COMPUTER manufacturer Lenovo and international non-profit organisation Rise Against Hunger joined forces to fight hunger.
More than 100 Lenovo employees participated in a meal-packing event in conjunction with Lenovo Malaysia’s inaugural Make A Difference week.
Over 20,000 nutritious meals comprising rice, soy, and vegetables were packed at the event.
The dehydrated meals were distributed by Rise Against Hunger to local schools as well as other programmes promoting self-sufficiency.
“It is a privilege to work with Rise Against Hunger to provide aid to the needy. As a global business with operations all over the world, we believe that it is our responsibility to give back to the community in which we operate,” said Lenovo Malaysia country general manager Khoo Hung Chuan.
“I am pleased to see the effort and dedication demonstrated by everyone at Lenovo Malaysia’s first Make A Difference week.
“As Lenovo’s business continues to grow in Malaysia, I hope to see more such collaborations for the betterment of the local community,” he added.
Formerly known as the Motorola Mobility Foundation, Make A Difference week was first launched in 2017 by the Lenovo Foundation to coordinate worldwide corporate philanthropy and community volunteer projects.
This year, more than 28 cities across 26 countries in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America and Asia Pacific participated in the cause.
Lenovo Japan hosted an educational workshop in programming for students at its office while Lenovo India helped the visually impaired by creating audio recordings for educational purposes.
