IN CONJUNCTION with Deepavali, Sunway has released a video entitled Light of Hope, highlighting the significance of togetherness, joy, giving, sharing and unity.
The video complements the #SunwayforGood Deepavali Cheer initiative, which provides families in the B40 group with food aid.
The Light of Hope video is inspired by a true story of the #SunwayforGood Food Bank
programme and underscores Deepavali as a celebration symbolising the triumph of light over darkness.
The video centres on Raj, whose wife Dhinie and their daughter have lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic and are trying to earn an income selling homemade murukku, coconut candy and jelebi.
The family’s hardship sees them losing the hope of celebrating Deepavali.
However, they come to see a glimmer of light upon receiving assistance through the #SunwayforGood Food Bank programme.
The festive video can be viewed on Sunway Group’s social media sites.
Separately, Sunway has launched its Sunway Little Sunshine Child-care Centre as an enhancement to the group’s family-friendly policies.
The 5,000sq ft childcare centre at Sunway GEO, available exclusively to Sunway employees, will take in children from two months to three years.
At the launch of the childcare centre, Sunway chief human resources officer Foo Shiang
Wyne said the group started enhancing its family-friendly
policies in 2013 with childcare
subsidies in Real Kids Sunway for Sunway employees, followed by The Parenthood in 2016.
This year, she said, employee benefits were further enhanced with the introduction of the childcare centre.
“Sunway Little Sunshine Childcare Centre was conceptualised because of a rising need for childcare services among our employees.
“In 2019, we carried out a group-wide survey to understand our employees’ needs, and one of the key takeaways from the results showed more than 70% of the surveyed employees needed childcare services.
“We have invested significant time, effort and money to set up this centre.
“Sunway employees who wish to send their children to this centre only pay a subsidised fee from RM700 per month, ” said Foo.
This initiative is in addition to the existing maternity and paternity leave privileges available for Sunway employees.
Sunway also provides support for expectant and breastfeeding mothers, such as designated parking spaces, escort assistance by security officers and nursing rooms for female employees and visitors.
