DRY RATIONS FOR FOREIGN WORKERS
Dry rations for foreign workers in the vicinity of Kuala Lumpur was provided by AYO Malaysia in the month of May. This was done to support foreign workers who are currently working or lost their jobs during this unpredicted time. This provision will allow them to sustain their livelihoods by reducing their burden on daily needs. Each person received a box of provisions that contained basic food items such as sugar, biscuits, instant noodles, tea, and all-purpose flour.
*This project has been implemented in March-May 2020.
