Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) presented food baskets to some 80 families in the B40 community who have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and lost their sources of income.
The recipients comprised 50 families from Seri Nipah Flats and nine from Seri Kayan Flats, both located in Taman Pinggiran USJ, as well as 21 families in Batu Tiga.
All three residential projects are under MBSJ’s purview.
Subang Jaya mayor Noraini Roslan presented the food baskets to the residents, then made a brief visit to Seri Nipah Flats’ community garden.
“The special thing about these two flats residences is that both are adopted by the mayor as pangsapuri angkat (adopted flats),” said MBSJ Corporate and Strategic Management Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid in a statement.
“MBSJ is overseeing these flats at the moment as part of the council’s Flats Adoption project, following the death of Zone 5 councillor Nor Liyana Yahaya who had adopted Seri Nipah and Seri Kayan,” he added. The project is aimed at rejuvenating and uplifting B40 community.
At a separate event, non-governmental organisation Pertubuhan Kebajikan Melayu, Cina, India dan Lain-Lain (MCIO) delivered contributions in the form of food pastes and coffee sachets to MBSJ staff.
“This is in recognition of our frontliners’ commitment in ensuring the continuance of council services throughout the enhanced movement control order period in Selangor,” said Azfarizal.
“The contribution is also a corporate social responsibility initiative by MBSJ’s synergy partner.”
