Food and beverage manufacturer Nestle Malaysia has joined forces with nine local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to channel food donations.
The partners of the project are Development of Human Resources for Rural Areas, Empire Project, Happy Bank Crew, Hunger Hurts Malaysia, Insaf Malaysia, Kechara Soup Kitchen, Pertiwi Soup Kitchen, The Lost Food Project and Yayasan Food Bank.
This latest initiative is set to support more than 20,000 residents in the Klang Valley, including senior citizens, disabled individuals, single parents and lower-income families, as well as Orang Asli communities.
The company’s role is to help boost the supply of food banks and food distribution centres organised by the NGOs.
Nestle Malaysia Bhd chief executive officer Juan Aranols said, “As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented impact on everyone’s lives, it is important that we continue to support those in need.
“Hence, we will distribute critical food supplies, working together with our NGO partners, starting in Klang Valley and progressively covering other parts of the country, such as Sabah, Johor, Negri Sembilan, Pahang and Kelantan.”
This effort is the latest in a constant flow of initiatives the company has driven to support the community.
After fulfilling its pledge to contribute RM15mil to support Malaysians during the pandemic in 2020, the company has further committed a total of RM7.5mil in contributions to date in 2021.
Additionally, it launched a communication campaign encouraging all Malaysians to join the fight and stop Covid-19 by getting vaccinated without hesitation.
Supporting this, from now until Sept 22, Nestle will give away free e-wallet vouchers worth RM500,000 to those who are registered for vaccination. Selected participants will also have the opportunity to win prizes and give recognition to their nominated frontliners in a special TV tribute.
“The National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme continues to be the key cornerstone to win the battle against the pandemic.
“Nestle Malaysia fully supports the vaccination roll-out and we hope this reward will provide a further small incentive for everybody to get vaccinated,” he added.
Those who have registered for vaccination via the MySejahtera application, as well as those who have received their first or second vaccinations as reflected in their MySejahtera profile, will be eligible to submit an entry and stand a chance of winning one free RM20 e-wallet voucher for Lazada for Peninsular Malaysia residents, Boost for Sabah residents or Sarawak Pay e-Wallet for Sarawak residents, with a total of 25,000 vouchers up for grabs.
To participate, visit the campaign website to fill in the form and upload a screenshot of the vaccination registration page or digital certificate in the MySejahtera profile.
No product purchase is required to participate in this campaign and each participant is eligible to only one entry submission.
The campaign is open to everyone residing in Malaysia.
