WHEN the going got tough, kindhearted individuals and corporate donors did not back out and continued to help the needy and less fortunate.
The caring side of Malaysians was again displayed in an effort by KF Scholars Club Malaysia (KFSC).
The initiative, dubbed “Gifts from the Heart 2021”, saw club members organising a food aid campaign for the benefit of some 100 residents of PPR Damansara Bistari in Jalan Harapan, Petaling Jaya.
Among the items given to the residents there included rice, sugar, cooking oil, canned sardines, baked beans, flour, packet drinks, milk, oat drink and dishwashing liquid.
KFSC president Datuk Teoh Eng Kee said the grocery items were donated by Kuok Foundation.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted many Malaysians, particularly the B40 group.
“In addition, thousands of residents were displaced from their homes following floods in several states.
“To help reduce the burden of those affected in these challenging times, we decided to give back to society, ” he said.
Teoh expressed hope that the small token of assistance would help alleviate some of the hardship faced by fellow Malaysians.
KFSC vice-president Chong Tse Wai said since the onset of the movement control order, club members had come together to raise funds and purchase items to be given out to the poor.
“We have been distributing bread to a number of public housing schemes around the Klang Valley.
“Our members will continue to help out, ” he said.
Chong added that another objective of the club was to provide a platform for members to serve society, particularly on charity and community service programmes and complement activities organised by Kuok Foundation.
The club was registered with the Registrar of Societies on May 25,2007.
