KUCHING: Malaysian favourite fastfood chain, McDonald’s Malaysia through Ronald McDonald’s House Charities Malaysia (RMHC Malaysia) has sponsored food items to about 200 frontline staff from the state Social Welfare Department (JKMS).

Its general manager Mohd Nasri Mohd Nordin said the food donation was to cheer up the frontliners who had been working hard and risking their lives during the evacuation of flood victims in Kuching recently.

“During this trying time, we have to remember the frontliners who are out there risking their lives to make sure the safety of the people is well-taken care of,” he told the New Sarawak Tribune earlier today.

He said because of them, the evacuation of the flood victims has been relatively smooth.

“Giving back to the communities has always been part of McDonald’s signature. This is our way of helping in our people to go through this difficult time together,” he added.

In addition, Mohd Nasri added that McDonald’s Malaysia and RMHC Malaysia had been distributing regular food delivery to 40,000 hospital frontliners and security forces since the implementation of the movement control order (MCO) period last year across the country.

“This effort is a nationwide call to herald the silent bravery of the frontliners and to leverage their spirit to keep fighting the pandemic,” he added.
