Kuala Lumpur, 23 Mar 2013 - As part of its on-going CSR programme, UMW and MERCY Malaysia took part in organising a mobile clinic programme held at Yayasan Chow Kit or formerly known as Rumah Nursalam. The programme is part of a series of community centred events held under the UMW 1Malaysia Programme. Its internal volunteer group, the UMW Community Champions, together with MERCY, spent the day by conducting therapy and health educational programmes with the resident children of Yayasan Chow Kit. Talks on sex education as well as oral hygiene and awareness were also conducted with the children.
UMW President & Group CEO, Datuk Syed Hisham Syed Wazir said, “This is our way in helping to develop a caring society and at the same time promote the 1Malaysia concept among our Community Champions through the various activities that we have planned for the year”.
The UMW Group is scheduled to organise a visit to the paediatric ward of Hospital Tuanku Fauziah in Kangar to distribute RM7,000 worth of hampers on 4 April 2013 as part of the series of CSR activities under the UMW 1Malaysia Programme.
The UMW Group has a long history of supporting a number of non-profit and non-political organisations through its community programmes. The Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy is comprehensive and goes beyond just funding charitable projects, benchmarking against international best practices in the marketplace, the workplace, the environment and the community.
