KUALA LUMPUR, May 17 (Bernama) --  Allianz Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Malaysia), via its corporate social responsibility (CSR) Allianz4Good, supported several non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the ‘Raya Bermakna Bersama Allianz Malaysia’ initiative for underprivileged and vulnerable communities across the nation.

Allianz Malaysia in a statement said that the initiative has involved a series of engaging activities, including monetary aid contributions to the NGOs to purchase food and groceries for the community in need, new festive clothes for the children and providing volunteering opportunities for the Allianz Malaysia employees.

“Allianz Malaysia provided monetary aid to Cahaya Society, an NGO that empowers marginalised communities, to support the distribution of essential food items to 885 families from vulnerable communities in Sandakan, Sabah,” the statement read. 

Allianz Malaysia also provided financial aid to eight NGOs in Klang Valley, Sabah, and Kelantan to help them purchase groceries and essentials during the festive season.

Furthermore, the company is providing monetary aid to purchase new Raya clothes for 110 underprivileged children in the Chow Kit area with support from NGO Buku Jalanan Chow Kit. 

According to the statement, about 10 Allianz Malaysia employees volunteered with Silent Teddies Bakery, a social enterprise empowering individuals with hearing impairments to bake 150 jumbo chocolate chip cookies and 20 boxes of sea salt chocolate chips, as well as making 60 beautifully labeled cookie boxes.

Allianz Malaysia donated monetary aid to Kenchara Soup Kitchen, an NGO providing meals and support services that distributes 1,828 hot meals to homeless and urban poor in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh, and Johor.

“A total of 36 Allianz Malaysia’s employees from Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Ipoh branches volunteered to pack and distribute the meals to the individuals in need,” the statement read.

The head of Allianz4Good Ng Siew Gek in the same statement said that the initiative started in March during Ramadan and continued until April in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

“Allianz Malaysia hopes to keep this spirit of Hari Raya Aidilfitri to help the underserved community. We partnered with NGOs who share the same mission as us and provided our colleagues with the opportunities to volunteer in this initiative with the aim of not just bringing joy to the underserved during this festive season but also to create a more inclusive and united society,” he said.
