Palm oil giant donates $5m in total to five local organisations to help those affected by Covid-19
SINGAPORE – Palm oil giant Musim Mas is donating $5 million in total to five local organisations, to help those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Singapore-based firm announced in a statement on Monday (June 22) that under its Musim Mas Project Onward, each beneficiary would receive $1 million.
The donation will benefit the Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA), Metta Welfare Association, The Majurity Trust, The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF) and the Singapore General Hospital.
The firm said it is meant to demonstrate solidarity and commitment to vulnerable families and individuals in need during this period.
“The Government’s swift and decisive policies meant that most Singaporeans are able to cope with the aftershocks of Covid-19. However, we recognise there are many less privileged families and individuals who need more help now,” said Mr Alvin Lim, chief financial officer and executive director of Musim Mas Holdings.
“We hope this cash donation will inspire and empower these organisations to rise above the uncertainties brought about by the pandemic, and to continue serving their communities with fervour,” he added.
Last year, Musim Mas donated $1 million to the ADA to fund its therapies and programmes.
