Care United Johor Bahru (CUJB) finally held their food aid distribution after the nation was bound to the Movement Control Order (MCO) back in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 100 families from Kampung Skudai Kiri were eager to convene at the village community hall, lining up early in the morning to both meet the 12 volunteers of CUJB and receive their care package.
CUJB’s third food aid for this year saw a few adjustments made to follow guidelines and standard operating procedures (SOP) in order to keep both crowd and volunteers safe. Among the adjustments made was to allow only 20 people in the hall at any one time inclusive of the volunteers as well as face masks-wearing requirements, hand sanitising and temperature screening of each family representative prior to entering the hall.
The food aid hamper valued at RM55 per recipient contained everyday essentials such as rice (5kg pack), canned sardines, evaporated milk, cooking (1kg), Milo (1kg) and 2 packs of rice vermicelli. CUJB allocated a sum of RM55,00 for the food aid despite receiving lesser funds in which CUJB’s president, Datuk Florence Goh extended their gratitude to Q & Q supermarket in Taman Molek for helping them with the supply as well as packing them in bags for ease of distribution.
“I hope that corporate partners will continue to support the community work done by CUJB throughout the year and welcome any contributions from any bodies and individuals, said Datuk Florence.
