Did you say they were exceptional great human beings? But haven’t we all felt such deep sentiments and intense compassion in our life on some occasions and yet fell short of acting on them due to our other commitments and/or lack of resources? Some of us, therefore, have joined and formed a charity trust to provide a platform to share such feelings and experiences of like-minded people and pool in our resources to channelise them into a synergetic effort to serve the society. We have named it as Missameal Trust because we feel that, if necessary, we can miss one meal a week to contribute our share of resources without affecting any of our commitments and with beneficial effect to our health. Missameal is essentially a win-win concept enabling everyone to participate in this endeavour.
