Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (KLK) and the Ipoh City Council (MBI) collaboratively contributed food packs to 237 families at Waller Court Flats yesterday (June 25).
This collaboration was carried out under the corporate social responsibility programme of KLK and MBI Prihatin (MBI Cares).
“Many are impacted and as a responsible corporate company, we step forward to provide contribution in order to reduce the burden of the needy,” he explained.
Lee, together with Mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin @ Md Daud, presented the contribution to three resident representatives of the Waller Court Flats in front of the MBI Meeting Hall.
Since the movement control order (MCO) implemented in March last year, KLK has collaborated with various parties including non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to aid those affected by the pandemic.
“We have presented aid to over 10,000 people around Klang Valley, Ipoh, Negeri Sembilan and Sabah, especially those from B40 families,” he said.
Besides residents at Waller Court Flats, KLK also presented food packs to 125 students from B40 families of Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Mutiara, Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Raya and Sekolah Kebangsaan Guru Kalgidar throughout MCO 3.0.
“We also collaborated with Iman Ikatan Mabahhah Muslimin (IMAN) to present the same contribution to 100 families around Chemor and Manjoi besides taking the initiative to aid nine welfare homes including elderly care centres and orphanages,” he added.
Meanwhile, Rumaizi stated that MBI will continue cooperation with corporate companies in order to help the needy families especially around Ipoh.
“This is the first collaboration between MBI and KLK. It is hoped that this collaboration will be continued in the future,” he shared.
Present at the programme were MBI Council Member for Zone 8 (Kepayang), Mohammad Iskandar Abdul Rahman and Administration Director (Plantations) of KLK, Har Wai Ming.
