Petaling Jaya, 27 July 2020 – Following their success in the previous years, the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF) is joining forces with Oversea Group of Companies once again for their annual mooncake charity project to raise funds for NKF’s underprivileged kidney failure patients.
In addition to this year’s project, NKF embraces the New Normal with full force – adhering to social distancing and public health guidelines by collaborating with Shopee for the charitable act. Malaysians can now support the fundraising effort by purchasing NKF mooncakes on Shopee.
From 15 July until 30 September 2020, Malaysians can visit the NKF Malaysia official store on Shopee to purchase the NKF mooncakes with assurance that all proceeds will be donated directly to NKF Malaysia.
The Mooncakes are 100% halal certified and come in two available sets:
Set A: This box includes a normal 4-piece set of mooncakes; Lotus Paste 1 Yolk, Assorted Fruits & Nuts, Red Bean and Shanghai Mooncake 1 Yolk for RM 68 per box.
Set B: This box includes a normal 4-piece set of mooncakes; Green Tea with Red Bean (Green Tea Lotus Paste & Red Bean), Royal Fairy 1 Yolk (Lotus Paste & Mung Bean), Golden Starlight 1 Yolk (Pandan Lotus Paste & Mung Bean) and Cherry Blossom 1 Yolk (Sakura Flower Lotus Paste) for RM 68 per box.
“NKF is doing its best to provide subsidised dialysis treatments for the 1,712 kidney failure patients at our 27 dialysis centres nationwide besides funding for our constant efforts to educate the public on early prevention and management of kidney diseases. This annual mooncake charity project is part of our fundraising initiatives in order to support our ongoing mission for over 30 years and we truly appreciate the support and generosity of Shopee and its users,” said Mr. Chua Hong Wee, Chief Executive Officer of NKF Malaysia.
Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director of Shopee said, “We are humbled to be part of this meaningful cause, working alongside the National Kidney Foundation as they ramp up their efforts in helping kidney failure patients in their dialysis treatment. Besides the physical pain, they also have to combat the mental and emotional stress. With our technology, we will be able to reach out to many Malaysians out there and bring awareness about this campaign to further encourage more purchases of the mooncakes. Through this partnership, we hope to be able to lighten the burden and worries of the patients as the funds raised will help in their treatment, thereby giving them peace of mind.” Shopee users in Malaysia who are interested in purchasing the NKF mooncakes can find out more through https://shopee.com.my/nkfmy.
