Our fellow male colleagues have a wonderful afternoon working out to move the rice sacks for their team and the ladies have their share in ensuring the items are packed accordingly in the bag. I’ve learnt that it doesn’t matter how small the contribution is, it is still something meaningful for the needy.”
