4. Flood Donation Through Malaysian Red Crescent Society (PBSM)’s Disaster Relief Team
Early December 2021 was a devastating week for our fellow Malaysians in Selangor, KL, Pahang & Negeri Sembilan. Thousands of lives were badly affected by the flood, one of the worse to hit central of Peninsula Malaysia in the past few decades. Malaysians were left homeless, hungry and helpless while waiting for search and rescue teams. Many were traumatized after waiting for more than 24 hours for help to arrive.
Temporary relief centers (PPS) were opened to provide temporary shelter for the victims. As a responsible Corporate Citizen, Southern Lion Sdn Bhd donated personal care and hygiene products through the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (PBSM)’s Disaster Relief Team. We donated Bio Zip Detergent Powder, Shokubustu Active Guard Body Shower Foam, Emeron Shampoo, Systema Toothbrush, Fresh & White Toothpaste and Kodomo Lion Toothbrush & Toothpaste.
