"The Prime Minister's proposal to allocate RM10 million to the Palestine Humanitarian Fund is in line with our commitment to support those affected by the conflict in Gaza.
"Therefore, McDonald's Malaysia is joining hands with the government in supporting this funding in the hope that it will help the Palestinian people who are facing difficult times," he explained.
He said, McDonald's donation is expected to directly support the humanitarian aid mission in Gaza, thereby meeting the critical needs of those affected by the conflict.
