The new facility is on the fourth floor of a commercial building at Genting Lane.

According to the organisers, Willing Hearts moved to its current location from its former premises in Geylang to have a wider outreach.

Although the group, made up of volunteers, expects to face logistical challenges and rising costs, they say they are confident of overcoming any teething problems.

According to Willing Hearts, Archbishop Chia said he would arrange for seminarians to spend some time at the soup kitchen as part of their formation.

The organisers also say they hope more volunteers would come forward.

For the past nine years, Willing Hearts has been providing free cooked meals to the underprivileged of all races, cultures and religions.

The new soup kitchen is at 50 Genting Lane, #04-06, Singapore 349558. For more information on Willing Hearts, call 6476 5822 or visit www.willinghearts.org.sg
