Bonanza Venture Holdings (BVH) has reached out to more people in need, giving out much needed daily essentials to vulnerable families and orphanages.
As part of its ongoing commitment to support the community, BVH distributed additional care packs to 30 families going through tough times due to the pandemic in Buntong Harmoni Flats, Ipoh. Each pack contained food items such as rice, cooking oil, noodles, and instant cereal.
The BVH team also visited Pusat Jagaan Pertubuhan Kanak-kanak Cacat Setia in Silibin, Ipoh to deliver food items and cleaning supplies for its 36 residents. The team also delivered similar supplies to Rumah Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Cacat in Batu Gajah for its 42 residents. Both orphanages which rely on public funding have been hit hard in the past year as donations have run dry.
BVH Executive Director of Operations Edwin Tan, said BVH, an Ipoh-based holdings company, which includes Kinta Properties, Meru Valley Resort, Ban Hoe Seng Auto and Bonanza Educare, has in the past year been supporting vulnerable families and individuals affected by the pandemic through various funding and volunteer initiatives.
“We will continue to support the vulnerable in our local communities throughout the pandemic. We want to assure them that they are not alone and that BVH is always here for them.”
Madam Helen, Chairperson of Buntong Harmony Flats Rukun Tetangga said, “Many of our residents here are elderly and disabled while others are daily wage earners. They have been relying on the kindness of others to survive throughout this difficult period.”
“We are grateful to BVH for generously donating care packs to our residents the second time around,” said Madam Helen, adding that her committee was in the midst of setting up a soup kitchen at the flats.
Mr. Siva, President of Rumah Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Cacat, Batu Gajah said, “The orphanage requires RM20,000 a month to run and due to the lockdown, we have not received much donations. To make matters worse, we are unable to organise any fund raising events as we usually do to raise funds.”
Since the start of the pandemic, the BVH group of companies has worked with the Ipoh City Council (MBI) to distribute 250 care packs to vulnerable families, encouraged employees to volunteer at Perak Chinese Specialist Hospital’s (PCSH) vaccination drive and kept child care services open to children of frontline workers.
With more than 500 staff, BVH employees are coming together to volunteer at the vaccination programme at Perak Chinese Specialist Hospital (PCSH). In addition, chefs at Meru Valley Resort have delivered lunch boxes to vaccination volunteers.
Kinta Properties also offers a special rebate of RM5k or 1%, whichever is higher, to help emergency workers looking to purchase new homes. The special rebate is on top of existing promotions when purchasing a home at Bandar Baru Sri Klebang.
