KOTA KINABALU: Some 150 families in Labuan were given festive food supplies by Yayasan PETRONAS under its “Memacu Kehidupan: Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2023” programme.

The programme provides basic necessities and festive food products such as glutinous rice, coconut milk, rendang paste and peanut sauce.

In a statement on Tuesday (April 18), the company said this year’s distribution also includes gift cards from PETRONAS Dagangan Bhd for the beneficiaries to purchase fuel or Kedai Mesra items at its stations.

The distribution of Memacu Kehidupan items at PETRONAS Chemicals Methanol Sdn Bhd in Labuan recently was attended by company president and group CEO Datuk Tengku Muhammad Taufik.

Sabah and Labuan PETRONAS head Siti Ayu Abdul Wahab said that through the Memacu Kehidupan initiative, Yayasan PETRONAS extends necessities aimed at improving the well-being of the community.

"We understand that the festive season can be particularly difficult for the less fortunate and Yayasan PETRONAS is committed to doing its part to make the season a little brighter for these people and families.

“Our Memacu Kehidupan programme is designed to provide not just food, but to also bring about a sense of community and support during the festive season,” Siti Ayu said.

The programme, supported by the Social Welfare Department, is in line with the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry’s Bakul Rahmah initiative.
