Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, contributed a Triton 4×4 pick-up truck to INSAF Malaysia, a non-profit organization (NGO) carrying out humanitarian efforts.
The Triton will be used to run several programs under INSAF Malaysia’s belt especially to help transport abundance of food items for those that have been victims of poverty and natural disasters.
Some of the NGO’s program include distribution of food bank, lunch box and rice bags to orphanages and welfare homes respectively, as well as ‘Meals on Wheels’ where food are distributed to old folks who have been abandoned or lives alone.
The NGO also builds shelter homes for those that have been hit by natural disasters and is in dire need for a roof above their heads.
“Our CSR vision for this year is ‘Inspiring Lives Today for a Greater Future’. While our missions are to implement CSR activities that provides aid to support underprivileged children, and to collaborate with NGOs in promoting a sustainable economy, society and environment.
“So when we found out that INSAF Malaysia’s humanitarian efforts is constantly striving for voluntarily action, we want to support their work by contributing a Triton pick-up truck in hopes that the NGO can go beyond the distance and to help more underprivileged families,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, President and Founder of INSAF Malaysia, Ishak Abdul Kadir said “We have been witnessing a dangerous trend from the number of people suffering from malnutrition and food insecurity especially during this pandemic.
“Hunger is on the rise in Malaysia as we’ve seen lot of breadwinners lose their source of income which leads to the inability to put food on the table. We are doing all that we can to make sure children or families don’t go to bed hungry hence we are so glad to have companies like Mitsubishi Motors reach out to us to offer help.
“The contribution of the Triton pick-up truck is timely, practical and very much appreciated.”
