Seri Austin Brings Joy to the less fortunate
during Pre-CNY Visit
07 February 2018 - In conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration, UMLand Seri Austin brought early Chinese New Year cheers to the residents of Persatuan Kebajikan Orang-Orang Istimewa, home for the disabled.
Leading the initiative was CEO KK Wong, followed by 30 employees. They brought along goodies and Marrybrown lunch sets for the residents at the centre aged between 20 and 50. A contribution of RM5,000 was presented to the home’s advisor, Ms Saraswati Letchumanan in support of the home’s daily operations and necessities.
In the spirit of the Chinese New Year tradition, “Ang Pow” and mandarin oranges were distributed to the residents wishing them good health and happiness. They were also treated to a clown performance, mascot, magic show, singing and dancing before sharing the hearty meal together with the team from UMLand Seri Austin.
The main objective of the annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative is to reach out to the less fortunate, especially during the festive occasions. UMLand aims to promote the spirit of giving and volunteerism among employees, which also serves as a platform for them to connect with other members of the community.
“The visit was organised to spread joy and spend quality time together with them during this festive season as part of our community outreach efforts,” said KK Wong.
Established in 1992, the Persatuan Kebajikan Orang-Orang Istimewa is located in Kempas, Johor Bahru. It currently shelters about 50 disabled members aged 20 years and above. The non-profit organisation was set up for the purpose of providing support and basic necessities such as food and medicine to the disabled who have no immediate family.
