SME CORP. MALAYSIA BRINGS HARI RAYA CHEER TO 35 CHILDREN FROM ORPHANAGE

Some 20 SME Corp.
Malaysia employees visited Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim dan Miskin, Baitul
Saidatina Khadijah on 29 July 2013, and
brought smiles to 35 children during the Shopping Amal Raya Programme organised
by SME Corp. Malaysia.
The children from the
centre were brought to Pasaraya Mydin at USJ Subang Jaya and accorded with
RM150 each to shop for new clothes, shoes, songkok and tudung, among other
items for the Hari Raya celebration.

Themed “Terima lah
Kasih”, this Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme was initiated to inculcate
the spirit of volunteerism and community service among SME Corp. Malaysia’s
personnel. This outing was an opportunity for the volunteers to strengthen the
values of generosity and solidarity within the community and foster the Hari
Raya spirit of giving and sharing.

According to Dato’
Hafsah Hashim, Chief Executive Officer of SME Corp. Malaysia, this outreach
programme was intended to allow these children to experience the joy of
welcoming Syawal.

“We would like to
make these children feel special and spread a little cheer by inviting them to
celebrate with us during the festive season. Apart from this programme, we have
planned another big project whereby we will help the ophanage in getting
sponsors to create a better home for them,” she said.

SMEs should be more
involved in CSR programmes because they have a potent force to move CSR into
the right direction. Apart from that, they are also able to create or customise
CSR programmes that suit the community in the long run.

The Shopping Amal
Raya Programme was organised by Kelab SME Corp. Malaysia in collaboration with
AKRAB SME Corp. Malaysia and supported by several prominent companies.

Pertubuhan Kebajikan
Anak Yatim dan Miskin, Baitul Saidatina Khadijah which is located in Gombak,
Selangor was established in 2000. This centre is a welfare organisation that
provides home and protection to 45 children.
