Volvo Malaysia Continues Giving Back to the Society
Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the distributor for Volvo Trucks, Renault Trucks, Volvo Buses and Volvo Construction Equipment once again opened its doors to underprivileged children at their headquarters in Shah Alam. This annual charity event is part of Volvo Malaysia’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative in giving back to the society and this year, Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd made a contribution of RM10,000 to two underprivileged houses.
Jagaan Cahaya Kasih Bestari and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Seribu Harapan were presented with a cheque worth RM5,000 each to assist them with their basic daily needs. Volvo Malaysia practices tremendous care in selecting only grassroots-built and genuine non-profit organisations that largely rely on contribution from society that would benefit from their annual charity event.
Mats Nilsson, Managing Director of Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd, “It is the time of the year and it is a season of giving. We are very happy to have children from both houses and our families here in our headquarters; creating such lively and fun atmosphere. This is the second year of our annual charity event and we hope to continue giving back to the society more often moving on.”
Laughters broke through the air early morning at the renowned Swedish brand’s compound as more than 150 guests enjoyed themselves to the fun activities specially arranged by Volvo Malaysia. Underprivileged children from Jagaan Cahaya Kasih Bestari and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Seribu Harapan together with Volvo’s staff and their families were entertained with various mini games and lucky draws.
Aside from these activities, children and families were also treated to an interactive safety session of Volvo Truck’s global safety campaign ‘Stop, Look, Wave’. This campaign aims to raise children’s awareness on the importance of identifying blind spots and to practice safe behaviours in traffic especially when in the presence of large trucks. Volvo Trucks also recently announced their partnership with KidZania Kuala Lumpur on this initiative via the KidZania Go! – a KidZania mobile school outreach programme.
In November 2015, Volvo Malaysia held its 9th Volvo Golf World Challenge and partnered National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) for its annual charity drive which saw RM 24,000 raised from sales of Volvo Trucks and Titleist merchandise as well as the purchase of special drawings painted by the talented kids from NASOM.
