KUALA LUMPUR, 7 December 2021 – The Chubb Charitable Foundation today announced grants to support The Lost Food Project (TLFP) and the Mental Illness Awareness & Support Association (MIASA). The US$10,000 and US$5,000 grants (approximately RM42,000 and RM21,000), respectively, are part of the Foundation’s continuous effort to assist Malaysians during these unprecedented times.
With this second grant from the Foundation, TLFP will continue to provide critical food aid to People’s Housing Project (PPR) residents and charities around the country based on an assessment of areas with the most critical needs. To date, TLFP has managed to deliver over 380,000 kilograms of essential food supplies to individuals and communities at high risk of food insecurity.
MIASA, a mental advocacy and peer support group, strives to reduce stigma and end the discrimination and inequality faced daily by people who struggle from mental illness, which for many, has been exasperated during the pandemic. The Foundation’s grant will be used for their upcoming campaign, which includes a video and a song that aims to create conversations and awareness on challenging topics surrounding mental health.
"Chubb has been a significant partner for TLFP in our fight against hunger, and in the promotion of a sustainable future. Thousands of meals have been provided to the underprivileged since the beginning of this collaboration, especially to the urban poor communities. We cannot thank Chubb enough for furthering this cause and allowing us to distribute another 118,000 meals approximately, through this donation and providing food security to those who have been severely impacted by the pandemic," said TLFP General Manager, Mohd Syazwan.
“One of the silver linings of this pandemic has been the normalisation of the discussions surrounding mental health and mental health disorders. We have witnessed how many have felt encouraged and brave enough to reach out for help that they very much require and need. We are indeed humbled and grateful with the support shown by the Chubb Charitable Foundation, which is timely and reflects the true commitment of the private sector in coming together and empowering the community to ensure that no person is left behind” said MIASA President, Puan Anita Binti Abu Bakar.
Chubb Insurance Malaysia Berhad’s Country President Steve Crouch said: "We are not out of the woods yet with the challenges posed by the evolving pandemic and we are delighted to be able to lend a helping hand to the important services organizations like TLFP and MIASA are providing to our communities.”
