The haze, which started early September, had resulted in unhealthy levels of Air Pollutant Index (API) readings in several parts of the country over the last few weeks.
Those mainly affected were young children, senior citizens and those with respiratory and heart conditions.
At the height of the haze, a team at 7-Eleven had organised the distribution of N95 particulate respirator masks, eye drops, vitamin and mineral supplements as well as healthy snacks to selected children’s homes and old folk’s homes.
They included Sai Pandian Orphanage, Pertubuhan Pusat Kebajikan Destiny, Rumah Anak Yatim Al-Munirah, GT Community Care and Persatuan Thalasemia Selangor.
“We did our part to bring relief and aid to the disadvantaged communities who were most at risk.
“We hope that our contribution had help stave off the worst effects of the haze,” said 7-Eleven marketing general manager Ronan Lee.
