Since the onset of COVID-19, it has led to the exacerbation of food insecurity faced by vulnerable communities. The pandemic has driven up food insecurity, depriving many children of low-income families of access to nutrition, which is essential for their growth.
GCB Cocoa recognises the severity of this issue. We have thus extended our help to as many children and households as possible by supporting the COVID-19 Food Assistance Program initiated by the Rimbun Foundation
. In October 2021, we donated 750 units of 3-in-1 Chocolate Drink (540g) to 15 schools in Klang Valley, Malaysia, hoping that our donations will spark joy and make a difference in these students’ lives, one drink at a time.
Rimbun Foundation has been actively helping to facilitate donations to 15 schools in Klang Valley, Malaysia. Rimbun Foundation seeks to improve the standard of education among children from impoverished and underprivileged families studying in selected public schools in Malaysia.
GCB Cocoa is committed to help alleviate world hunger and ensuring that no child goes hungry. We will continue to make a difference, through encouraging our employees to volunteer and provide donations – in kind or monetary, to assist these vulnerable communities during the pandemic and beyond.
