Kajang, March 29, 2023 – In the spirit of giving during the holy month of Ramadan, MAGGI® is providing Malaysians in need with wholesome meals for buka puasa through the MAGGI® bubur lambuk programme, with more than 188,400 bowls to be distributed across the nation. This annual initiative by MAGGI® is also part of the Nestlé Cares programme which aims to positively impact local communities.

Kicking off the initiative this year, over 70 senior citizens at Pusat Jagaan Al-Fikrah Malaysia in Kajang and 20 orphans from Rumah Nur Kasih Bestari were treated to a special buka puasa with MAGGI® bubur lambuk, serving up bowls of the famed traditional savoury porridge made with fresh ingredients along with MAGGI® products, prepared by MAGGI® and Nestlé Malaysia leadership team members.

Earlier in the day, more than 40 Nestlé Cares volunteers gathered to clean up Pusat Jagaan Al-Fikrah Malaysia and its surroundings. In addition to this, the volunteers also spruced up the vegetable garden at the home, which provides fresh home-grown produce for the residents. As the garden is not fully utilised and lacks a proper irrigation system, the volunteers teamed up with the Perumahan Awam Seri Perlis farming community who came forward to help set-up the infrastructure and share their expertise in urban community farming to spruce up the garden and its landscaping. They also shared tips on how to maintain the vegetable garden.
