Budimas Charitable Foundation (BCF) has distributed groceries to 50 families in the B40 group at the Batu Muda People’s Housing Project (PPR) in Kuala Lumpur.
The event was launched by BCF chairman Tunku Datuk Yaacob Khyra along with the foundation’s principal officer Anne Rajasaikaran.
Prior to this, the foundation launched its Budimas Soup Kitchen Project, which was mainly to support the homeless and underprivileged in Kuala Lumpur by providing them with meals and daily necessities.
With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and movement control order, this charity campaign seeks to ease the burden of poor communities, as it also raises awareness of the importance of helping the poor.
Besides the distribution of groceries at PPR Batu Muda, the foundation donated essential goods to 100 SK La Salle (2) Jinjang pupils and their families in Kuala Lumpur.
This project is meant to combat poverty and help those hit hardest by the pandemic.
“Providing supplies and groceries to the underprivileged will likely become essential again soon with the ongoing pandemic.
“We would like to request our fellow Malaysians to be more supportive of one another and volunteer to get more struggling families back on their feet, ” said Anne.
