Being Socially Responsible During Covid-19

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that about 795 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world, or one in nine, were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2014-2016. (Almost all the hungry people, 780 million, live in developing countries.)



Since 2018, we have been partnering with Pledgeling in donating ONE (1) meal for every product/service you have purchased from us. To date, we have donated 1,070 meals and some of the NGOs which had benefited from this are described below.

When Covid-19 hits the world, our current effort is no longer sufficient. This pandemic has threatened to push the world’s hungriest people to unthinkable extremes. More efforts need to be put in place to help those who are struggling everyday.

Hence from now till end of May, we will donate 5 times more for every purchase you have made online. Together, we can safe lives.
