In addition to receiving a monthly contribution of RM80 for a year, the identified families will also receive RM240 each during festive seasons, to help with the necessary preparations.
 
All contributions will be made via cashless payment, where recipients can obtain essential food items at partnering supermarkets using their MyKad.

To reach out to more families in need, PETRONAS is looking at expanding the effort to other states in Malaysia.
 
The contributions will be administered and distributed through the MyKasih Foundation from April 2018 to March 2019.
 
Since 2005, PETRONAS has embarked on several community initiatives including Sentuhan Kasih programmes aimed at contributing to the well-being of society and the nation.
