Kuala Lumpur, 17th July 2021 – The Budimas Charitable Foundation has launched the NO HUNGRY CHILD CAMPAIGN – NO ONE SHOULD BE HUNGRY. Our aim was to help families, especially the B40 families whose incomes had been affected due to the Movement Control Order (MCO) imposed by the government to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Budimas was able to reach out to many families across the country and alleviate the burden these families are being forced to bear, especially those with school going children. Through this campaign, Budimas has been able to provide these families with daily household necessities such as rice, oil, sugar, flour, etc. Budimas also provided these families with healthcare items, toiletries, and essential items for children like milk powder and diapers.
Through the aid that was provided, Budimas hopes to ease the burden on these families. Till the campaign ended on early December 2021, Budimas has made contributions to Klang Valley, Perak, Melaka, Kedah, Kelantan, Pulau Pinang and Orang Asli Settlement. In total, Budimas was able to reach 9,001 families.
Besides that, to alleviate the burden to those in need, Budimas was able to reach out to families by providing foodbanks. Budimas was able to reach out to a few locations in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Johor, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Pulau Pinang, Perak, Kelantan and Kedah.
Through this foodbank, Budimas has been able to provide these families with daily household necessities such as rice, oil, sugar, flour, etc. Budimas also provided these families with healthcare items, toiletries, and essential items for children like milk powder and diapers.
Budimas has carried out this campaign and foodbanks in stages to other locations and states. Budimas hopes that through this campaign, we were able to decrease the tribulations faced by these communities. With the pandemic not yet showing signs of waning, we would like to urge the public to adhere to all SOPs put in place by the government. We need to play our part to curb the further spread of COVID-19.
‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’.
