KUALA LUMPUR, 15 November 2018 – Affin Hwang Capital recently joined forces with Rise Against Hunger, a non-profit organization with a vision of ending world hunger by 2030, to organize a meal packaging event. Held in conjunction with the 7th annual Affin Hwang Capital Conference Series 2018, the event saw more than 100 registered volunteers come together to package meals worth RM 20,000 sponsored by Affin Hwang Capital.
Led by Yang Berbahagia Datuk Maimoonah Hussain, Group Managing Director, Affin Hwang Capital together with Yang Berbahagia Datuk Yasmin Mahmood, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation, the event was part of Affin Hwang Capital’s ongoing commitment to community engagement that has a meaningful contribution to our society and environment. The meals packaged will provide nourishment to vulnerable families and individuals under three charities in Malaysia - Rumah Kasih Harmoni, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary and Islamic Relief Malaysia.
Speaking at the event, Yang Berbahagia, Datuk Maimoonah Hussain, Group Managing Director, Affin Hwang Capital said, “At Affin Hwang Capital, adding value to our stakeholder’s lives is at the core of what we do - we believe in not just giving back to society, but also building a responsible business culture. Hence, it is only natural to extend this philosophy to help people living in improvised conditions and provide them with nutritious meals. Community development is a cause close to our heart and food security is one of most overlooked issues facing our society today. We are honored to have partnered with Rise Against Hunger and it gives me great pleasure to see our management trainees and volunteers come together for this noble cause and be part of a global movement to end world hunger.”
The meal packaging event was also attended by Yang Berhormat Steven Sim, Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, who supported the initiative as well as encouraged AHC and its employees, especially the youthful management trainees to continue their efforts in community engagement to reach out and help the underserved communities.
