cooks up to 110kg of rice in 20 minutes. Sambar cauldrons cook up to 1200
litres of sambar in two hours

It is washed thoroughly on the 2nd floor

Mr. Lukman,
for your information, it's not the INVESTMENT being made here. It's the outcome of good samaritans' donations to provide basic needs for the needy people. Instead, you should pray to have good people who use the funds and donations wisely for humanity purpose. said...
