HappyFresh and Dreamr recently delivered Christmas gifts to 100 autistic children of all ages around Kuala Lumpur
HappyFresh is Southeast Asia’s leading online grocery service provider, while Dreamr is a social enterprise that focuses on supporting children’s education.
The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) reached out to parents of autistic children to register for the programme. NASOM revealed that in recent years, there has been a spike in the number of people seeking its services across all age groups. Due to financial constraints and their dependency on public charity, the NGO has struggled to keep up with the demand.
This year, the children received carefully curated gifts based on their age and special needs
Hu Hun Hui, Managing Director of HappyFresh Malaysia was one of the crew of delivery personnel dressed in festive outfits while delivering gifts to the children’s home, one by one.
He said, “We are very excited and humbled to be working with Dreamr on another initiative. It serves as an opportunity for us to continue to give back to the communities affected by this pandemic, and what better way by spreading the joy in the form of presents.”
Dreamr has been collaborating with startups, corporates, and the Ministry of Education to create targeted and meaningful social impact
“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with HappyFresh yet again, this time to put smiles on the faces of children with very special needs,” said Adrian Lafage, Co-founder of Dreamr.
In July 2020, Dreamr and HappyFresh partnered to provide a healthy breakfast to students at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sri Cheras. Upon approval by the Ministry of Education, the breakfast meals consisting of products sponsored by Goodday, Tropicana, and Oat Krunch, as well as assorted fruits and muesli bars, were provided to over 150 students in attendance while still adhering to the social distancing guidelines.
Since the initial Movement Control Order (MCO), HappyFresh has seen a fall in spending power and have since lowered their delivery fee
In fact, delivery is now free for a certain average basket size. The delivery company also removed their minimum spend threshold at various supermarkets and stores, so that online grocery shopping remains affordable for all households.
