Honda Malaysia Donates RM 40,000 To 6 Charities In Melaka

This charitable contribution was done in collaboration with the Honda Malaysia Suppliers Club. 

Despite the factories and showrooms being shut during this MCO period, Honda Malaysia is nevertheless still hard at work in other more charitable areas. Such is evidenced by the fact that in collaboration with the Honda Malaysia Suppliers Club (HMSC), the Japanese automaker has donated nearly RM 40,000 worth of essential goods to six charitable causes in Melaka. 

Aimed to help alleviate the burden brought about by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and total lockdown imposed nationwide, the contributions by Honda Malaysia were made to six charity homes around the vicinity of its Melaka plant in Pegoh. These six locations are the Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Dan Warga Emas Alor Gajah, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Warga Emas Dan Anak Yatim Victory, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Harapan, Persatuan Kebajikan Sri Murni Insan Istimewa, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna and Pusat Jagaan Pertubuhan Villa Harapan. 

As for the items distributed to these charities meanwhile, Honda Malaysia has donated essential supplies such as rice, flour, eggs and cooking oil, as well as hygiene products comprising of disposable diapers, detergent and shower gel. Clothing for the adults, as well as colouring books and small toys for the children were also among the contributions made to these organisations on the 26th and 28th July 2021. 

Speaking further about these charitable endeavours, Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Ms. Madoka Chujo commented that this year has been a challenging year for Malaysia, with the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases and the country was placed under a nationwide lockdown since June. “The near total closure of the economic sectors has resulted in difficulties in sustaining livelihoods especially among the communities that need support, thereby bringing adverse impact on their everyday life,” she continued. 

She however expressed hope that the contributions from Honda Malaysia together with the aid from public donations and Social Welfare Department (JKM) can provide some relief to their burden as well as joy and hope to the residents of the homes. “We are also hopeful that the ongoing vaccination programme will help to curb the spread of COVID-19 and bring a safer environment for all of us in Malaysia,” added Ms. Chujo. 

PRESS RELEASE: Honda Malaysia (or the Company) has collaborated with Honda Malaysia Suppliers Club (HMSC) to extend support to Malaysians in need during this challenging time by helping the local communities in Melaka who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company and HMSC contributed close to RM40,000 worth of essential goods to six identified charity homes in Melaka to help alleviate the burden brought about by the pandemic and total lockdown as well as to uplift their spirit through this gesture. The six charity homes include old folks’ homes, welfare centres and orphanages. At the same time, this initiative also provided an opportunity for the Company and HMSC to mutually strengthen with relationship. 

Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Madoka Chujo said, “2021 continues to be a challenging year for Malaysia with the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, and the country was placed under a nationwide lockdown since June 2021. The near total closure of the economic sectors has resulted in difficulties in sustaining livelihoods especially among the communities that need support, thereby bringing adverse impact on their everyday life. We understand their situation and believe in order to overcome the challenges, we must move forward “Together As One” and help each other in every possible way.” 

“Striving to be a Company society wants to exist, we collaborated with HMSC in an initiative to help ease the situation especially for the elderlies, orphans, people with disabilities and the homeless. As the nation is implementing Phase One of National Recovery Plan (NRP) in several states, the charity homes are even more difficult to get aid from the public. Hence, this initiative enabled Honda Malaysia to reach out to them. We distributed essential supplies such as rice, flour, eggs and cooking oil, as well as hygiene products comprising disposable diapers, detergent and shower gel to charity homes in the vicinity of our Melaka plant. They also received additional items including clothing for the adults, as well as colouring books and small toys for the children.

We are also hopeful that the ongoing vaccination programme will help to curb the spread of COVID-19 and bring a safer environment for all of us in Malaysia,” Ms. Chujo added. 

The six identified charity homes are Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Dan Warga Emas Alor Gajah, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Warga Emas Dan Anak Yatim Victory, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Harapan, Persatuan Kebajikan Sri Murni Insan Istimewa, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Bhagawan Sri Ramakrishna and Pusat Jagaan Pertubuhan Villa Harapan.
