While many causes advocate for immediate issues, issues like poverty and accessibility to nutritional and balanced diet for the urban poor have remained one of the pressing issues to look into, especially with the rising cost of prices. The B40 group in Malaysia are the 40% of the population that earn the least and struggle the most in terms of putting food on the table, moreso with the current trying economic times.
Great Vision Charity Association (GVCA) runs the Rakan Shopping Program on a monthly basis, which provides customised grocery packs requested by each respective B40 families in low-cost government (PPR) flats, to provide these families with a well balanced and nutritional diet. Our programs are in constant need of funding, especially over the past year as more and more people find themselves losing their sources of income. With this campaign, we hope to raise support from members of the public to celebrate their birthdays in a meaningful way by fundraising for our campaign so that they could share their happiness with those in need.
As this fundraiser is an ongoing effort, centred around donor birthdays, it helps us ensure that funding continues to be channelled to the right places at a steady pace. The monthly additions to the fundraiser give a sense of security not only to us as we plan out the year, but also to our beneficiaries who can lean on the kindness of our donors who choose to celebrate their birthday with kindness.
