Dixon Liu, 32, from Malaysia, has been helping people in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding area who suffered serious financial strain after losing their jobs during lockdown.

Dixon’s company, Thexacomp Solutions, has been one of the many organisations at the forefront of this humanitarian work, working to provide basic supplies to those most affected by the pandemic.

Its latest mission involved providing medicine and food to a care centre which supports 105 disabled children and adults.

‘We are very pleased to be able to offer help to those in need during these difficult times and glad to see that our work is having a real impact on the day-to-day lives of people in the area,’ Dixon said of his company’s humanitarian work in the Malaysian capital.

Thexacomp Solutions has been working alongside Robin Food, which the company developed to provide necessities such as nappies and baby formula to families with babies.

So far 3.5 tonnes of food and baby formula have been delivered to small villages in Pahang from donations to Robin Food.

We are very pleased to be able to offer help to those in need during these difficult times and glad to see that our work is having a real impact on the day-to-day lives of people in the area.

Dixon studied BA (Hons) Graphic Design and graduated in 2011.

He set up Thexacomp Solutions based on work he did in his final year project at the University.

The company initially worked to provide essential IT solutions to businesses and has now expanded into medical robotics, 3D graphic design and programming, and broadcasting.

Dixon believes that his company has a responsibility to do what it can to look after people, particularly after it was fortunate enough to endure through the pandemic.

He said: ‘Companies generate their revenue from customers and society. During these trying times, companies should step up and help in any way possible.

‘We will continue to assist in years to come.’

Dixon has further plans to help those in need by providing laptops and computers to underprivileged families to enhance digital learning and education.
