MSM Northern Regional Service Center is a Distribution Station. The donated supplies will first go to the Distribution Station for inventory, inspection and storage, and then arrange for the community partners to collect the supplies at the Distribution Station at the designated time. When our community partners came and received supplies, they often asked me:"How can you, a young lady, carry such a heavy bag of rice?" Perhaps it is because we are still young and can carry more and do more, but more often it is because we are WILLING to do so. Love is seeing one's own responsibility in the needs of others. We are willing to use our physical strength to help people in need.

Perhaps your love for this society is sprouting in a certain place, and it has even grown into a big tree, so that people can rest under it.
We really appreciate you to be our strong support in our community services!

Chicken drumstick is Leah's favorite food. But she always saved it for her mother whenever the it is on the school lunch menu. " I would like to save my favorite food for mom." says Leah.
Leah is from a single parent family. Her father passed away the year before due to myocardial infarction. Leah and her mother were then kicked out of their home by relatives. Leah felt helpless by the bullying her mother received from relatives. She is mature to her age and a very sensible and understanding child to her mother. She wants to grow up fast and protect her mother. Her mother takes several jobs to support both of them, mostly temp and low-paid jobs as she lacks the necessary education and working experiences. When she finally landed a cleaning job, she was then being laid off due to an employment disputes arisen out of an occupational accident. While she took the time to recover, she also lost her job which put the family finance situation in difficulty. Leah is able to get a meal a day in school but she always saves the main course to her mother.
What a child she is; luckily the social workers at the MSM local community service center immediately helped them! With the supplies from the Food Bank, and the the subsidy to relieve their money problem! Although poor, Leah is neither depressed nor disappointed by their family situation. Instead she often cheers her mother by saying, "It's ok! I will study hard, work hard and give you the best life in the future."
