Fraser & Neave Holdings Bhd (F&NHB), Malaysia's leading food and beverage company, kicked off an unforgettable Hari Raya Aidilfitri with an annual nationwide programme to support over 500 individuals and families from vulnerable communities, totaling over RM45,000 in contribution distributed.
The programme was conducted across the states, including Kuala Terengganu, Kota Bahru, Kuantan, Johor Bahru, Seremban, Penang, Ipoh, Klang Valley, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, and saw 70 F&N volunteers contributing over 170 hours to the community.
Through the programme, F&NHB also partnered with local organisations such as Glenmarie Golf and Country Club, Kota Permai Golf and Country Club, Johor Darul Ta'zim FC, TV Alhijrah, Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (JAIS) and Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (JAWI) to provide aid and necessities to children's homes, women and children's shelters, B40 and indigenous communities in the area.
Aside from that, the company reached out to respective beneficiaries to understand their specific needs, such as groceries and necessities. As a result, the company had also distributed Raya packets, rice, cooking oil, cereal, biscuits, canned milk, and diapers.
The programme was initiated in the spirit of sharing and caring to contribute to society. Moreover, the economic situation has yet to fully recover after two years of the pandemic that may have caused charity organisations struggle to get public funds to support their operations.
