THE Super Force Security Service (SFSS) protects individuals from falling victim to crime.

Unfortunately, 330 of its employees were left vulnerable after Nepal was struck by an earthquake.

The company stepped in to contribute RM100,000 to the employees from Nepal.

Nepal ambassador to Malaysia Dr Niranjan Man Singh Basnyat attended the cheque handover ceremony.

“The earthquake had a devastating effect not only on the people, but also Nepal’s economy.

“About 8,700 people died and 23,000 were injured, while around 500,000 buildings collapsed, damaging some of our heritage sites as well,” he said.

Dr Niranjan added that the Nepal Embassy in Kuala Lumpur had collected RM1.2mil in donations and about 130 tonnes of relief materials.

“It will take about five to 10 years to rebuild the country.

“We hope donor countries and private companies will assist us to rebuild our economy,” he said.

In addition to the donation, SFSS gave 20 of their most affected employees pocket money and flight tickets home to help their families, said chief executive officer Wan Asmadi Wan Ahmad Najib.

“Our employees are an asset so we must take care of them and show our appreciation for their service,” he said.

SFSS executive director Datuk Abdul Rahman Harun added the donation was given directly to their Nepali employees to help them rebuild their houses.

“More than half of our 580 staff are from Nepal,” said Abdul Rahman.

The security service company was established in 1995, servicing organisations such as YTL Group, Customs, Star Hill Kuala Lumpur, Andaman Group, Immigration Department and J.W. Marriot, where the event was held.
