THE catastrophic damage caused by the recent floods in Temerloh proved not to be a challenge too big for Yayasan CCM, a subsidiary of Chemical Company of Malaysia Berhad (CCM).
Around 45 CCM employees volunteered and assisted with the cleaning up of Rumah Sejahtera Warga Emas, Kampung Bangau Tanjung through a two-day flood relief aid programme.
Yayasan CCM contributed essential items such as mattresses, blankets, pillows and cooking utensils to 10 residents of the home to help them get back on their feet after the floods.
“We are glad to be able to contribute back to the community, especially in their time of need.
“This devastating calamity has truly brought out the best in Malaysians of all races working in unity to assist those affected. Yayasan CCM is certainly proud to be part of this,” said CCM chairman Datuk Sri Azalina Datuk Othman Said.
Azalina thanked all CCM employees for their willingness to help those in need without hesitation.
“Through our contribution and assistance, we hope to help alleviate the hardship faced by the affected families and communities, giving them the support and strength to rebuild their lives again,” she added.
CCM also contributed essential medical supplies and health supplements worth more than RM50,000 in collaboration with the Malaysian Integrated Medical Professionals Association (MIMPA), the International Medical University (IMU) and directly to 25 local pre-schools in the states of Kelantan and Pahang.
Through the GLC circle disaster network, the company collaborated with Mercy Malaysia to donate post-floods cleaning kits worth RM50,000.
The company also contributed RM10,000 under its Pintar School programme to help two of its adopted schools; SK Padang Garong in Kota Baru and SK Sungai Selad in Bintulu, which were affected by the floods.
