Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A very kind man, Brian Birkett, has been dedicating his time and energy to ensuring that homeless people do not go hungry.
Every week, the man who lives on a pension cooks 50 plates of food and takes them out to people on the street. The meal always contains rice, fries, and chicken, Understanding Compassion reports.
What a complete meal
The meal he prepares is an Irish food popularly called 4-in-1. Apart from paying for the meal from his own pocket, he also volunteers with an NGO, A Lending Hand, which works towards the welfare of people, Irish Central reports.
Another volunteer of the NGO, Keira, said that the outfit is committed to ensuring homeless people do not go hungry.
Brian is committed
“We all cook every Monday night from our homes and make sandwiches, collect clothes, toiletries, and sleeping bags. It all comes out of our own pockets as we are not registered.
“Brian comes into town every Monday and drops his curries off to us and we serve the people of Dublin in need. He’s a good friend - we all are, we’re like a family now.”
It should be noted that Brian was already trained by an Indian chef to ensure that the food he cooks from home is always tasty.
A young Nigerian fed many
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young man, Roland Ochard, showed that humanity is all about giving oneself to make our society better.
In a post that has since gone viral, the young Nigerian was pictured preparing the food he planned to give out to people who lack it.
What got people's attention more was not just the food but that the giver placed the sum of N200 note on each plate of meal to show that he does not only want to feed them but is also interested in enriching their pockets.
