The recipients picked up the aid, including rice and cash, via a drive-through at Ashby Flats in Greentown, Ipoh.
Branch chairman Zahari Abd Murad said many people, especially its members, were impacted as they could not operate during the MCO.
“We have about 780 members and about 200 have already received aid.
“We will give out more aid if there are sponsors from the public or government,” he added.
One of the recipients, Siti Rohana Abdul Manan from Gunung Rapat, said she could not open her roadside kuih stall due to the MCO.
“I could not work and this has affected my family,” she said.
