KUALA LUMPUR – A community can only prosper when every one of its members’ needs are met. Keeping this in mind, Petron Malaysia has initiated a series of activities under the theme ‘Berbuka Puasa with Petron Malaysia’ this holy month of Ramadhan. With sponsorships of more than RM1 million, the company hopes to touch those in most need during this very special time.
“Bubur Lambuk” distribution and “Berbuka Puasa” with Orphans and Asnaf (30 March 2023)
On 30 March 2023, Petron Malaysia retail service station dealers continued their annual tradition of distributing Bubur Lambuk to the community which began in 2016. Due to inflation, many families struggle to put food on the table. This year, 140 retail service stations dealers contributed to this initiative. 50 retail service station dealers and 30 employees joined hands and distributed 5,000 packets of Bubur Lambuk at Masjid Jamek, Kampung Baru.
The activity continued at night as orphans and asnaf were invited to the “Buka Puasa” event. Here, dealers sponsored required tools of trade to help three OKU entrepreneurs to work better. A carpenter with eyesight disability was presented with a laser cutter machine; a local food service provider with physical disability was given multipurpose cookers for his food business; and a lady who suffered from depressive disorder received a retort machine.
