vivo Malaysia Extends Vivo Care Programme Efforts During EMCO
vivo continues its commitment in providing assistance to affected communities during this pandemic through its contribution via its vivo Care Programme. In partnership with non-governmental organisation, Refuge For The Refugees, vivo has mobilised the donation of essential supplies including baby and childcare products to 100 families in Klang Valley.
“vivo, being a global brand, understands the importance of supporting the communities we are present in and through the vivo Care Programme, we have been able to meet the needs of affected families and beneficiaries across Malaysia. It is our hope that affected families will be able to benefit through our NGO collaborations such as our recent Refuge For The Refugees donation and we recognise the hard work and efforts that the organisation has done thus far during this pandemic,” said Mike Xu, vivo’s Chief Executive Officer.
“At vivo, we are cognisant of the needs of the community at the point of time and found that childcare essential items including milk formula and baby diapers are in high demand during this phase of the pandemic, therefore, we sought to bridge the gap for these needs.”
vivo’s partnership with Refuge For The Refugees is the latest in its initiatives via the vivo Care Programme which has been in full force since the start of the pandemic. The partnership marks vivo’s continuous commitment to give back to the community as the brand encourages more individuals and organisations to play their part in helping the needy.
Last year, vivo launched its “Give A Little, Help A Lot” campaign which saw a donation of RM10 for each sold device on vivo’s official e-store during a one-month campaign with Yayasan Sin Chew to provide medical aid to vulnerable communities. Earlier in 2020, vivo had also partnered with MERCY Malaysia to donate hand sanitisers and 20,000 face masks in support of frontliners and to protect the vulnerable communities in fighting against the pandemic.
Additionally this month, vivo has donated a total of RM7,420 to the Pan-Disability Football Club through its crowdfunding vivo Dream Field Campaign to support the differently-abled football community in Malaysia in building a dedicated training centre and facilities for disability football in Malaysia.
