It's 2017 but there are still many Malaysians living in poverty
In Malaysia, poverty is measured in two categories: extreme poverty and poor.
Those who fall under the extreme poverty category are people who cannot even afford food, clothing, and shelter in Malaysia, whereas households categorised as "poor" can only manage the most basic amenities.
For this year’s Hari Hasanah, Axiata will be supporting Picha Project to distribute 1,000 meals to those in need
Hari Hasanah is an initiative to celebrate our progress and journey as a nation, which will take place on 4 September this year. This initiative also encourages Malaysians to do good and help those in need whenever they can.
In conjunction with that, Axiata is launching the Share-A-Meal campaign on Hari Hasanah to help those in need. Together with Picha Project, they will be donating 1,000 meals to Rumah Titian Kaseh - a centre that takes care of orphans, single parent families, people with disabilities, and old folks.
How can you show your support? Simply upload a photo of you and your friends sharing a meal with the hashtags below:
2. Upload the photo to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtags #AxiataCares, #ShareAMealTogether, and #BerbudiBersama.

Share-A-Meal will be running from 4-17 September. At the end of the campaign, Axiata will be donating 1,000 meals prepared by Picha Project to the needy in Rumah Titian Kaseh.
A simple act of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s life! Remember this the next time you share a meal.
