Shell's 'community station' - more than just a fuel stop

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country last year, Shell Setia Alam manager Suraya Surawa felt that the petrol station could be more than a pit-stop for drivers to fill up their tanks. 

Wanting to help those in need, the premises became a "community station" where people facing hardship could come by and take basic items from a community food box, an initiative well-received by donors and recipients. 

Fueled by its success, Shell has expanded the programme to 54 of its stations in the Klang Valley. It will also be implemented in Sabah and Sarawak soon.  

The initiative is also in cooperation with NGO Volunteers Unite which collects data of those in need for Shell Malaysia staff members to deliver the goods directly to recipients. 

According to Shell Malaysia managing director Shairan Huzani Husain, the programme is not intended for commercial gains but as a platform to lend a hand to anyone in need of aid during these tough times.  

"We do not need to know who donated the goods neither do we need to reveal those on the receiving end," he said.
