At PAPER + TOAST we believe small gestures may bring a big impact to one’s life.
Let’s all do our best to lend a helping hand to those who are in need during MCO. We strongly believe in the value of community and together we can support each other in this trying time. Let’s spread the word around to our friends and family to contribute more!
These are the areas that seek support:
1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
PPE is used by everyday healthcare personnel to protect themselves, patients and others while providing care. PPE shortages are being faced currently due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is highly crucial for these personnel to obtain protection with PPE from potentially infectious patients and also during the handling of medications and materials.

The goal: To provide face visor to the front liners.
The goal: To purchase protective suits, surgical masks, and face masks to be distributed across hospitals.
The goal: Making of face shields to be supplied to the frontliners for Covid-19
Many NGOs and organizations are partnering with each other in raising funds to those who are facing extreme difficulties financially. Some have suffered job loss, pay cuts and even being laid off during this outbreak. Here’s how you can help:

3. Food for front liners / poor / homeless / refugees / single mother
Our front liners are fighting endlessly and giving everything they can to combat this outbreak over sleepless nights and determination. On the other hand, we have refugees and homeless people who are having it hard as well without basic necessities. Not forgetting the single mothers who are in need of essential food items throughout the period of MCO.

There are students who are unable to make their way back home and are struggling to obtain their basic needs such as daily essentials, hygiene products, food and drinks to sustain during the MCO. You can also do your part by helping them.
Also not to forget our little cute friends at the Zoo Negara, they need your attention as well. Zoo Negara Malaysia has partnered with Ticket2u to create a new way for people to donate, allowing donors to support ‘Adopt An Animal’ initiatives and Zoo Negara will be getting the financial support needed to take care of their animals family.
