PETALING JAYA: The “#BenderaPutih” (white flag) campaign is a community initiative to help those in desperate need of food and assistance in light of the worsening Covid-19 health and economic crisis.
The campaign encourages those who are struggling financially to reach out for help without fear or shame by displaying a white flag in front of their home as a sign that they need assistance.
Latest additions to the list:
1) Feed Selangor
Feed Selangor is a youth-powered platform with the aim of enhancing the accessibility of information to those impoverished by the lockdown.
The initiative is spearheaded by Au Jun Wei and four other students who hope the platform will be a bridge to those in need, even after the pandemic
The website acts as an information hub, to centralise food aid, food bank and NGO locations across Selangor and KL.
“Feed Selangor also centralises free mental health helplines to support the emotional wellbeing of our community. We also provide accessibility towards supporting organisations that are feeding the community through our donation and volunteer pages,” Au said.
