THE PROBLEM


Since the outbreak of COVID-19, hand sanitisers and face masks became a daily necessity for us. While we might be privileged enough to have sufficient supplies, many underserved communities do not have adequate access due to the logistical and financial barriers. The inaccessibility of healthcare supplies among underserved communities such as the urban poor and refugees causes a risk in COVID-19 outspread. We believe that no one should be left out in the equation, and everyone should have an equal chance of preventing COVID-19 outspread.

THE SOLUTION


SERUM aims to provide hand sanitisers and face masks for 1,950 beneficiaries from underserved communities such as urban poor and refugees across Selangor. For every RM15 donated: RM5 is utilised to provide 50ml hand sanitiser; another RM5 for 5 face masks; RM5 to support the refugee product (coaster) made by the communities in need. In return, you will receive the coaster as a token of appreciation!

[For donors who donated RM15 and above, kindly fill-up the form at https://forms.gle/1DMb1NjB1Qb3skCw7 for you to receive our lovely coaster!]

Through forming a partnership with the supplier, the hand sanitisers and face masks are supplied at cost-price, maximising the impact and every single cent received by SERUM. SERUM also collaborates with NGOs and social enterprises on-the-ground to ensure each of the supplies is channeled to the communities that are truly in need. 

THE IMPACT


1,950 underserved beneficiaries will receive 50ml of hand sanitisers and 5 pieces face masks per person. This will further prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the dense population, ensuring everyone has an equal chance of preventing the outspread. 

Goal Breakdown

Goal 1 - Hand sanitisers . Amount Needed: MYR3,250.00

On April 2020, we successfully fundraised and provided 327 hand sanitisers to 287 families from the underserved communities with our partnered NGOs, namely:

  1. Taylor's Community - 150 bottles for the refugee communities
  2. Relawan MBM - 80 bottles for the B40 communities
  3. Malaysia Karen Organisation - 80 bottles for the refugee communities
  4. Tanma Federation - 17 bottles for the refugee communities

This success was achieved collectively with our partner Septhus as well.

On 16th of May, SERUM has partnered with NGOhub to launch the Fundraise From Home Program. The aim is to upskill youths in fundraising aspects via a 2-hour workshop, then utilise the skills they have learnt by fundraising for SERUM for 1 week. In a mere 1 week, we have 22 youths from AIESEC and Enactus UNMC fundraised RM 4,335.07, collectively achieved 111.16% of the goals set.


13-JUN-2020

During May, SERUM has successfully raised RM 6,500 in total with 151 donors and 21 fundraisers. With that, we were able to provide 350 bottles of hand sanitisers (50ml per beneficiary) and 3,250 face masks (5 face masks per beneficiary) for the underserved communities. The NGOs that we partnered with were:

  1. Malaysia Karen Organisation - 300 bottles of 100ml hand sanitisers and 3,000 face masks for the refugees
  2. Tanma Federation - 50 bottles of 50ml hand sanitisers and 250 face masks for the refugees

About the Organization/Project behind this Campaign

SERUM


Since the outbreak of COVID-19, hand sanitisers and face masks became a daily necessity for us. While we might be privileged enough to have sufficient supplies, many underserved communities do not have adequate access due to the logistical and financial barriers. The inaccessibility of healthcare supplies among underserved communities such as the urban poor and refugees causes a risk in COVID-19 outspread. We believe that no one should be left out in the equation, and everyone should have an equal chance of preventing COVID-19 outspread.

SERUM aims to provide hand sanitisers and face masks for 2,000 beneficiaries from underserved communities such as urban poor and refugees across Selangor. Every RM10 donated will allow us to provide 50ml of hand sanitiser and 5 face masks per beneficiary for the communities in need. Through forming a partnership with the supplier, the hand sanitisers and face masks are supplied at cost-price, maximising the impact and every single cent received by SERUM. SERUM also collaborates with NGOs and social enterprises on-the-ground to ensure each of the supplies is channeled to the communities that are truly in need. 

During April, we successfully provided 327 hand sanitisers for 287 families; 350 bottles of hand sanitisers and 3,250 face masks for 650 beneficiaries during May through collaborations with NGOs such as Tanma Foundation, Taylor's Community, Majlis Belia Malaysia, Kedai Jalanan UM, Malaysian Karen Organisation and Impact Malaysia. Still, there is an increasing demand from the NGOs and social enterprises in Malaysia as the communities they are serving are in need of these supplies, fearing that there would be an increase of COVID-19 outspread across the dense populations with inadequate access to healthcare supplies. 

Therefore, we would like to invite you to join us on this impact journey. We deeply thank every single one of you for your kind generosity and contribution.
