Lenovo, the world’s leading PC maker, and Rise Against Hunger, an international hunger relief non-profit organisation, recently joined hands in the fight against hunger. As part of its inaugural Make a Difference week, over 100 Lenovo Malaysia’s employees came together to pack meals for the needy.
Over 20,000 highly nutritious meals comprising rice, soy and vegetables were packed during the event.
The dehydrated meals will then distributed by Rise Against Hunger to local schools as part of its school feeding initiative and other programmes that promote self-sufficiency.
As mentioned, Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organisation that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable.
It engages close to 400,000 volunteers globally in its ongoing effort to end world hunger by 2030, with over 1.4 million lives already impacted by the organisation in 2017.
The numbers don’t lie, and it is downright shocking: 815 million people across the world don’t receive enough nutrition to lead an active, healthy life.
