For the second phase, HEINEKEN Malaysia partnered with MyKasih Foundation, a charity organisation in charge of driving welfare distribution to underprivileged families and community leaders. Funds for the beneficiaries are channeled directly into their MyKad to be used at selected supermarkets. Through this arrangement, each beneficiary will get to purchase 10 categories of food items for the next month, which includes rice, infant formula, canned food such as sardines and tuna, eggs, cooking oil, and biscuits.
Mr Arulmani a/l Kaniappan, Joint Management Board Block 1 Desa Mentari Community Leader, added, “At Desa Mentari, many of us are severely impacted by the MCO as we live on a day-to-day basis. Our community is quite large, a lot with big families, so although we try to support each other as much as we can, it is really heartwarming to have HEINEKEN Malaysia step in and offer us so much. We are grateful for the help we have received as every bit counts.”
