STAFF from Shell Malaysia visited underprivileged children at Yayasan Chow Kit. They are among 3,500 children nationwide who will benefit from development programmes supported by the company.
The team was led by Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd managing director Azman Ismail.
Shell is donating RM140,000 each or a total of RM700,000 to five charity organisations namely Yayasan Chow Kit, The Budimas Charitable Foundation, The Nasi Lemak Project, Persatuan Kebajikan Pendidikan Kanak-Kanak Miskin Sabah and Yayasan Kemajuan Insan Sarawak.
“We believe that the only way to have a strong impact on children’s futures is to help them stand on their own.
“We are focused on working with our charity partners on knowledge and skills programmes that will help children become confident, independent and well-rounded adults in the future,” said Azman.
These include literacy, communications, information technology and financial literacy classes as well as personality development courses, livelihood training and other capacity-building programmes.
In July this year, Shell conducted a three-day balik kampung campaign called “Pump 14, 16, 18” to raise money for charity.
The campaign saw Shell donating 1 sen for every litre of fuel pumped at its stations nationwide on July 14, 16 and 18.
