Negeri Sembilan – Coca-Cola Bottlers Malaysia has allocated contributions valued over
RM240,000 to flood affected victims across three states, namely Kelantan, Pahang, and Terengganu.
The food assistant programme “Sincere Kitchen” aims to support more than 9,000 families in areas
that are expected to be affected by floods. Other than providing food aid, those in need will also
receive relief packs which contain hygiene kits, medicine, and other necessities.

In addition, Coca-Cola Bottlers Malaysia, in collaboration with Yayasan Ikhlas, as well as the
Department of Social Welfare Malaysia, and the Malaysia Civil Defence Force, also worked together
to distribute Dasani drinking water as part of the contribution.

The contribution in the form of cash and drinking water was handed over to Ir. Hj. Kamaruddin
Kassim who represented Yayasan Ikhas. This marks the first collaboration Coca-Cola Bottlers
Malaysia and Yayasan Ikhlas and set the paths for future joint assistance programmes.

“Coca-Cola Malaysia does not only focus on sustainability activities, but also towards our corporate
social responsibility programmes ‘Acts of Kindness’, which we have been consistently organising in
line with our corporate value of sharing with and giving back to the communities in need,” said
Khairul Anwar Ab Gahani, Public Affairs, Communications & Sustainability Director, Coca-Cola
Singapore, Malaysia & Brunei.

Yayasan Ikhlas was established in 2009 with the purpose of assisting various communities who are
less fortunate, including orphans, the poor, and the disabled communities.

According to Ir. Hj. Kamaruddin Kassim, Corporate Director of Yayasan Ikhlas, the foundation is also
active in community activities. An example is the “Ikhlas Volunteer Team” which mobilises
volunteers across the country to help ease the burden on flood affected victims, as well as cleaning
up the affected areas.

Members of the public who wish to donate or contribute to the flood affacted victims can do so via
the Yayasan Ikhlas Flood Disaster Fund. Visit misibantuan.com or call +6019-611 5954 for further
