With a long history of caring for families and communities, P&G is stepping up as a force for good in the fight against Covid-19 in Malaysia. By supporting the Ministry of Health and partnering The Lost Food Project, P&G is providing financial support and product donations collectively valued over RM 1 million.
The donations will help select hospitals in buying medical supplies and benefit relief organisations in extending support to the B40 (Bottom 40%) communities through product donations.
From the total contribution, RM390,700 is channeled to University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) to support the purchase of two units of bronchoscope, one unit of ultrasound and other medical supplies.

The products include, Pantene Micellar shampoo and conditioner, Oral-B mouthwash, Gillette Blue 3 disposable razors and Whisper feminine care pads.

To extend the relief efforts targeted to the B40 community, P&G is partnering with The Lost Food Project, a pioneer of sustainable food banking in Malaysia, to contribute P&G products worth over RM525,000 to fight hygiene and period poverty.

Besides our product donations, we are a creating a special fundraising channel for our P&G Malaysia family to support those who are in dire need through The Lost Food Project. Employee donations will be matched by P&G Malaysia to support the cause,” said Leroy Seow, Country Manager, P&G Malaysia.
