We are in that time of the year again. Nope, not Christmas. It’s the Monsoon season. Recently, Grab launched the #BantuanBanjir 3.0 campaign to aid flood relief efforts. That said, what should you know about it?

For your information, Grab Malaysia will partner with MERCY Malaysia to raise funds for the flood aid efforts. This will be the third #BantuanBanjir campaign, and the company promised to raise RM200000 this time. You can also contribute to this campaign with these easy steps.

Firstly, you can convert your GrabRewards into direct donations to MERCY. Secondly, you can contribute by placing more orders on GrabFood. How does it work? Mastercard will donate 1% of the order value to the flood relief fund. Plus, Grab will match your GrabRewards contributions to provide relief for the affected families and communities.

According to the latest data from the National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA) and Social Welfare Department (JKM), as of 27 November 2023, the ongoing floods continue to affect three major states: Terengganu, Kelantan, and some parts of Selangor, displacing over 883 individuals from 254 families across 9 relief centres. The floods have left many communities without access to essential supplies and services. Adelene Foo, Managing Director, Grab Malaysia said:

"We are deeply saddened by the impact of the floods on the communities of Malaysia. Through our #BantuanBanjir initiative, we are committed to working with MERCY Malaysia to provide support and assistance to help address the immediate dire needs of the affected communities, especially on the East Coast. We also encourage our employees and fellow Malaysians to join us in making a difference,”

Hopefully, everything goes well for this campaign. We at TechNave pray for the safety and well-being of the affected families. May everything be made eased.
