IN THE spirit of Ramadan, and as part of Nestle Malaysia’s RM15mil contribution towards Covid-19 relief efforts, Maggi is providing nourishment to more than 120,000 people during the fasting month.

It has been a tradition over the years for Maggi to distribute its version of bubur lambuk, the savoury porridge given out as a buka puasa meal.

This year, more than 120,000 bowls of Maggi bubur lambuk would be distributed along with 20,000 Nestle food and beverage packs to B40 families and students, residents of orphanages and welfare homes, healthcare practitioners as well as other frontliners including the police and armed forces.

Nestle (M) Bhd (Maggi) business executive officer Geetha Balakrishna said they were privileged to be able to continue providing nourishment.

“While this is an annual initiative for Maggi during the fasting month, this year it is all the more important for us to give back to those in need as well as show appreciation to frontliners who have been working so hard, ” she said.

Nestle (M) Bhd chief executive officer Juan Aranols said this was part of its commitment to support vulnerable communities under the Nestle Cares Covid-19 relief programme.

“Ramadan is a time for compassion and generosity. We hope that this effort by Maggi will make a positive difference as will the other initiatives under our different brands.”

Reflecting the company’s aim to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future, Nestle will continue to do its part to help Malaysians in these difficult times through various initiatives.
