RM0.10 from all Antabax products sales from MYDIN outlets nationwide to be channelled to selected organisations
Shah Alam, May 4, 2020– Antabax, Malaysia’s number 1 Halal antibacterial personal care range, will join MYDIN Corporate Social Responsibility, MYDIN Prihatin: Zahirkan Kesyukuran, Semarakkan Keriangan 2020.
The fundraising initiative will run from April 13 to June 21, 2020 and will see RM0.10 from the sales of all Antabax products from all MYDIN outlets nationwide channeled towards providing the basic necessities to Asnaf (groups of Zakat beneficiaries) and orphanages registered with the Department of Social Welfare.
Antabax is among the 5 brands participating in the second MYDIN Prihatin charity fundraising initiative. This year the funds collected will be donated to underprivileged families, orphanages and old folks homes in conjunction with MYDIN’s 63rd Anniversary in August, and in time for the Back to School season in December.
The Covid-19 pandemic is having a staggering impact on the global economy. Among the hardest hit are those who are most at risk especially the underprivileged.
To flatten the curve of transmission, washing hands frequently with soap and water, using sanitisers and showering upon returning from crowded areas are recommended. Antabax shower creams, hand soaps, bar soaps, gel and spray sanitisers, and antibacterial wipes offer 24 hour antibacterial protection from 99.9% of harmful germs, and are available at MYDIN outlets, nationwide. All Antabax products are certified Halal, giving Muslims full confidence in using them.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in increased demand for Antabax’ products as frequent handwashing, sanitising hands and surfaces, bathing and showers are recommended to flatten the curve. As a caring corporate citizen we would like to give back to communities in need during this time,” explained Mr Francis Ng, Senior General Manager at Antabax.
“As a proudly Malaysian brand, Antabax understands the challenges of local communities. During these challenging times, we need to adopt the #KitaJagaKita spirit to help out. We are proud to partner with MYDIN on this initiative that will assist those who are most in need,” he added.
Through the first MYDIN Prihatin initiative in 2019, Antabax contributed approximately RM18, 000 towards 14 charity homes, nationwide.
“We truly appreciate the support of Antabax in joining this noble initiative to reaching out the underprivileged. The previous MYDIN Prihatin has successfully collected more than RM 150,000 for charity, and we hope to bring more smiles this year, especially during these challenging times” said Datuk Wira (Dr.) Hj Ameer Ali Mydin, Managing Director of Mydin Mohamed Holdings Berhad.
“Contributions in cash and in kind have reduced tremendously since the Covid-19 pandemic started because times are tough for everyone. We are thankful for the MYDIN Prihatin initiative and the support we received from Antabax. For us these contributions make so much difference, and we feel very grateful for the contribution,” said a NGO representative.
