KUALA LUMPUR: Giant, one of Malaysia’s leading best value retailers, has donated RM100,000 in cash to help families in Klang and surrounding areas to aid the community for post-flood recovery.
The contribution from Giant was handed over to MyKasih Foundation for immediate distribution to affected families through their MyKad.
Each family will receive RM100 to purchase food and essentials.
The floods have devastated a number of areas in Selangor, and the impacted areas are still recovering from it.
Even though the water levels have subsided, victims, especially the ones in Klang, are in urgent need of support in terms of food and healthcare essentials as they start to rebuild their lives.
Chief Executive Officer for DFI Retail Group Southeast Asia, Chris Bush said they were saddened by the damage the recent flood caused to the community, and their hearts go out to everyone whose loved ones, homes and livelihoods have been impacted.
“We hope that this contribution will be able to aid those affected with the means to quickly purchase the essentials needed.”
Bush said they would also like to take the opportunity to thank our Giant team members who have gone above and beyond in looking after our customers when the floods hit.
This flood has also significantly impacted a number of our Giant team members and we will be providing assistance to them and their families through financial aid, temporary accommodation and food and health essentials, he said.
“Our team members are the heart of our business, and we remain committed to supporting
them with what they need.
“These are challenging times, but we will continue, as we always have, to serve our community and team members as best as we can.”
