KUCHING: The Maxim E-hailing Kuching division had started a charity event to help families adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Its division head Nicholason Encharang said fundraising was arranged by their drivers to purchase food and drinks.

“Due to the pandemic, many businesses stopped operating, so many of them lost their jobs. Hence, we decided to help them,” he said.

According to him, their drivers gave food to eight families and enforcement officers stationed at 10 checkpoints in Kuching.

“Of course we did not forget the enforcement officers for their hard work. The food that we gave them is a token of appreciation,” he said.
