PROPERTY developer IJM Land Bhd has set aside RM50,000 to assist families in Negri Sembilan affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Its senior general manager Datuk Hoo Kim See said the company launched its “Bantuan Baucar Sara Hidup” where it will give a RM100 voucher to 100 families every month from August until December.
“Many industries have been adversely affected following several movement control orders imposed since March last year which resulted in people losing their jobs.
“Since there are families in Negri Sembilan facing a similar situation, IJM Land has decided to come up with a campaign to help them during these trying times,” he said.
Hoo said IJM Land is working with N9 Faith Hope Love, a charity platform that provides support to the needy in the state, to look for families that needed help.
These people, he said, would include single parents and those who had been laid off.
He said each family would be given a RM100 voucher to shop at 99 Speedmart.
“We hope to provide temporary but sustained relief to them.
“This way, the recipients can also choose what they really need,” he said.
Hoo said IJM Land and N9 Faith Hope Love had already identified recipients for this month.
From September, those in need of aid can submit their application via Google Forms on the first day of each month.
The Google Forms link can be obtained through IJM Land’s Facebook at ijmlandseremban2 or N9 Faith Hope Love’s at n9.faith.hope.love
Hoo said as a property developer providing safe and comfortable homes for the people, this initiative also goes along with IJM Land’s motto “We Make Good Better”.
