THE Good Samaritan Home (GSH) building fund received a big boost in the form of a RM2.5mil donation from Hextar Group of Companies.

The group representatives presented a mock cheque to GSH at an event, accompanied by gift-giving and a hearty Christmas lunch.

The purpose of the new building is to cater to the growing need to house more needy children within the community as the current orphanage building has limited space.

The proposed new building consists of four zones in a single modern building and comes with facilities such as dormitories for boys and girls, study rooms, libraries, utilities rooms, administrative office and a large play area.

The project is expected to be completed by March 2022.

The new building, which will be located in Aman Perdana, Klang, will cost RM3.5mil and GSH has managed to raise RM1mil from generous donors since 2019.

Agrochemical company Hextar said it was delighted to sponsor the balance required as part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) initiative.

“At Hextar, we strive to be a responsible organisation and we always look for opportunities to give back to the community, especially during these difficult times.

“GSH’s noble mission is aligned with one of our CSR’s pillars that is to help underprivileged children.

“As an organisation, we have the responsibility to provide these children a better chance to make it in life.

“Hextar is delighted to be able to assist GSH, ” said Hextar Group chief executive officer Datuk Ong Choo Meng.
