SABAH is one of the states hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In view of the seriousness of the situation there, Buddhist organisation Persatuan Soka Gakkai Malaysia (SGM) donated RM20,000 to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society’s (MRCS) Food Basket Programme.

SGM’s donation will enable 400 food baskets to be given to the underprivileged, who are most impacted by the pandemic and movement control order.

SGM Sabah Zone chief Lam Choi Sing presented the donation to Red Crescent Sabah chairman Datuk Asnan Yunus Chung at the SGM Sabah Culture Centre.

SGM said the donation was made to support the efforts by MRCS.

The association, which promotes peace, cultural understanding, social welfare and education, hopes the contribution will help relieve the stress and burden of those most affected.
