GUARDIAN Malaysia organised several charity programmes to bring some cheer to the underprivileged.
“During this festive season, most people are with their families but some are not so fortunate.
“As such, we felt that this was an appropriate time to give back to them, ” said Guardian Health And Beauty Sdn Bhd senior manager of corporate affairs and events Jennifer Wong.
The health and beauty chain gave 55 children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary KL a shopping treat at a Guardian store.
The home is registered with the Welfare Department. Its residents include children from poor and dysfunctional families, single parents and orphans.
The children were given the opportunity to shop for whatever they wanted at the Guardian store in Berjaya Times Square and received presents.
Karyll Chee, a Guardian Face of Healthy Beauty winner, was present to spend time with the children.
In Kuching, Guardian worked with The Spring shopping centre in Kuching and Bintulu to deliver more than RM9,000 worth of daily necessities to Sarawak’s Children Cancer Society and Extrameal Bintulu.
Guardian also visited children from Sarawak’s Children Cancer Society who were being treated at Kuching General Hospital where they were given Tokidoki plush toys.
Guardian customers also contributed their own cheer to the needy by buying products at Guardian stores at The Spring shopping centre in Kuching and Bintulu, and dropping them off at the cashier counters to be delivered to Hope Place Kuching, The Salvation Army and Extrameal Bintulu.
