TROPICANA Foundation, a charity arm of Tropicana Corporation Bhd, provided relief to five orphanages in Klang Valley.
Along with its agriculture arm, Purple Pumpkie and Greenhouse, the Tropicana team organised and handed over 1,100kg worth of daily essential goods, 380kg worth of fresh produce and 90 sets of school bags with school supplies for 90 orphans and abandoned children from the five homes.
These supplies will provide nourishment and support to the homes for a month.
Tropicana Group managing director Dion Tan conveyed his support for the ongoing charity initiatives of Tropicana Foundation and underlined the importance of providing relief to the underprivileged in society.
“The pandemic is a sobering experience, with so many facing challenges. We need to come together and extend our support to the communities.
“In conjunction with Malaysia Day, we want to put a smile on the faces of our fellow Malaysians.
“With our small donations, we want to provide nutritious meals to the children to keep them healthy and safe.
“We also presented the 90 children with our Tropicana Foundation care pack containing personal cutlery set, face masks, sanitiser, towel and clothes,” he added.
The essentials, fresh produce and bags were packed at Tropicana Golf and Country Resort which served as the collection centre with strict standard operating procedures observed at all times.
The participating orphanages were Persatuan Kebajikan Kasih Malaysia (Rumah Kasih), Pusat Jagaan Rumah Kesayangan (Rukesa), Pusat Jagaan Kasih Harapan, Rumah Sentuhan Budi and Pusat Jagaan Telaga Kasih Nur Muhammad.
