BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia Chief of Sales & Marketing, Danielle Maassen said: “In these challenging times, it is imperative that we come together to lend a helping hand wherever we can. Although we are looking at a gradual shift into the next phase of the National Recovery Plan, we want to continue providing support to these exceptional non-profit organisations who work hard to ensure that underprivileged families and individuals in the country do not go hungry.
“We have had the privilege of volunteering our time as an organisation with both Refuge for the Refugees and Empire Project for the last 18 months, and we are humbled to be able to contribute further to their relief efforts,” Maassen added.
