MRCA and DSAM Join Forces to Aid More Than 8000 Families


In response to distressed Malaysians whose livelihood have been  disrupted by the on-going MCOs, Malaysia Retail Chain Association (MRCA) and Direct Selling  Association of Malaysia (DSAM) have joined hands to raise emergency funds to purchase  essential food supplies for those in desperate need. With the aim of raising RM500,000 from this  initiative, food boxes are being distributed by both associations to more than 10,000 families within  the Klang Valley and its adjacent vicinities since 3rd July 2021.  

To date, the food boxes have reached 2000 families at 9 distribution locations including PPR  Pantai Ria, Kuala Lumpur; PPR Sri Sabah, Kuala Lumpur; Kampung Tasek Permai, Ampang  Jaya; Kampung Labu Lanjut, Sepang; Kampung Baru Sungai Chua, Kajang; Salak Selatan Baru,  Kuala Lumpur; PPR Seri Nilam, Ampang; PPR Hiliran Ampang, Kuala Lumpur; and PPR Pandan  Mewah, Ampang. More locations are currently being finalised for on-going distributions. In these  events, each recipient will receive a food box containing rice (5kg), instant noodles, vermicelli  noodles, sardines, baked beans, malt-based chocolate drink powder and biscuits.

Ms Shirley Tay, President of MRCA added that “Many of our members are badly hit by this  pandemic. Some cannot sustain beyond 3 months with their current cash flow positions. However,  we believe that this collaboration with DSAM will be at least help the less fortunate as every  contribution would lessen the suffering of the rakyat” 

During this difficult time, we understand many families are struggling to put food on the table.  With this initiative, we are working alongside our retail partners from MRCA to help the affected  families. Through this small gesture, we hope to help them to get through these challenging  times,” said Datuk Tan Chong Guan, President of DSAM.
