Convenience store chain provides essentials for food basket initiative


Santhara giving out aid to recipients during the drive-through presentation ceremony at Menara DBKL Tower 1 in Kuala Lumpur.

KK Super Mart has been entrusted with assisting Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the Federal Territories Ministry in providing essentials under a food basket programme to benefit 500 recipients affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Each recipient will receive rice, sugar, cooking oil, flour, rice vermicelli, instant noodles and soy sauce, among other items worth RM100.

In conjunction with Deepavali, 20 Indian recipients were the first to receive the aid at a drive-through presentation ceremony.

Each recipient was required to drive their car or ride their motorcycle to the lobby of Menara DBKL Tower 1 to receive the contribution.

This method is expected to continue with other recipients throughout the programme, to reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection in addition to complying with the standard operating procedures set by the National Security Council.

The event was attended by Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Santhara Kumar, ministry secretary-general Datuk Rosida Jaafar and KK Group of Companies founder and group executive chairman Datuk Seri Dr KK Chai.

Another charity initiative by the group was the Gerobok Muhibbah programme held at Masjid Jamek Kuala Lumpur.
