LEADING Korean food distribution company KMT Jaya Sdn Bhd is assisting communities affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in Melaka.
KMT Jaya handed over RM50,000 to Melaka City State Poor Families Welfare Association (PKKBM) in Ayer Keroh.
The monetary assistance was given under KMT Jaya’s “Back to Communities” initiative that aimed to help the lower-income group by providing essential food items.
KMT Group of Companies chairman Matthew Lee said Melaka was among the states the company had rendered assistance to during these challenging times.
“This is part of our corporate social responsibility to continue supporting and assisting communities in need,” he said.
In addition, KMT Jaya had sponsored a Korean water purifier worth more than RM35,000 for PKKBM.
“We are committed to helping the community have access to better quality food and lead a healthier lifestyle through multiple channels,” said Lee.
He said KMT Jaya wanted to do its part to ensure good quality water reached the segments of society that needed it.
KMT Jaya also acknowledged the efforts and sacrifices of frontliners.
Lee said some RM100,000 in the form of cash and kind including instant noodles, mineral water, face masks, hand sanitiser and gloves had been distributed to them.
