MRMA contributes RM100,000 vouchers to B40 affected by Covid-19

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 4): The Malaysian REIT Managers Association (MRMA) has donated RM100,000 worth of 99-Speedmart cash vouchers as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative.

The vouchers can be used to purchase essential goods to help alleviate the suffering of the B40 communities affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, the association said in a media statement today.

The CSR initiative has been planned in collaboration with ADUNs or MPs in Subang Jaya, Kampung Tunku, Balakong, Bandar Utama, Pandamaran, Klang, Dusun Tua Ulu Langat, Cheras, Batu and Lembah Pantai.

Most of the 23 MRMA members are also playing their roles individually and through their respective real estate investment trusts (REITs) by contributing either money or essential goods to the vulnerable groups and undertaking various CSR initiatives to support the underprivileged, the statement added.

“It is important that the MRMA holds to its core values during this pandemic by supporting our communities and improving lives... We welcome the recent lifting of the Enhanced Movement Control Order and hope the government can accelerate the reopening of the retail sector so we can continue to do our part and make a positive socio-economic impact to benefit Malaysians and contribute to the nation's recovery," said MRMA chairman Datuk Hisham Othman.
