When the pandemic of Covid-19 strike the whole world, the living of these people are further impacted, rendering the living condition of those helpless become even worst.
At Yayasan Pillar, we aim to help lessen the burden of these people in this tough time. As the sequel to our previous Friday Foodbank Program, Yayasan Pillar now extends out this help to these people under the program Friday Food Basket. Other than donating edible necessities, Yayasan Pillar also help these people to apply for help from relevant government agencies should they miss out the help opportunity from the government.
Thus far, few houses from Kampung Bintawa, Kampung Pulo Hilir, Kampung Sungai Midin and Kampung Semariang Batu Bentara had been visited and food baskets were handed out to them including other relevant help such as getting welfare assistance for them. Expect more houses to be visited in the coming future…
