While most of us have been home over the past weeks due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), BMW Group Malaysia along with other NGOs namely Tenaganita, Refuge for Refugees, Liga Rakyat Demokratik and Dapur Jalanan KL has had their hands tied.
Together they delivered more than 5,800 food and essential grocery packs to refugees, migrant and B40 families in the Klang Valley area. BMW Group Malaysia’s dealers, Quill Automobiles and Ingress Auto, were responsible for providing the logistics in the form of 10 BMW vehicles to support the delivery process.
Among the basic necessities supplied were rice, eggs, flour, cooking oil and canned food which were delivered to families even during the Movement Control Order (MCO) duration across 460 locations in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
To maintain the safety and hygiene of the volunteers, they were required to put on gloves, masks and use hand sanitisers while the beneficiaries were given hand sanitisers to disinfect before and after receiving the supplies.
“In the spirit of #KitaJagaKita, we at BMW Group Malaysia are very humbled to be part of this mission with Tenaganita, Refuge for the Refugees, Liga Rakyat Demokratik and Dapur Jalanan KL to provide aid to the underpriviliged during this challenging time. We are just grateful to be able to help out and be part of the volunteers who continue to actively assist families who are affected by the MCO. They are an inspiration to us and as a nation, it is crucial for all of us to lend a helping hand to those in need, now more than ever,” said BMW Group Malaysia, Head of Corporate Communications, Sashi Ambi.
