Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) presented food baskets to frontliners on duty at the vaccination centre (PPV) in Management and Science University (MSU) Medical Centre, Shah Alam for their dedication to duty.
Then acting Shah Alam mayor Mohd Rashidi Ruslan presented the 40 food baskets to the PPV staffers in a simple ceremony.

The food baskets, valued at RM50 each, contained basic necessities such as flour, cooking oil, rice and sugar.
MBSA also contributed 10 sets of baby food and nutrition items.
“The food baskets serve as a token of appreciation from MBSA towards the commitment and dedication shown by PPV frontliners in carrying out their duties to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic within the community, particularly for those residing under MBSA’s administration.
“This initiative is a continuation of MBSA’s efforts of ‘leaving no one behind’, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), ” said MBSA Corporate and Public Relations Division head Shahrin Ahmad in a statement.
“The concept covers issues such as social and economic development including poverty, hunger, health and social justice.
“It also takes into account SDG goals such as ending poverty in all forms, as well as making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, empowered and sustainable.”
