Malaysia's leading IT system integrator Integrated Global Solutions (IGS) is giving back this season with "Food For Change", an initiative focused on aiding underprivileged children and welfare homes in the community struggling due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
"None of us can survive in isolation - community is important as the air we breathe. Therefore, those of us in the position to give, should do so as much as we can," said Ang Poh Koon, CEO of IGS. "The ability to give is the power to inspire. Giving back to the community helps us cultivate the culture of giving and paying it forward."
IGS is a leading system integrator in Malaysia for the tech industry and a specialist in digital transformation. Since its founding in 2003, IGS has a proven track record of success in completing digital transformation and large-scale IT projects. Transforming businesses through digital innovation, IGS offers IT solutions, services and consultancy for enterprises of all sizes.
As this initiative is IGS's first collaboration with Yayasan Food Bank, the initiative aims to trigger change through food, ensuring no children within the community goes hungry. The items up for donation included cooking oil, rice, sugar, spices, sauces, noodles, and groceries.
Ang hopes that with this small act of kindness, it will go a long way to make a difference in the children's well-being. Among the beneficiaries of this initiative includes Pertubuhan Kebajikan Nur Hati, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Marry and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Taman Megah.
Yayasan Food Bank is an ideal partner in this mission. The foundation serves as a catalyst for minimising food waste while addressing the issue of rising living costs particularly for the B40 community. This collaboration is in line with the Yayasan Food Bank's Humanitarian Relief Mission wherein the foundation hopes to provide food assistance for charity homes that have been severely affected by the pandemic.
