Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, 18 November 2020 — In conjunction with the Festival of Light, Sunway Group, via its #SunwayforGood Deepavali Cheer initiative, is bringing some goodwill and joy by providing food aid to a total of 10,155 beneficiaries in the Klang Valley, Perak and Johor.
In a true Malaysian spirit, bottom 40% (B40) income-group Malaysian families of diverse races – whose sole breadwinners have lost their sources of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic – will receive essential groceries as relief for Deepavali.
Of the total beneficiaries, 4605 beneficiaries are based in the Klang Valley, 1,260 in Perak and 4,290 in Johor.
In Johor and Perak, Sunway is collaborating with its long-time partner, The National Committee for Community Services & Health Malaysian Red Crescent, to reach out to the B40 communities.
For the Klang Valley, Sunway partnered with FFM Berhad who had agreed to donate 5,089.2 kilogrammes (kgs) of food products from their brands namely Massimo, Blue Key Flour, Meadow Fresh, V-soy, Marina and Karts Food Malaysia.
These products will be divided into three batches and donated to non-governmental organisations (NGOs) namely the Development of Human Resources for Rural Areas Malaysia (DHRRA Malaysia), the Food Aid Foundation and The Lost Food Project.
