Life can be overwhelming and sometimes we need to seek the inner child in us to start reconnecting to what matters the most in life.
The last few months have been a challenging period for us. Why? Do we not love what we do? So why the challenges?
'With love comes responsibility and with responsibility comes awareness' #aydanomous
Sometimes when you love something so much you want nothing but the best for it. We love ftpc so much. We know of its potential and we know of whom it have helped. We know. Since 2012 it have always been about 'Tangan Kanan Memberi and Tangan Kiri Tak Tahu' we are ol'skool like that. Does it work? Maybe. Sometimes people dun get us and they hurl abuse and criticism towards what we do...like...,
1. Are you sure you gave the groceries to the right people?
2. That family have been help by so many groups before yours!
3. How do we know whether they actually get the items...
It's just words...but it hurts. Because at the end we are just humans who is trying to connect the dots in life.
The last two months it's seem we have not been active...hv we fall off the radar? Did we no longer do this? When would the next distribution be? All this question comes thru sms, whatsapp and pms.
We thank you for those who care to ask. No we did not fall of the radar nor do we have closed #FTPC. In fact how do you stop doing what you love? Here what we do is more that just giving groceries, it's about hope, it's about camaderie, it's about caring for each other!...
But you need to take stock of what have been done so you can chart a better strategy forward.
That is what we have been doing the last months where we were quiet...we have restrategize so we can outreach to more...in sha Allah.
Does this mean we will give to more people?
Does it mean our distribution will be bigger and better?
Does it mean we will get more supporters and contributors and collaborators?
In the meantime we can't say much but please be assured that we are trying our best to give you the best...
Our promise to our contributors is to be #yourarminkindness to give out to others as what was given to us.
Our promise to our volunteers is to provide a space everyone can come together either packing or distributing under the blocks or straight to homes in manners that will still uphold the dignity of the recipients.
Our promise to our recipients is to ensure that help is given without any invasion of their privacy and violation of their dignity. For at the end it is us who is fortunate to have the opportunity to assist not the other way round.
Our promise to ourselves is to ensure to always be answerable for our actions and to our contributors, volunteers and recipients...for the critiques we love you but we do not need any demeaning remarks nor do we need skepticism, we do what we love from where we are and with what we have.
With that we are happy to announce that we have officially registered ftpc as a Company - FTPC SG LLP.
We have also receive our social enterprise status (we took this route because we cannot afford to register as a Society nor NGO)
So? What does this mean? It means that if previously you wonder if we are accountable for what you give us...we assure you that we do.
For a start for our contributors we can now issue receipts for every groceries bags purchased to be delivered to the recipients. Awesome right?
So for the delivery/distribution of groceries bags...that we have postponed last month to the 25th Sept ...do await the announcement tomm.
More things to share with all...but now need to rush off to work - YES we do hold down jobs to feed our families too... Till later ...Stay Tune! And #benice to everyone you meet, you wouldn't to now the challenges they have to go thru daily...
