Carefugees’ response to RPK

Carefugees refers to the recent online posting by Raja Petra Kamaruddin – screenshot attached.

We would like to clarify and assert that the picture is from an event held by Carefugees in February 2019. It was the launch of the annual Feed a Family, a campaign that provides food aid to thousands of refugee families in Malaysia each year.

This campaign has been running since 2013 and has so far distributed food aid to approximately 24,000 refugee families. It has the support of a spectrum of personalities, cutting across all barriers.

YB Hannah Yeoh had kindly agreed to launch Feed a Family ‘19. She was then the Deputy Minister to the Ministry of Family, Women and Community Development.

The picture shows Carefugees acvtivist and supporter Dato’ Dr Musa Mohd Nordin playing the good host to YB Hannah, our VIP guest.

To suggest anything else is not only irresponsible but also malicious. To shamelessly exploit a charity event that highlights the marginalized in our society is pitiful.
