The MCO has uprooted most of us and spun our lives completely out of orbit. With small businesses and low-income families struggling to make ends meet, it’s becoming more difficult to stand idly and allow for stomachs to go hungry.
With that, many generous and proactive Malaysians have begun crowdfunding initiatives to help support those in need and Inbaraj Suppiah is one of them.
The founder and CEO of a boutique digital agency, Inbaraj is no stranger to networking. With the help of Adeline Chin, Dr. Neesa Amran, Ali and Renuga, he started the COVID-19 Grocery Aid for the Poor which is based in Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur.
Observing the current conditions of his neighbourhood, Inbaraj saw the need for a fundraiser to help ease the burdens of those who have either lost their job/source of income or those who are struggling with only one working family member.
Teaming up with MyGroser.com, the grocery packs (all worth RM100 and able to last for a week) will be distributed and delivered directly to the families that have been verified in need of aid. Here is a look at the varying items delivered:
We have now raised RM21,473 for #COVID19GroceryAid. We are now preparing to deliver our 4th batch, to 47 families. Help us provide groceries to more families by contributing to this campaign, only if you can afford to. Thank you so much for your support https://t.co/nhfbdScSCI pic.twitter.com/DOaNKx1KpW
