During the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, a lot of kind-hearted Malaysians came out to do good deeds.
Among them include Subang Jaya residents, who have been shaving their heads to support a noble cause to raise awareness about the 'Feed the Hunger' initiative.
Going bald to feed the needy
According to a report by Malay Mail
, through the community Facebook page SJ Echo, many residents took part in the cause.
The 'Feed the Hunger' programme was initiated by the Lions Club of Subang Jaya at the end of March, and their goal is to provide over 1,000 meals a day to those affected by the MCO in the district.
“To sustain this massive project, we have to fundraise as we go along. But there is only so much awareness we can generate as a club.
“After doing multiple rounds of appeals through the media, getting our community newspaper SJ Echo on board too, we decided it was time we also got members of the public to help us raise awareness,” Feed the Hunger organising chairperson Adrian Lim told the news portal.
He added that the “go bald for the cause” was to ‘turn a few heads in the process.’
“It’s funny and it makes a bold statement,” he said.
“The ‘shaves’ are now able to raise awareness of the plight of families trapped in hunger by the MCO and also get more people to do something about it through pledges.
“We were founded in Subang Jaya, for Subang Jaya. This is our obligation to help our town respond to what is probably the biggest shock it has ever faced,” he said.
