KUALA LUMPUR: Popular comedian, actor and director Harith Iskander is serious about helping Malaysians suffering as a result of the on-going Movement Control Order (MCO) and has offered them a lifeline called Hope.
Harith, 54, has formed his own non-governmental organisation (NGO) The Hope Branch to help those in dire need of basic necessities.
A staunch supporter of the grassroots White Flag initiative which reaches out to Malaysians in distress, he said in a TikTok message today: "If you see a white flag at any house or building, meet the occupants and ask them what they want and how you can help. And if you can't help, please contact my organisation The Hope Branch.
"We in The Hope Branch are doing our best to channel basic needs to Malaysians most affected by the lockdown. Give us a call, and provide details such as your address and phone number so that we can reach out to you. Let's help each other, Malaysians!"
Harith also expressed concern over the rising number of suicides around the country.
"This has greatly shocked me. People are really suffering and have been driven to this. We must show them that we care."
The Hope Branch can be contacted at 019-7093103.
