PENGURUSAN Air Selangor Sdn Bhd celebrated its first anniversary by engaging the community in Gombak, Sabak Bernam and Petaling.
The initiative themed “Appreciating Communities” was aimed at giving back to consumers living in the three areas in a more meaningful way and providing assistance to those in need.
Air Selangor kicked off the celebration with the children from Rumah Anak-Anak Yatim dan Miskin, Sabak Bernam.
This was followed by an initiative to help underprivileged families in Kampung Selayang Baru, Gombak.
Next, Air Selangor organised an outreach programme with residents of People’s Housing Project (PPR) Lembah Pantai in Kuala Lumpur to conclude its week-long first anniversary celebration.
The community engagement initiatives included gotong-royong at the surrounding areas in these locations besides recreational activities with residents.
Air Selangor also donated essential food items to 131 underprivileged families through its Box of Hope initiative, which is under the “Sesama Mara” programme in collaboration with Village Grocer and Yayasan Food Bank.
At PPR Lembah Pantai, Air Selangor chief executive officer Suhaimi Kamaralzaman was present alongside corporate communications head Elina Baseri and head of distribution, Kelvin Siew Weng Hoe.
A total of 120 packs of essential food items from Box of Hope were distributed to underprivileged families at the public housing project.
During the community engagement with Kampung Selayang Baru residents, 11 underprivileged families received donations of grocery items from Box of Hope.
The team from Air Selangor also helped repair a villager’s house in the gotong-royong activity.
At the event, Elina was accompanied by Gombak region head Tengku Mohd Safari Tengku Ahmad.
They were joined by a representative from the Templer assemblyman’s office and Selayang Baru village chief Mohd Abdul Ghani Mustafa.
At Rumah Anak-Anak Yatim dan Miskin, Sabak Bernam, 22 orphans received new sports equipment and electrical appliances as well as daily grocery items donated by Air Selangor.
Also present at this event was Air Selangor’s Sabak Bernam region head, Muhd Miftahuddin Mat Hayin.
The utility company said it would continue to build a stronger relationship with the communities in Klang Valley as part of its efforts to deliver the best possible experience to consumers.
Air Selangor was inaugurated on Sept 13 as the sole licence holder of water supply services in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
The consolidation exercise was to ensure that as the new official entity, Air Selangor achieved one of the key strategic objectives to integrate the water treatment and distribution operations more effectively and efficiently.
As of Dec 31,2019, Air Selangor provides water supply to approximately 8.4 million consumers across Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
