The Covid-19 pandemic has affected many families, and the flood have made the affected families into a worst situation. One Hope Charity distributed 300 food bags for the affected families to solve their urgent needs.
On 18 August 18 2021, a heavy downpour hit the low-lying area of Balik Pulau, Pulau Pinang. Hundreds of homes were affected by the flash floods. One Hope Charity received an assistance request from the Pulau Betong assemblyman and we immediate decided to donate food for affected families.
After the approval from board meeting, 300 food bags were arranged to be delivered to the Pulau Betong, and then the representative will distribute to the affected families.
At the early of this year, One Hope Charity organized Essential Items Contribution event that to distributed 300 sets (each of the Penang State) to poor households through 40 Penang State Legislative Assembly. After that, the Pulau Betong assemblyman requested help to sponsor dry food for poor families before Hari Raya Aidilfitri. One Hope Charity also donated another 140 sets of food bags.
