OVER 5,000 packed meals were given to more than 4,000 needy people around Johor Baru in conjunction with World Hunger Day.

Lions Club of Johor Jaya president Helen Chong said the group collaborated with several partners to distribute the meals and bring some relief to the less fortunate.

“The initiative, which aimed to raised awareness about hunger and support the vulnerable, was a success thanks to the collective effort of volunteers and partner organisations.

“We held the event at Aeon Mall Bandar Dato’ Onn in Johor Baru, which saw an impressive turnout of volunteers,” she added.

Chong said the programme benefitted 4,070 people.

She said the food distribution was organised by Lions Club of Johor Jaya jointly with other non-government organisations and private bodies.

She also thanked the community for their response to the initiative.

“We are overwhelmed by the support and dedication shown by our members, volunteers and partners.

“This event highlights the strength of our community and our shared commitment to making a positive impact,” she added.

Chong said the hunger relief project was part of Lions Club of Johor Jaya’s ongoing efforts to address food insecurity as well as to support those in need.

“The club continues to plan and execute various community projects, reinforcing its mission to serve and uplift the community.

“Together, we have made a significant difference in the lives of many individuals and families,” she noted.
