MCA Ipoh Timur chief Datuk Thong Fah Chong presented a box of groceries from state welfare arm Yayasan Bina Upaya (YBU) to a girl from Vision Home Ipoh during The Star’s Do Good Day project on Oct 6.

The home for underprivileged children received a total of 25 boxes of groceries, which contained foodstuff such as rice, cooking oil and flour, worth about RM100 each.

Thong said he was proud to be involved in the meaningful community project, which is part of The Star’s Employee Volunteer Programme.

“The state government is always looking for ways to help the underprivileged through whatever means.

“The establishment of YBU and the distribution of the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia are a few examples of the initiatives carried out for this sole purpose,” he said.

The Do Good Day project on Oct 6 saw almost 430 staff volunteers from The Star taking part in making over 10 homes in the Klang Valley, Penang, Ipoh and Kuching.

Also present was home founder and chairman Rev Daniel Velloo.
