Be The Movement World Hunger Relief Charity Walk 201310:05 am
This afternoon saw thousands of men, women and children wearing fluorescent green converge in Putrajaya in support of the World Hunger Relief (WHR) Malaysia 2013 campaign.
Held at Dataran Putrajaya, Presint 3, Putrajaya, the WHR campaign culminated in a charity walk cum mini carnival which started at 1pm.
Participants were treated to a number of fun filled activities including inflatables, face painting, colouring contests, several game stalls as well as many other activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Addressing the highly motivated crowd, President and Chief Executive of Johor Corporation cum Chairman of QSR Brands (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd, Dato Kamaruzzaman Abu Kassim in a statement said, "It gets better every year, and this year is the best I have ever witnessed. Your participation has made a big difference in people's lives".
"I am proud to see the effort from our restaurants and how the event has gotten all our employees out on the track for a good cause."
"On behalf of everyone at KFC and Pizza Hut Malaysia, we are delighted to be a part of such a wonderful event by supporting the WHR 2013 campaign and the "Be the Movement" charity walk event," he added.
WHR, which was launched in 2007 has now become the world's largest private sector hunger relief effort.
This annual initiative leverages the power of Yum! Brands' global restaurant system and engages with over one million employees the world over, to raise awareness, volunteerism and funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (UN WFP) and other hunger relief agencies.
Since the launch of this programme, Yum! Brands has raised nearly USD$150 million, helping to provide nearly 600 million meals.
