Spreading positivity during difficult times
COVID-19 is a crisis that extends beyond health. Since the Movement Control Order (MCO) implementation, it continues to affect lives and livelihoods across the country. These unprecedented times have seen many people losing their jobs and struggling to put food on their tables.
Together We Make a Difference is a fundraising effort jointly initiated by KS Beh, Country Head of Vita Life Sciences Malaysia & Singapore and Nabiha Aimi, Director of MyVitaLab, with objectives to ease the burdens of the underprivileged communities who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and spread positivity to everyone around us during these difficult times.
In collaboration with VitaHealth, MyVitaLab and Yayasan Annor Bakti, this outreach effort aims to reach out to 500 families each week, throughout this MCO period. The proceed will be channelled to DHRRA’s COVIDCAREMY initiative to reach out to the marginalised families. Each family will receive a Bundle of Positivity consisting of non-perishable groceries, food items and face masks.
On top of that, through this initiative, we are also creating business opportunities for small and home-based entrepreneurs by purchasing the items from them.
