Buka Puasa While Supporting a Good Cause

During Ramadhan, the spirit of giving and understanding is key. So what could be better than supporting a good cause during this time. Bonus point: you get to break fast with tasty treats at the same time.

Here are a few organisations and social enterprises you can support, while getting a meal or two for buka puasa:


What they do: A social enterprise that provides marginalised communities in Malaysia – mainly as refugees – the chance to earn an income and contribute meaningfully through cooking, food delivery and catering businesses.

How you’ll help: By ordering a hearty, wholesome meal through PichaEats, you will be helping create opportunities for refugee families to start a better life.


What they do: An online marketplace that connects the B40 and unemployed women’s talents to the society

How you’ll help: The platform has specially curated dessert platters for Ramadan and Raya 2020. While you’re munching on these delectable treats, it’s comforting to know that their ‘ibupreneurs’ are earning an income, as well as learning entrepreneurial skills and know-how that will help them in the long run.

Silent Teddies

What they do: Provide opportunities for the deaf community.

How you’ll help: With every jar of treats sold, RM5 will be donated to the AirAsia Foundation to help those in need in the Orang Asli, homeless and refugee communities during the pandemic.

Bonus: Coffee For Good

What they do: Provide coffee education and barista skills training for underprivileged youth.

How you’ll help: Unlike the suggestions above where you’re buying food for personal consumption, you would be buying a treat for the frontliners combating COVID-19 in Malaysia. Coffee For Good’s ‘Coffee For Frontliners’ campaign invites you to do good by purchasing a curated snack bag (consisting of cookies, dates, and coffee), which will be distributed to hospitals, quarantine centres, civil forces and other essential service officers located within Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Plus, the food products in these bags are sourced from women in the B40 community who are also affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and MCO. Each purchase of their Coffee Bag you will help affected communities to save their business and assist their financial burden. A win-win situation for all.
