Hopefully, this piece will serve as a starting point or reference should you wish to share your privilege this month. If you’re staying around the city centre though, DBKL has announced that neither NGOs nor individuals are allowed to distribute food to the homeless on their own.

Instead, you’ll have to call 03-2617 6321 for scheduling purposes or distribute the food through 2 homeless transit centres in Jalan Pahang and Medan Tuanku, as well as the Community Learning Centre in Chow Kit.

To our Muslim readers, we wish you a blessed fasting month, and always remember to stay safe if you’re heading to the busy bazaars for food!
