The premium automaker has been supporting four local NGOs since the first week of the Movement Control Order (MCO), to deliver food and basic essential grocery packs twice weekly to B40 families, refugees, and migrant communities within the Klang Valley.

The company is going into its next phase of the food relief effort with its multiple NGO partnerships in the hopes to sustain even more underprivileged families during the RMCO period. BMW Group Malaysia will continue to aid the four NGOs i.e. Tenaganita, Refuge for the Refugees, Liga Rakyat Demokratik and Dapur Jalanan KL, in their joint food relief initiative by providing logistics support to bolster the food distribution process.

The supplies were transported in several BMW Sports Activity Vehicles and sedans to families affected by the extended MCO and subsequently the Conditional Movement Control Order. In all, the group covered over 900 locations across Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

We continue to be inspired by all the volunteers who actively assist families who were affected by the troubled times and we hope we made a difference in terms of easing the burden and the challenges in the communities,” said Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications at BMW Group Malaysia.

Elise Arya Chen, Programme Officer at Tenaganita added, “The support and commitment we have received over the last two months from all of our partners, donors and volunteers have shown us the positive impact we can achieve when Malaysians come together to be a part of something much bigger than themselves. Even with the RMCO in place, marginalised communities in Malaysia will continue to face challenges. While this initiative was potentially going to conclude in the upcoming phase, we will remain committed to this food aid programme to meet the communities’ needs as long as we have the means to do so.”

Mohd Ezzuandi Ngadi, Representative of Dapur Jalanan KL also said, “This initiative has been crucial to sustaining more than 45,000 individuals across the Klang Valley since the MCO began, many of whom are single parents and senior citizens in the B40 community. Although we try to be hopeful that their daily earnings will pick up during the RMCO, this will not signify the end of our efforts.”
