July 2021 | COVID-19 Sustainability Effort (Food Aid)
With the current increase in the number of COVID-19 cases and the raising of white flags by many seeking help during this pandemic, Basis Bay has come forth to provide support to struggling local families. We currently offer two vegetarian hot meals daily (for lunch and dinner) which are delivered to their respective homes for a week or more as needed. This is currently targeted within the Klang Valley and has supported over 150 families.
