AS the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the livelihoods of those around us, many individuals have stepped forward to provide assistance to frontliners and those in need.

Scuba diving instructor Brian Moh Boon Leong said he felt the need to give back to the community when the movement control order was announced earlier this year.

“During this time, some friends also told me about the plight of individuals who approached them for help and these stories prompted me to offer assistance,” said the founder of ScubbaBuddyz Dive Station.

Moh connected with his friends to gather support for this cause.

“Their monetary assistance enabled us to purchase set meals from a restaurant for affected groups.

“The first batch of set meals was given to 100 volunteers at a vaccination centre in Shah Alam, Selangor, last month,” he said.

Moh said support for his initiative had since grown, where he and nine other individuals raised RM2,650.

“Our most recent initiative saw a total of 265 set meals distributed among frontliners at Hospital Ampang, an orphanage, an old folks home in Kuala Lumpur and families at a low-cost housing area in Titiwangsa whose breadwinners were in quarantine after contracting Covid-19.

“These donations are also done as a means of motivating our frontliners and the needy to persevere through these difficult times, and to remind them that they are always on our minds,” he added.

Moh also shared that as a precautionary measure, the meals were sent either through logistics or e-hailing service providers.

“We are still sourcing for donations to help our fellow Malaysians through this challenging period,” he said.
