With all our preachings about #KitaJagaKita, Praviin took it to word and showed his compassion through actions.

When other people his age are probably struggling with university and online lessons, 20-year-old Praviin from Port Dickson took the initiative to set up a food bank using his own pocket money to make sure no one goes hungry.

According to Bernama, Praviin started the project four years ago when he was in Form Three and he was affected by his classmate’s plight who came from an underprivileged family. Since then, he began to help contribute basic food items such as rice, sugar, flour, milk and cooking oil from house to house with his teacher’s help.

“When I was in school, my father would give me RM20 a week and from that I would save RM13 for donation purposes. I managed to save RM100 to RM200 but at that time, I could only help ten difficult families selected in this area.”


He added that he also worked part-time at a car wash to increase his funds. “I’m not able to contribute on a large scale so I just do the best I can to make sure no one goes hungry in Port Dickson,” he said.

Praviin who intends to become a People’s Representative (MP) in the future, has already set up two food banks at  Batu 9, Teluk Kemang and Taman Mewah, Jalan Pantai. He currently works at his father’s air-conditioning shop and said his family is in full support of his philanthropic initiatives.

“I really like helping people… I want to help in terms of education, food and my mission is to make Port Dickson a zero-hunger district.”


He currently earns RM1,000 from which RM400 is set aside for his food bank necessities. The public has welcomed his initiative with open arms and Praviin has welcomed any interested parties who wish to help his movement to reach him at 017-3234033.

Kudos to Praviin for his valiant efforts to help people earnestly. We hope his dreams of becoming an MP becomes true as the country is in desperate need of leaders like him!
