Update 23 December 2021 - At MSIG, we embrace the spirit of giving and goodwill whenever the need arises in our community. Our latest effort is a RM50,000 donation to Food Aid Foundation to ease the burden of many B40 families facing difficult times.
In conjunction with this contribution, MSIG will also be matching your donations to Food Aid Foundation ringgit-to-ringgit with the aim of raising another RM30,000 through our Pledge A Difference initiative that runs from 26 November 2021 to 25 January 2022.
It only takes RM75 to help one family. With our RM50,000 donation and another RM60,000 raised, the funds will go towards helping 1,466 families and homes in need.
So let’s put our helping hands together. You and MSIG.

1. Which organization am I donating to?
You are donating to Food Aid Foundation through MSIG’s ‘Pledge A Difference’ goodwill initiative that aims to provide food essentials to the B40 community.
2. Who is Food Aid Foundation?
Food Aid Foundation (FAF) is a non-profit governmental organization (NGO) incorporated on 2013 that is where manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, companies or people can donate their unused food which will then be collected and distributed to charitable/welfare homes, volunteer welfare organisations, poor families, destitute persons and soup kitchens. (adapted from Food Aid Foundation website).
In short, Food Aid Foundation rescues surplus food from the supply chain and distributing food to people in need. MSIG has worked with Food Aid Foundation to supply food and support for flood-victims in Penang and Kelantan.
Over the last two years FAF has been receiving donations to supply and feed those who have been affected by the pandemic.
3. How much will MSIG actually be donating during this campaign?
MSIG has already donated RM50,000 to Food Aid Foundation for their excellent outreach to the communities. RM10,000 from this donation is used to provide relief to flood victims. This campaign aims to add RM60,000 to help them continue to reach B40 families across the nation – RM30,000 from donors, RM30,000 from us on a ringgit-to-ringgit basis.
