Home Shopping Network joins forces with top vendor HETCH in the battle against COVID-19
KUALA LUMPUR, 4 August 2021 – WOWSHOP, a subsidiary of Malaysia’s leading fully integrated media company, Media Prima Berhad and Malaysia’s most beloved Home Shopping network, has proudly embarked on its very first Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) campaign with HETCH, a top vendor on the platform through, its WOWSHOP X CARES campaign.
The campaign was launched on 20 July 2021 via WOWSHOP’s official Facebook and Instagram accounts, and notifications via email and media to all its customers. It will run till 31 August 2021, and is aimed at giving back to the nation in battling the Covid-19 pandemic by contributing to Government hospitals via the collection of funds.
The funds will be channeled towards the purchase of medical equipment in treating Covid-19 patients, as well as other patients, through the Bantuan Kemanusiaan Covid-19 campaign under the Media Prima-NSTP Humanitarian Fund (“MPNHF”). For every HETCH product sold on WOWSHOP’s multiple platforms during the campaign period, a total of RM10 will be donated to MPNHF’s Bantuan Kemanusiaan Covid-19 campaign.
The company decided to kick off their first CSR campaign during the pandemic as part of its commitment to being a responsible business entity, especially during a time when support and assistance to those affected by the Covid-19 infection is much needed. It is also a gesture of appreciation to the frontliners who have been working endlessly during this crisis.
Datin Norashikin Habibur Rahman, Chief Operating Officer of WOWSHOP said, “We care and want to give back to society. It is our responsibility as capable Malaysians to contribute any help we can during this terrible crisis to aid the Covid-19 patients. At the same time, most of our frontliners have been tirelessly battling this disease, and they need as much support as they can get. Together with HETCH, who decided to partner with us as they sincerely believe in humanity above religion and race, and truly appreciate the selfless service of our frontliners.”
HETCH, a brand established in 2007, is one of WOWSHOP’S top vendors offering various quality home living appliances including Air Fryers, Vacuum Cleaners, Blenders and more. The company decided to embark on this CSR initiative taking into account the number of lives, jobs and loved ones that have been lost in this pandemic, and in doing so, to partner with WOWSHOP to contribute and do their part for society.
“We come with one heart and together with WOWSHOP we will do our best to give back to our beloved nation. Alone we can do so little but together we can achieve great things! Let’s pray for Malaysia to be great again,” said Vincent Chong, Chief Executive Officer of IN & EX HOLDINGS SDN. BHD, parent company of HETCH
