“This is a trying time for the country, and we have to remember the frontliners who are out there every single day, risking their lives for us. Because of them, Malaysians are one step closer every day to fighting off this pandemic,” said Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia.

“Giving back to the communities we operate in has always been part of McDonald’s DNA. This is our way of helping in our own small way as we Malaysians go through this difficult time together,” added Azmir.

Besides hospitals, McDonald's is also making regular food deliveries to other frontliners such as the police and army personnel all over the country.

Azmir also recognised the restaurant team who have been on the ground since the start of the MCO.

“A big shoutout goes to our McDonald’s crew at all of our restaurants nationwide as well as McDelivery riders who have worked tirelessly to ensure that customers still enjoy their favourite McDonald’s meals,” he said.

In an effort to keep everyone's spirits up during this trying time, McDonald's has also spearheaded the #KitaBoleh movement on social media

#KitaBoleh is a nationwide call to rally Malaysians together during the MCO period. It's meant to leverage the spirit of all Malaysians to stand united and keep up our fighting spirit 

#KitaBoleh also serves as a way to herald the silent bravery of the frontliners who are continuing on their work as Malaysians stay home during the MCO period.
