ROW 2009

12 September 2009

It's the annual Ramadhan-on-Wheel again! After missing one year of ROW, it's great to be back again. I remember volunteering to pack food hampers for needy families for ROW 2007, when I just joined Eunos CC YEC.

ROW 2009 is different from other years. Instead of volunteer drivers delivering food hampers to the needy families, the families instead get to decide what they want to buy with an allotted budget. Before shopping for the necessities, they would have to attend a financial awareness workshop.

In this meaningful event, non-Muslims experienced what it is like to fast for one day and how Ifta (breaking fast) is held.

ROW is organised by 4PM (Malay Literary Youth Association).


  1. This is really interesting, that even needy people can choose there food within the budget limit. This is a good way to satisfy them even at the tough time.

  2. Iftar is the best part as people sit down together to break their fasts and which fosters a feeling of brotherhood.
