Kuala Lumpur – Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) yesterday, 17 December 2020, through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme ‘Sesama Mara’ distributed laptops as well as free internet data plans for a year to its employees to help their children with the 2021 school session during the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
This initiative which was organised by Air Selangor for the first time is expected to help 75 children of its 40 employees from the B40 income group with their online classes at home that has now become a new norm.
This contribution is one of its efforts to ease the burden of employees with children who have to go through online learning sessions at home for the 2020 school session and will be starting the new school session in 2021. The ‘Sesama Mara’ programme is a grassroots initiative aimed at helping its surrounding community as well as strengthening Air Selangor’s relationship with the community from various walks of life such as the local community, residential associations, local authorities, and non-governmental organisations.
Under the ‘Sesama Mara’ programme recently, Air Selangor has launched a bank account for the Box of Hope initiative to encourage the public to donate online without having to go to any Village Grocer branches or any Air Selangor district offices. The proceeds from these donations will be used to provide essential food items to families in need. Donations can be made through CIMB Bank Berhad account, 80-0798511-8. Currently, a total of 310 families have been successfully assisted through Air Selangor’s ‘Sesama Mara’ Box of Hope.
The ‘Sesama Mara’ programme is Air Selangor’s effort and commitment in working together with the stakeholders and motivating the community to help those in need to move forward, especially in these challenging times.
