Scout members helping provide food to needy families
All over the world, we see people and families who are unable to find edible healthy food. So we as scouts decided, for the 3rd year in succession, to help with a charity organisation which helps provide food for needy families all year round and especially during the holy month of Ramadan. This charity cooks big amounts of food each day, and many poor and needy families go there to get food, with fair amounts based on the number of their family’s members and their need. This charity provides a variety of services and volunteers like us get assigned certain tasks in which they are able to help.
So some of us were asked to put the food in plates to give it for the people, others had to see what each family specifically needs and deliver the right amount of food to them.It was a great chance for the young scouts to see that there are many people who are not able to provide food for themselves and their families from the big number of people there. It was also an honor for us to help in this charity which provides a very big number of meals for poor people each day, and to help there twice during this busy month.
At the end we have to remember that scouting is about understanding and living the reality of how many people have different living conditions, to appreciate our own, and allow us to provide as much help as we can to them.
