Firm donates RM400,000 to charity homes

DESPITE the current world economic situation, Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Berhad (STMB) continued with its corporate social responsibility of helping the needy.

Its newly launched Takaful myJalinan donated RM400,000 to four homes for the underprivileged in Selangor recently.

The recipients were Rumah Harapan Al-Khaadem (Home of Hope), Rumah Kebajikan Siti Khadijah, Rumah Anak Yatim Darul Izzah and Pusat Nur Hikmah.

The donation ceremony was held at the Home of Hope in Shah Alam with about 50 children from the homes and their guardians and representatives present.

STMB chairman Tan Sri Dr Hadenan Abdul Jalil gave away the donations to the homes’ representatives recently.

Also present were STMB group managing director Datuk Hassan Kamil and Home of Hope patron Tan Sri Desa Pachee.

Thanking STMB for its sincerity and support, Desa said the monetary assistance would go a long way to help the home and provide for the children.

Wheelchair-bound Norhidayah Mat Arif, 13, who lost both legs in a fire several years ago, was among those who witnessed the presentation.

Norhidayah is now being cared for by her blind mother.

Hadenan said the company recognises the need for concerted efforts by the public sector, corporate bodies and the public to undertake social-related programmes to alleviate the difficulties faced by the underprivileged.

"We hope Takaful myJalinan will continue to contribute significantly to strengthening the Social Safety Net initiated and advocated by the government," he added.
