Preparing Families For The Storm Ahead, Nestlé Malaysia Donates RM200,000 To MRCS To Support Relief


With the aim to aid the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) in their preparation to support families likely to be affected by the monsoon season, Nestlé Malaysia has donated RM200,000 to the organization.


This contribution to MRCS includes a RM100,000 cash donation to purchase family hygiene kits consisting of a months' worth of toothbrushes, toothpaste, detergent, towels, disposable shavers, sanitary pads, toilet rolls, soap, and a water bucket and a water scoop.


Alongside the hygiene kits, Nestlé also contributed RM100,000 worth of Nestlé food products to be allocated by MRCS to vulnerable communities.


Speaking on the donation, Mr. Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad expressed the company’s gratitude to Malaysians for their continuous support.


“We feel very obliged to give back some of that love by being actively involved in relief efforts to help families in need. The Malaysian Red Crescent Society does an extraordinary job in assisting vulnerable communities and we want to support their preparation efforts ahead of the upcoming monsoon season.”

“Indeed, we know that the monsoon season, and the associated risk of floods, is often a challenging period for many families living in flood-exposed areas. We are inspired by the work of MRCS to protect and serve the needs of these vulnerable communities. Ours is a small contribution to these efforts, and we would like to invite other organisations and Malaysians to contribute to strengthen this solidarity network,” he added.


Over the years, Nestlé Malaysia has also collaborated in various initiatives with MRCS including regular food & beverage supplies during the monsoon seasons, and COVID-19 relief efforts for frontliners and affected communities during the pandemic. The company had previously contributed RM1.2 million to MRCS for the upgrade of emergency medical equipment in their ambulances in 2020.


“We are pleased to receive this generous donation from Nestlé and we are grateful that they are taking this meaningful step as a responsible business to support Malaysians,” said Yang Teramat Mulia Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz binti Almarhum Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, Chairperson of MRC.


“Indeed, providing care and relief assistance to at risk and vulnerable communities requires collective effort, and Nestlé’s contribution will certainly help us achieve this goal.”
