A total of 34 Allianz Malaysia employees rolled up their sleeves to serve around 765 homeless and the urban poor community at the Pertubuhan Tindakan Wanita Islam (PERTIWI) Soup Kitchen in Medan Tuanku and Anjung Singgah on 13 October 2017. During the session, the volunteers served meals and beverages sponsored by Allianz Malaysia to the homeless and urban poor community around both areas. “Most soup kitchens rely on volunteers to run the service and Allianz Malaysia is more than happy to engage our employees as volunteers to help serve the community. To-date, almost 250 Allianz Malaysia volunteers have participated in the sessions and it has been a rewarding way for us to reach out to the underserved community,” said Ng Siew Gek, Head of Allianz4Good, Allianz Malaysia Berhad. PERTIWI is an organisation that is dedicated towards addressing the welfare and needs of marginalised groups in Malaysia. The mobile soup kitchen project which began in 2010 provides free meals, basic medical aid and other forms of assistance to the homeless and urban poor community in various locations around Kuala Lumpur.
