Much of the world is ravaged by poverty, destitution and disease, stemming from both human failings and natural causes.  We will support organisations that are working on the ground to provide water, food, shelter and healthcare in such places. 

Below are some examples of donations made in this area of focus.

Driving away food waste and hunger through the purchase of a 10-ton truck

Feeding Hong Kong

Feeding Hong Kong collects food that would otherwise be thrown away along the food chain by growers, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. The food is rescued and distributed to where it is most needed.

Chellaram Foundation has been able to support Feeding Hong Kong with the purchase of a 10 ton truck with a frozen section enabling food collection and distribution to 150 centres including homeless shelters, migrant support centres, women’s refugees, children’s homes and senior day centres.

The Kind Kitchen – Feeding the Homeless

The Kind Kitchen 1

The Kind Kitchen makes on average 3,000 servings per week of hot and cold nutritious meals for the homeless and destitute.   

The Kitchen employs a number of formerly homeless individuals providing on the job training and preparing them for work in the F&B sector.
