Inspired by the success of the “C our Future” project in Asia, Ceva Malaysia responded quickly to the needs of underprivileged Malaysians, badly affected by the Movement Control Order (MCO), which has been in place since March 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Launching the #CEVACARES initiative, the Malaysia team joined forces with The Lost Food Project (TLFP), and several local poultry producers, CP Malaysia, Heap Soon Farming Sdn Bhd, Liang Kee Farming Sdn Bhd, Teo Seng Capital Bhd and Zenxin Agriculture Sdn Bhd to donate eggs, a vital source of high-quality protein, vitamins and trace minerals.
Over 100,000 eggs were donated to 7,500 underprivileged communities including low-income groups and 56 charity homes, including Grace Food Bank, Pertubuhan Komuniti Kasih Selangor, Lighthouse Children Welfare Home, Yayasan Chow Kit and IDEAS.
The project aimed to create awareness by encouraging Malaysians to consume more eggs as an affordable source of protein while also showing solidarity with local poultry farmers, who have worked tirelessly to continue to deliver throughout the Covid-19 crisis.
This objective was also met with a major newspaper, The Star, also covering the story.
