Integrative health and wellness company and the world leader in the global Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Market, dōTERRA, pledges to donate RM40,000 as part of their COVID-19 contributions benefitting the underprivileged and affected communities in Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley.
Joining hands with four local NGOs, namely Tenaganita, Refuge for the Refugees (RFTR), Dapur Jalanan KL and Liga Rakyat Demokratik (LRD), doTERRA Malaysia will channel its efforts to help those in dire need, notably the low-income families from B40, single mothers, daily wage workers, migrants and refugees.
In encouraging collective community outreach in these uncertain times, the company has kickstarted the ‘Engage in Good’ campaign, running from 21st-30th April 2020, encouraging the dōTERRA community to support the cause with the sales of three products; Magnolia Touch, Amavi Touch and Balance Touch.
All sales proceeds from the campaign, as well as the matching amount from dōTERRA Malaysia, will be channelled directly towards supporting the COVID-19 community outreach.
The latest initiative, conducted in light of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, is part of dōTERRA Healing Hands™ Initiative, where the company periodically works with local NGOs and develops special donation drives to aid communities in need.
General Manager of dōTERRA Malaysia, Ethan Wang, mentioned that the company has always been firm believers in the power of giving back to the community and bringing about such positive social impact has always been a key proponent of the company since its inception here in April 2017.
“Being strong advocates of social betterment, we adhere to our global dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ which focuses on empowering communities and supporting charitable organizations related to self-reliance, healthcare, education, sanitation and the fight against human trafficking.
“We often adopt similar approaches in our local markets, and in Malaysia, our wide network and close affiliations with local NGOs such as Tenaganita has allowed us to contribute efficiently to various outreach programmes including providing financial support for the recovery and empowerment of women and child survivors of human trafficking in KL and Penang as well as funding The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) to obtain a vehicle to help with logistics, to name a few,” said Wang.
Ethan also stressed that dōTERRA Malaysia will continue doing their part to contribute positively when called upon and praised the ongoing efforts in the country’s fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.
“While the frontliners, NGOs and many different organisations are coming together to bring stability and provide relief for the affected and the underprivileged, what really matters is for all Malaysians to contribute equally by practising social distancing, maintaining good health and staying at home to flatten the curve.
“Staying true to our company’s values and brand ethos, dōTERRA Malaysia will continue to prioritise social impact and contribute positively to the society whenever possible,” he added.
