Sima Handicapped Centre Charity Food Fair.

Charity food fair on May 1

THE SIMA Handicapped Centre in Penang will be organising a charity food fair to raise RM100,000 for its training fund.

Event organising chairman R. Sunny Subramaniam said the fair would be held on May 1 from 11am to 3pm at the Caring Society Complex.

He said they planned to have about 40 hawker-style stalls, but this would entirely depend on the sale of tickets.

He said they managed to raise between RM20,000 and RM30,000 in their last year’s food fair. The event was solely organised by the centre without any help.

“But this time around, we are getting Air Itam Gospel Centre to help with the food fair. We hope to raise RM100,000 from the ticket sales, ” he said.

He said the organising committee was also looking for sponsors for the stalls.

“Donations in cash will be channelled to the setting-up of the stalls,’’ he said.

Subramaniam added that the fund would be used to help train the handicapped to be independent.

“The centre trains them in baking, sales and recycling to ensure they can earn a living’’ he said.
