The families also received groceries and cookies worth RM800 each when a team led by IJM Land senior general manager (central region) Datuk Hoo Kim See visited their homes.
Hoo said the charity programme was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility to ease the families’ burden in preparation for Chinese New Year.
“It is our hope to be able to continuously make a difference and help transform the lives of the underprivileged with such initiatives,” he said.
Hoo said his team at IJM Land, which has been operating in Seremban for the past 24 years, had over the years, met many families in need of help.
“As a company that practises corporate social responsibility, we believe that creating such initiatives will bring about positive change to these families.
“And ever since then, we at IJM Land have never failed to support or assist those in dire need,” he said.
One of the recipients was Ng Kuan Lee, a single mother who works as an accounts clerk and has to provide for her two children aged seven and five and her ageing mother-in-law.
Her husband died in 2016 following a heart attack.
The second recipient was Joan Tin Tin, who works as a part-time cleaner to support her three sons and mother-in-law while
the third was Siew Yoong, who works independently to support her children aged 13 and 10, and her blind husband.
Hoo said IJM Land firmly believed that every needy individual, including the less fortunate, should not be neglected, especially during festive seasons.
“Let us all celebrate this joyous celebration together as we continue to honour the tradition of giving while creating a trail of beautiful memories,” he said.
