'Jiak ba buay?' which is Hokkien for 'Have you eaten?', literally translates to ' Eat full already?'. It is a colloquial greeting to ask if one has had their fill and is also synonymous with ' How are you?' in modern day English.

Steeped in Asian culture, this expression is also commonly used amongst our other fellow Singaporeans as 'Dah makan?' in Malay, 'Sappittaya?' in Tamil or 'Eat already not?' in Singlish.

A term that we often take for granted especially for those who have had plenty or enough to eat, it is through these times of crisis where we are reminded that not everyone can 'jiak ba' or eat their full, simply because they are struggling to get by. In some families, 1-2 meals a day is probably the norm and parents may even cut back on their portions just to ensure that their loved ones are full.

We would like to ask for your generosity so that low-income families who do not have enough food on the table, are able to have this basic necessity met.

About the Charity

Beyond serves disadvantaged young people and their families to move them beyond their problems. We want to develop young people who respect the law, value education and seek to become responsible persons.

Keeping young lives on track is about building a community where they can grow, contribute and believe that they are a part of. Beyond works to build inclusive communities where young people, local neighbourhoods, and wider society, can come together to share their gifts and cooperate on resolving their issues.

We value inter-organisational collaboration & will steadily expand by building networks of individuals and organisations that contribute towards our vision. We believe that our target group always benefits when more members of the community take an active interest in their well-being.
