Our collaboration serves as a powerful reminder of our mutual ability to bring about positive change. Working together, we are not only addressing hunger but fostering a sense of hope.

Over the past ten years, FBS and its traders have supported vulnerable communities with food and necessities during Ramadan. Since its first Ramadan charity initiative in 2014, FBS has donated over $1.3 million to philanthropic projects across Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and beyond.

This year, monetary contributions from FBS have been channeled to two Malaysian charities, SUKA Society and Dignity for Children Foundation. With the FBS’s support, they organized on-site Ramadan gift-giving initiatives. Donations from FBS were turned into essential grocery packages and heartwarming festive hot meals for more than 400 Malaysian families facing challenging life circumstances. Ramadan gifts ranged from indispensable kits to vital food supplies, offering financial relief to families in need and enabling them to celebrate the holy season.

Renee Koo, Head of Marketing & Communications at Dignity for Children Foundation, expressed her appreciation on behalf of the organization, stating, “We extend our deepest gratitude to FBS for their generous donation of USD 5,000 towards supporting our students’ families during the holy month of Ramadan. Contribution from FBS will have a significant impact on the lives of those we serve, enabling us to provide much-needed assistance to families facing financial hardship.

Dignity is honored to partner with FBS in our shared mission of promoting dignity and empowerment.”

Through FBS’s generous support, we have been able to impact the lives of 36 children without parents, provide assistance to 14 foster refugee families, and offer support to 130 human trafficking survivors. The beneficiaries we work with are truly grateful for the aid, as they can celebrate this special month with lifted spirits.
