McDonald’s Malaysia Stands with Palestine, Donates RM1 Million to Humanitarian Fund

KUALA LUMPUR: McDonald’s Malaysia, a business fully owned by Muslims in the country, has consistently voiced its support for the Palestinian cause and has donated RM1 million to the Palestinian Humanitarian Fund.

Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia, Datuk Azmir Jaafar, also mentioned that the fast-food restaurant’s employees have proactively raised over RM100,000 to aid those affected in Palestine.

“We are doing everything we can, and I encourage everyone to do the same. As a Muslim, I feel deeply saddened and pained by what is happening in Gaza.

“I stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Gaza and always pray for their well-being. We all have a humanitarian responsibility to help them in any way we can.

“United in fighting for the plight of the people in Gaza is crucial, but it should not be to the extent of causing harm to fellow Malaysians,” he said in a statement on Saturday.

He also expressed concern over recent acts of vandalism targeting McDonald’s premises, including the company’s signboards nationwide, which have caused distress and anxiety among the restaurant’s employees and the surrounding community.

Azmir stated that, besides vandalism, several aggressive actions towards the restaurant’s staff and customers are very worrying.

Therefore, he urged the public to refrain from any actions that would damage property.

“We are all Malaysians, so such behavior is very disheartening and unconstructive. The safety of our employees, who are also Malaysians, is our top priority.

“Vandalism and violence will not bring any benefits and will only result in worse consequences. Let us all strive to support Palestine with all our capabilities and in a responsible manner,” he said.

He also called on all Malaysians to express their views responsibly.
