7-ELEVEN Malaysia recently carried out its latest CSR initiative in collaboration with the start-up NGOHub, by answering the call for assistance

from a group of independent shelters impacted by the on-going pandemic nationwide.

With the government’s necessary call for a movement control order (MCO) in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, charitable organisations housing the elderly face even more challenges as their group is most at-risk, and lacks the necessary means to access essential supplies due to shortages.

7-Eleven Malaysia arranged for the distribution of hand sanitisers, multivitamin supplements, and antibacterial household cleaning products, as well as provided guidance pamphlets on hygiene and staying healthy during these challenging times to charitable homes for the elderly such as Pusat Jagaan Sri Mesra, Aiyide Old Folks Home, Tong Sim Senior Citizens Care, Persatuan Kebajikan Rumah Victory and Pusat Jagaan Warga Emas Husna Arrashid, among others, to alleviate the potential impact of the pandemic.

7-Eleven Malaysia general manager of marketing Ronan Lee said: “We are doing our part to bring relief and aid during these trying times to the disadvantaged communities that are most at risk, and we hope that the situation will improve for the better soon, and that our contribution will help in staving off the worst effects of the pandemic.”

He added: “Necessary precautions were taken at the supply handovers, with minimal personnel from both the recipients and our side, as well as minimal interaction with the supplies dropped off at the front gate of the respective homes.”

He advised the public to strictly adhere to the relevant authorities’ guidelines and instructions, think of their loved ones’ safety and health and practise social distancing as every person has a critical role to play in overcoming this pandemic.
