CELCOM Axiata Bhd organised a buka puasa event with the Kuala Lumpur Traffic Police recently.
Celcom began the day by distributing 300 safety helmets to the traffic police officers in the presence of Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
Celcom Axiata chief executive officer Datuk Seri Shazalli Ramly said the gesture was Celcom’s way appreciating the commitment and contribution of the police force.
“These dedicated men and women sacrifice their time to work diligently, to maintain the safety of Malaysians on the road.
“This is our way of honouring them,” he said when presenting the safety helmets to the traffic police on duty at the Jalan Bandar Police Station here.
Shazalli said the collaborative programme had been initiated in 2005 and had matured over the years.
He added that Celcom also contributed to the welfare of officers who had been injured, those who suffered long-term illnesses and for the immediate welfare of the children of officers who die in the line of duty.
“We actively participate in numerous safety campaigns, such as the Safety Riding campaign held in February, for the benefit of Celcom employees, during the festive seasons and all year round,” he said.
Shazalli later accompanied Kuala Lumpur police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Tajudin Md Isa and Kuala Lumpur traffic police chief ACP Mohd Nadzri Hussain to distribute 300 food packages to members of the public and traffic police personnel on duty at Pudu Sentral, Jalan Tun Perak and Jalan Esfahan.
The packages consisted of bubur lambuk, dates and water that had been prepared by Celcom staff and traffic police personnel earlier in the day.
Also present were Senior Deputy Commissioner Datuk Muhammad Fuad Abu Zarim, Celcom Axiata chief technology, operations and experience officer Ramanathan Sathiamutty and Celcom Axiata chief business services and solutions officer Afizulazha Abdullah.
