On 8 October, we collaborated with Sejahtera Malaysia to provide food aid to 200 families from Balok and Paka in Terengganu and Pahang. The foods were purchased from 2 local sundry shops in the area and it takes a few days to complete the distribution due to EMCO.
These families earned their livelihoods through employment in the tourism sector as well as through businesses providing goods and services to the tourism industry. Unfortunately, they had been severely affected by the standstill in the tourism industry as a result of the pandemic.
Thank you to Hong Leong Foundation, Sejahtera Malaysia #KekalBersih and the onsite teams in both states for organising the food aid on the ground and supporting us.
