GLOBAL payments technology company, Visa, has stepped forward to offer help in flood relief efforts by sending volunteers to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) headquarters in addition to providing financial aid.
Visa Malaysia employees took the afternoon off recently to volunteer their time to assist with the unloading, packing and sorting of supplies to be sent to flood-hit areas.
Together with Visa country manager for Malaysia, Ng Kong Boon, employees transported more than 400 boxes of critically needed goods and medical supplies, such as toothbrushes, cutlery and blankets.
“Our hearts go out to all the families who have lost their homes and possessions in the floods. At Visa, we believe it is important for us to contribute and give back to the community where we work and live in.
“Being able to help out in this volunteerism initiative is a humbling experience for all of us.
“We want to support the community as much as we can so that they can return to their everyday lives as quickly as possible,” said Ng.
