Canon Marketing Malaysia (“Canon”) stepped up their effort to help the community with a joint contribution from its employees amounting to RM48,000 that would supply about 500 food-insecure households with essential food items across 6 states to help affected Malaysians.
The fundraising and food-gathering efforts were driven by their employees from the headquarters and 5 branch offices nationwide along with local non-profit organisations (NGOs).
Through the partnership of seven NGOs, food packages were distributed to struggling families in Selangor, Sabah, Sarawak, Pahang, Johor and Penang.
Canon Marketing Malaysia, CEO and President , Mr Andrew Koh, explained how important it is to give back to the community as it is part of Canon’s corporate philosophy “Kyosei”.
“Kyosei which means living and working together for the common good. It has been a challenging and devastating year, but I’m heartened to see our staff members embodying the Kyosei spirit by helping the community as one.
“Through this food distribution initiative, we hope it would alleviate the stressful situation for those who are in dire need of food. We would also like to extend our deepest gratitude to the local NGOs who helped to facilitate the food package distributions,” he said.
The items that Canon provided
As of yesterday, all families have received the food packages, which consist of rice, flour, sugar, cooking oil, vermicelli noodle, condensed milk, salt, coffee and tea, biscuits and eggs.
Aside from the food aid, the organization has also recently donated a multi-functional device (MFD) to Guru Shree Raghavendra Charity Home in Kulaijaya, Johor so children at the orphanage are furnished with the necessary learning materials.
MFD will help the children so they could easily make photocopies of textbooks and exercise notes to supplement with their e-learning.
