The children of Pertubuhan Rumah Anak Yatim Berkat Kasih in Klang were treated to a fun time during a visit by Berjaya Corporation Bhd (BCorp) chief executive officer Datuk Seri Robin Tan as well as BCorp senior management and staff.
The home, also known as House of Love, provides shelter and care for 32 children between the ages of four and 18, and is one of the social initiatives under Yayasan Kebajikan Berkat Kasih.
“I commend Joseph Pang and his team of dedicated volunteers for their relentless efforts in reaching out to the less fortunate.
“I hope their unwavering dedication in serving the needy will continue to inspire others to do the same,” said Tan.
Other social initiatives by the foundation are a food bank that provides monthly provisions to approximately 200 needy families, an urban gardening project and a volunteer movement that serves the needy.
The foundation also organises a volunteer training certification programme for those interested in becoming social workers.
During the visit, Tan presented ang pow to the children, staff and volunteers.
They were later treated to lunch by Kenny Rogers Roasters and desserts from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
BCorp adopts a multi-faceted approach in its corporate social responsibility initiatives to bring meaningful change to the communities in need.
Among the initiatives that BCorp supports are educational programmes for underprivileged children and youths, community outreach programmes for the poor and providing aid to health-related causes, environmental awareness, international humanitarian aid and animal causes.
