Malaysian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have came together to prepare free lunches for the B40 group who have been affected by the current Movement Control Order (MCO).

A team of 60 volunteers have been busy cooking more than 1,000 wholesome vegetarian meals per day at a large kitchen in Puchong and delivered them to the needy under Project Mother, set up by Tara Foundation in partnership with Pure Life Society, Global Hindu Federation, United Malaysian Hindu Voice, Malaysia Hindu Dharma Mamandram, and Malaysia Narayani Foundation.

Malaysia Hindu Dharma Mamandram vice president Vesuanathan Suppiah told Malay Mail that several orders have come in from individuals living in public housing project (PPR) flats across the Klang Valley.

He added they felt compelled to lend a helping hand as many in the B40 category have been struggling to stay afloat since the MCO kicked in as some of them are daily wage earners, shutdown means no income for them.

“Besides delivering the food to them, we are also planning to send groceries and provisions to those who need it,” said Vesuanathan.

As the movement control order has been extended to April 14, Project Mother said they will do their best to continue lending a helping hand to the needy.
