Honda Malaysia, together with Honda Malaysia Suppliers Club (HMSC) have extended their support to Malaysians in need during this challenging time heightened by the rapid increase of Covid-19 infected persons as well as economic lockdown.
Both parties contributed close to RM40,000 worth of essential goods to charity homes that include old folks’ homes, welfare centres and orphanages. Apart from uplifting their spirit and alleviating the burden brought about by the pandemic and total lockdown, the initiative also provided an opportunity for Honda Malaysia and HMSC to mutually strengthen their relationship.
The six recipients were:
- Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Dan Warga Emas Alor Gajah
- Pertubuhan Kebajikan Warga Emas Dan Anak Yatim Victory
- Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Harapan
- Persatuan Kebajikan Sri Murni Insan Istimewa
- Pertubuhan Kebajikan Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna
- Pusat Jagaan Pertubuhan Villa Harapan
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and CEO, Ms Madoka Chujo said, “2021 continues to be a challenging year for Malaysia with the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, and the country was placed under a nationwide lockdown since June 2021. The near-total closure of the economic sectors has resulted in difficulties in sustaining livelihoods especially among the communities that need support, thereby bringing adverse impact on their everyday life.”
She added that the company understands their situation and believe to overcome the challenges, Honda must move forward “Together As One” and help each other in every possible way. The essential goods included rice, flour, eggs, cooking oil as well as personal hygiene products such as disposable diapers, detergent and shower gel.
The children also received toys and colouring books while clothes were distributed to the adults. Chujo hopes the contributions from Honda Malaysia and HMSC, together with the aid from public donations and Social Welfare Department (JKM) can provide some relief to their burden as well as joy and hope to the residents of the homes.
Honda Malaysia has delivered the contributions to the six homes earlier this week, benefitting more than 300 people. Earlier this year, the company also distributed “Flood Safety Kits” to 500 families who were affected by the floods in Pekan, Pahang.
