Malls may be closed under Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan, but tenants of Pavilion REIT malls – Pavilion KL, Da Men USJ and Intermark Mall, have been hard at work to support communities during this tough time. These businesses have stepped in to help those most affected, and today we’re highlighting their key efforts:
The Body Shop, Level 1, Pavilion KL
Domestic violence cases have increased during the pandemic with a total of 5,260 domestic violence cases being investigated by police in 2020. To provide aid and support to domestic violence survivors and struggling families, The Body Shop Malaysia has donated a sum of RM104,574 to non-governmental organisations Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) and Sisters In Islam (SIS).
WAO will use the funds for various items such as food and essentials, utilities and security, shelter upkeep and maintenance, crisis counselling and psycho-support. SIS has determined that the funds received will be used for awareness, public education as well as advocacy work.
Autism Cafe Project, Lower Ground Floor, Da Men USJ
Always in support of the community, Da Men USJ in April this year welcomed the Autism Cafe Project (ACP) to the mall, a venue to provide autistic youths with work experience and a platform to raise awareness of Malaysia’s autism community.
To give back, ACP invites customers to donate a minimum of RM5 per meal for their “Buy and Donate Back” campaign. By helping to cover the cost of ingredients, ACP is able to prepare approximately 200 freshly cooked meal packets daily to distribute to frontliners and underprivileged families.
Aroithai, Lower Ground Floor, Da Men USJ
Aroithai has partnered with Project Satu Hati to launch a ‘Pay It Forward’ initiative. Shoppers can be part of spreading kindness by purchasing a meal for RM8 from Aroithai that will be packed and delivered to the needy!
For more information on how to contribute to the initiative, reach out to Aroithai through www.facebook.com/aroithaistreetkafe
Agrain, Lower Concourse, Intermark Mall
In line with the government’s effort to ramp up vaccination, Agrain is providing pre-scheduled lunch meals to the vaccination task forces at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) and Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) by raising donations from the public.
The restaurant hopes to reach RM25,000 in donations by July 31. You can play your part by donating to ‘Agrain For Good’ on their website.
Jaya Grocer, Lower Ground Floor, Da Men USJ and Lower Concourse, Intermark Mall
Jaya Grocer has pledged up to 15,000 food parcels worth RM1 million to provide food aid to those in need during these trying times. Jaya Grocer is currently working with SESO and EHSAN for this cause.

Are you vaccinated?
To encourage more Malaysians to get vaccinated in the fight against COVID-19, many businesses are rewarding vaccinated customers by giving out exclusive promotions.
We have compiled a list of brands that are offering promotions for those who are vaccinated.
Nando’s, Level 1, Pavilion KL and Ground Floor, Intermark Mall
Until Sept 30, one Chilli will be injected into vaccinated customers’ Nando’s Loyalty account upon each visit. All you have to do is simply show that you have played your part in helping Malaysia achieve herd immunity by showing your vaccination certificate on MySejahtera.
P/S: With every three Chillies collected, you’ll be rewarded with a ¼ chicken for free!
On top of that, Nando’s is also celebrating our healthcare heroes by giving them 40% off their takeaway orders.
Salad Atelier, Ground Floor, Intermark Mall
With any purchase of pasta, salad or poke bowl, Salad Atelier is giving away free Twinnings English Breakfast tea (in July) and free Snack meatballs (in August) to those who can prove that they have been vaccinated.
