During this pandemic that is plaguing the world, Vit ’s has taken various noble initiatives to jointly help Malaysians affected by this pandemic.
Jejak Wira Merdeka Vit ‘s x Sinar Harian
In conjunction with this August independence month, Vit ’s has collaborated with Sinar Harian to run a program to help the “Wira Negara” who have served the country. Those who were once heroes to defend the homeland deserve our appreciation. This collaboration was carried out with the Veteran.my Association and the Malaysian Senior Citizens Caring Association to donate a number of food aid to national heroes affected during this pandemic.
“Thank you for giving Vit’s the opportunity to collaborate in this campaign. We are very proud to meet national heroes who have done so much for our country. “Without the services of our national heroes, we will not be able to enjoy all the pleasures in Malaysia,” said Lai Yeah Tat, Managing Director of Vit’s.
This is the most meaningful CSR for Vit’s because with program like this, we as Malaysians will appreciate the fighters who have defended the country.
Vit’s visited one of the former national heroes, Bohari @ Abu Bakar Razali, 62. He has left his career as a Tentera Laut Diraja Malaysia (TLDM). Bitter and sweet memories are still fresh in his memory. While on duty, he nearly fell victim to a bullet while patrolling the reef area.
Bohari is one of the country’s fighters who is honoured in this Jejak Wira Merdeka program.
He received some donation as well as food aid to ease his burden. He is now facing various health problems such as diabetes, asthma, kidney and chronic lung disease.
“With the current situation, I regularly commute to Sabak Hospital. Since after the “bypass” heart surgeries, I have always had difficulties in breathing. I want to use oxygen, but it is not cheap. So, I had to go to the hospital. During this Covid, I did not dare to go out. Almost a year sitting at home” he said.
Vit ‘s Makanan Managing Director, Lai Yaeh Tat described the Jejak Wira program as very meaningful to commemorate the heroes who have fought for national peace. Vit ’s has donated 400 packs of dried noodles to the Veteran.my Association and the Malaysian Senior Citizens Caring Association as a token of gratitude to Malaysians who have supported Vit’s from then until now, said Yaeh Tat who is the 2nd generation of Vit’s legacy.
“We hope this donation can ease the burden of national heroes in this time of pandemic,” he said.
