The Singapore High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, in partnership with Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor and Selangor Youth Community, has contributed 600 food boxes worth RM30,000 to needy families in Selangor.
This collaboration is aimed at supporting those who are facing economic difficulties because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and Singapore High Commissioner to Malaysia Vanu Gopala Menon handed over the food boxes to representatives from six community organisations based in Selangor at the Singapore High Commission.
The food boxes will be delivered to beneficiaries in Sungai Buloh, Puchong, Klang, Selayang and Gombak from Nov 22 to 26.
Tengku Amir said, “I am very appreciative of the Singapore High Commission for its generous donation to the Selangor people during such a difficult time.
“I think now more than ever we have to work together to magnify the impact on the communities that we engage with.
“Thank you so much and I look forward to doing more collaborations and meaningful projects in the future together.”
Vanu said, “Malaysia and Singapore enjoy a close, multi-faceted relationship.
“Any issue that affects Malaysia will affect Singapore and vice versa.
“To borrow a peribahasa, as close neighbours, we must berat sama dipikul, ringan sama dijinjing.
“The Singapore High Commission sincerely hopes that our humble contribution today will go some way in lifting the burdens of our beneficiaries.”
