In conjunction with KL City Week, the Greener Sysmex team of 30 staff sacrificed their Friday evening to distribute food & recycled clothing to almost 1,000 homeless poor in Kuala Lumpur. Many thanks to Dato Munirah, the founder of Pertiwi Soup Kitchen who agreed to this collaboration with Sysmex Malaysia and other organizations such as Kechara Soup Kitchen, Food Aid Foundation and Gardenia Bread.

This augurs well with the spirit of the coming Chinese New Year and represents the Greener Sysmex Committee initiative to encourage the habit of giving back to the society and giving a treat to the underprivilege community.

Food distributed includes biscuits, waffles, bread, beverages and mandarin oranges, while recycled clothes and shoes was given away amidst a celebrity, Chef Zam and his team who were busy preparing meals at Pusat Gelendangan Medan Tuanku.
