Kuala Lumpur, 6 July 2021 – Malaysian AEON Foundation (MAF) continues to move forward with the AEON Bersamamu programme in fulfilling its mission to help the people in need, especially during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
AEON Bersamamu is one of the various community assistance programmes implemented by MAF nationwide. Launched on 1 February 2021, AEON Bersamamu aims to help alleviate the burdens faced by families whose livelihoods are affected due to loss of income caused by the pandemic. The contribution of essential food items through AEON Bersamamu is the effort by MAF to support their wellbeing in tough economic times.
Through AEON Bersamamu, MAF has touched the lives and given hopes to 2,700 families, whose main breadwinners were part of the creative works (KARYAWAN), aviation and hospitality industries. Their income sources were adversely affected thus the support extended. To date, MAF has spent RM700,000 for the activation of AEON Bersamamu.
Following the recent announcement by the Government of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) – SOP Phase 1, in the effort to flatten the pandemic curve and achieve the set threshold value, it is expected that many more people will be affected from this situation.
Datin Noryahwati Mohd Noh, President of MAF said, “In this regard, Malaysian AEON Foundation further spreads its wings to continue assisting those who are in need, in collaboration with non-governmental organisations (NGOs). This is part of our commitment in the effort to provide support for the wellbeing of the community. The AEON Bersamamu programme will continue under the community sustainability initiative Sayap Bagimu.”
“For Phase 1 of the programme, Malaysian AEON Foundation will contribute 1,000 boxes of essential food items worth RM100 each. Subsequently, for Phase 2, an additional 2,000 boxes of essential food items worth RM100 each will be distributed to affected families nationwide.”
“Malaysian AEON Foundation is committed in making AEON Bersamamu a success under community sustainability initiative Sayap Bagimu, with an allocated fund of RM300,000. We are always focused on the development and wellbeing of the community within our ecosystem. Indeed, many of us have been affected by this pandemic and we are so grateful to be able to help. It is our hope that this assistance will bring some joy and hopes to them,” said Datin Noryahwati.
The AEON Bersamamu community assistance programme under the community sustainability initiative Sayap Bagimu is targeting to extend the contribution to 3,000 families nationwide.
The public is invited to support the programme by sharing the sustenance for a sustainable community. To those who are interested to help to ease the burden of those in need, please visit www.aeonfoundation.my today.
