Kuala Lumpur, 7 April 2022– AmMetLife Insurance Berhad (AmMetLife) and MetLife Foundation are supporting Food Aid Foundation to provide food supplies for the B40 families affected by the recent flooding in Malaysia. Through the collaboration, over 4,320 flood victims in Kelantan, Terengganu, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur will have access to basic food supplies.
Commenting on the support being provided by the MetLife Foundation, AmMetLife CEO Lee Jiau Jiunn said: “A large number of households across Malaysia have been severely impacted by the recent flooding. Access to food and clean water has been a challenge for them. In times like these, it was important for us to step up and team up with Food Aid Foundation, to reach out to the affected families and help ease their burden by contributing vital food supplies.”
The Food Aid Foundation secures Halal-certified, surplus food from manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers. The Food Aid Foundation then works with local charity partners to distribute food to those who need it the most.
In thanking MetLife Foundation for the contribution, Founder of Food Aid Foundation, Rick Chee said: “This is our second collaboration with MetLife Foundation over the past two years and we are extremely grateful for the continued support. This much needed contribution will help us continue our work in feeding the underprivileged families who have been displaced or lost their livelihood due to the floods.”
