It was honestly not an easy task given the wide variety of items, handling of heavy items, differing expiry dates and limited space for sorting and packing. I’m very grateful for all the support. I was very touched to see volunteers pushing past 6 pm to complete the stock-take despite how tiring the entire process was. Thanks to the volunteers’ time and effort, we now have a clear overview of our inventory at a glance. On top of that, the items have all been packed neatly into the respective boxes, facilitating our move to the new block sometime in mid-Nov 17. Thank you so so so much for everything.”
