966 B40 families from the Rumah Rakyat Enggang Puchong flats recently received aid from the Lions Club of Puchong (Lions Club) and OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad (OCBC Bank) as part of their joint effort to help the community overcome difficulties related to Covid-19.

The joint special relief programme is aimed at supporting affected families by providing food and other supplies - including rice, cooking oil, sugar and flour and masks - as they move toward Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
According to Lions Club of Puchong President Mr Cha Boon Kooi the collaboration with OCBC Bank was a natural one given its back-to-back years of partnership in corporate social responsibility programmes.
“We are grateful to OCBC Bank through their Puchong, Subang Jaya and OCBC Al-Amin Kota Kemuning branches, for their relentless support and commitment to assist the community during these trying times. We knew we could count on them as we did the years before on other meaningful projects.
“We hope to have brought some cheer to those who are celebrating Hari Raya and are pleased to have done our little part to help our community and we hope this will help them tide through the current period,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of OCBC Bank, its Puchong branch Senior Manager Ms Shereen Hah said the Bank continues to strive to be more involved in the localities in which it operates and to become even more engaged in the community, going beyond simply providing superior banking products and services to meeting the social needs of the people as well.
“The social and economic effect of the global pandemic is hard for many and so we wanted to reach out to support our own community during this time of need. We are thankful to Lions Club for being part of this food aid programme for those in need. My colleagues and I also banded together to package the masks for each family and prepared a special gift card to help brighten their day,” she said.
