Data technology specialist Fusionex is lending its support to Masala Wheel’s socially impactful campaign “Food Without Borders” by sponsoring meals for people who are struggling due to the restrictions placed by the Movement Control Order (MCO).
Through this “Pay It Forward” initiative, Fusionex has sponsored balanced meals that are being delivered by Masala Wheels’ volunteers to identified beneficiaries. This social campaign will aid those who found themselves in this unfortunate situation, including marginalized communities, at-risk groups, the urban needy, university students and welfare homes, among others.
“We want to thank Fusionex for supporting our social enterprise initiative in reaching out to the vulnerable communities. By supporting this campaign, Fusionex has contributed towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, where our goal is to ensure that there is no poverty, establish zero hunger, provide decent work and economic growth, and forming meaningful partnership to achieve these goals,” said Masala Wheels Co-Founder Kuhan Pathy.
To date, the initiative has raised over 13,000 meals through 254 contributors to recipients from different groups including medical front-liners, enforcement officers, underprivileged households, welfare homes, refugees, homeless and university students. The meals provided by Masala Wheels consist of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, with the food differing daily based on the number of orders.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has casted a very long shadow and has disrupted the livelihood of the many, many people, hitting hardest at the most vulnerable and needy among us. In the spirit of humanity, compassion and solidarity with our fellow Malaysians, Fusionex stands with Masala Wheels to help those affected by this terrible crisis. We are humbled to be playing a small part in supporting a great campaign with a noble cause that provides sustenance to the underprivileged and aid them when they need it the most. This is the least we can do as a fellow human being” said Fusionex Group CEO Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh.
