TPM Brings Cheer To 50 Underpriviliged Kids

TANGGA BATU, MELAKA, July 17 – The joy of Hari Raya celebration for 50 underprivileged school children from Sekolah Kebangasaan Pantai Kundur was indeed a dream come true when Technology Park Malaysia Corporation Sdn Bhd came a calling to spread the festive season cheer.    

 The selected teenagers were treated to a shopping spree where each kid was given a voucher worth RM 150 to purchase new clothes and essential household consumables.

 The spirit of caring and sharing during the holy Ramadan month brought by TPM was presented to the underprivileged kids by the Deputy Minister of Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Datuk Dr. Abu Bakar Mohamad Diah.

 

Also present at the event to help the children choose their new Hari Raya wear was TPM President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Hj. Mohd Azman Shahidin and his team.

 During the purchase process, each child was also given a button badge of an STI career of their choice as engineers, scientists, researchers, programmers and entreprenuers. TPM employees accompanied the children to assist in the purchase and answer any questions about the career of their choice. This is an early measure of cultivating students\' interest in respective careers in science and technology.

 Azman said he was delighted with the gesture of TPM management to bring cheer to 50 kids and help spread the festive season joy to the poor in the rural area.

 “This initiative by TPM is a part of our corporate social responsibility in giving back to society during the festive season.

“We are indeed very touched to witness the happiness and delightful smiles of the kids who have been deprived of such simple things during the festive season. This initiative serves as a reminder to us to always practice compassion and be mindful of our gratitude for all the blessings,” he added.        

 Azman said TPM’s corporate social responsibility programme also included initiatives that are related to science, technology and innovation at grassroots levels.   

 “We fully appreciate the need to give back to society and one of the best ways of doing so is to perform our obligations by spreading and sharing the festive joys with the underprivileged, especially kids and single mothers,” he added.

 Since 2006, Technology Park Malaysia has made it an annual affair to host berbuka puasa celebration for the underprivileged children with selected homes in the Klang Valley and other states.
