Some 250 packs of food supplies and daily necessities were contributed to families in need through a joint effort between Bonanza Venture Holdings (BVH) and the Ipoh City Council (MBI).
According to the Executive Director of Operations for BVH, Edwin Tan, this is the first-ever collaboration between the company and the council.
“We’re grateful for MBI’s willingness to join forces with us in helping to support families badly affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting Movement Control Order (MCO).
“Out of the 250, 100 packs are to be distributed to residents of three flats in Ipoh, namely Waller Court, Kinta Heights and Buntong Harmony.
“The remaining 150 are additional allocations by BVH to aid other individuals/households who suffered a direct hit from the pandemic’s aftermath, such as daily wage earners and small businesses.
“Each packet contains rice, noodles, raw food ingredients and sanitary products, alongside toys for families with children.
“We would like to urge those who receive the packets to stay safe and to take care of yourselves and others around you. We shall stay united and survive the pandemic together.”
He told reporters during the presentation ceremony held at MBI headquarters earlier today (June 10).
Also present was the Mayor of Ipoh, Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin.
“BVH’s aid to the council’s ongoing MBI Prihatin programme is greatly appreciated in providing support to the needy in the city.
“This is MBI’s second overall collaboration with a corporate company in making a go of the programme, the other being Econsave.
“As of this moment, we’ve contributed around 750 food packs under MBI Prihatin.
“Hopefully, MBI and BVH are able to partake in more meaningful causes like this in the near future for the betterment of Ipohites,” he expressed.
