 

In reality, many people have a sincere desire to help, but they may not know how to…
