MYMA & Free Makan Reaches Out To B40 Communities

BAC’s Community Partner, MYMA (My Young Mind Association), who has been working with underprivileged families since 2013, set out on 4th, 6th, 17th and 22nd June, to distribute grocery packs to B40 families and underprivileged communities. Under the Free Makan ‘Stop Hunger – Help Feed 10,000 B40 Families’ campaign, MYMA visited 21 locations to distribute grocery packs filled with essentials that can last a family for 2 weeks. 

Each family received a bag of rice, cooking oil, flour, beehoon, instant noodles, sardines, sugar, salt, potatoes, onions, garlic and cream crackers. Children from these families were also treated to a goodie bag containing Tiger biscuits, Toblerone, Cadbury chocolates and Twisties.

From single mothers whose husbands were drug addicts, some with spouses still in prison, to daily wage earners like sweepers and labourers earning as little as only RM10 to RM20, who have lost their source of income, sustaining themselves and their families  has become a struggle. Free Makan and MYMA hopes that with this, at least families with little or nothing at all can sleep peacefully at night having to not worry about their next meal.

All recipients expressed their gratitude, with many in tears as they thanked the generous sponsors.

Below are the recipients under MYMA:
