KUALA LUMPUR: Ekovest Bhd’s managing director Tan Sri Lim Keng Cheng has donated RM1mil to Chong Hwa Independent High School while celebrating his mother’s 80th birthday together with celebrities from the business, education and political world.

He and his mother Lee Ai presented the RM1mil cheque to a representative of the school, witnessed by his three siblings and VIP guests headed by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng over the weekend.

The donation was made in the name of Lee Ai.

Lim, known in the property and construction sector and his support for Chinese education, is the chairman of the management committee of Chong Hwa Independent (Chinese) High School – a leading Chinese high school in Jalan Ipoh, here.

Paying tribute to his mother at the dinner of 65 tables, Lim narrated how his mother had single-handedly brought up four children after his father passed away in 1976.

Lee Ai had operated a small sundry shop for 50 years to feed four children and educate them.

“It’s never an easy task. To repay her motherly love, I have promised her that I will be someone who can stand firm and hold the sky, be a good citizen of our country and contribute to society.

“For this reason, the donation will be made under my mother’s name,” Lim said in a report.

Lim, a nephew of Tan Sri Lim Kang Hoo, also thank his relatives and the long-serving employees of Ekovest.

Kang Hoo was in the news recently for his involvement in the revival of Bandar Malaysia, together with his Chinese partner.
