WHILE the world is still battling the Covid-19 pandemic, Limkokwing University’s Heal the World Foundation continues to live up to its mission to make the world a better place.
On its latest campaign to spread holiday cheer and bring hope for the new year, Limkokwing — through the foundation — donated more than 300 hampers to some 50 old folks’ homes in Seri Kembangan, Subang, Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, Ampang, Rawang and Puchong on Dec 31,2020.
The hampers were prepared and donated by Limkokwing International staff who ensured Covid-19 protocols were followed throughout their visit to the homes.
Heal the World Foundation had planned a series of donations to orphanages, old folks’ homes, frontliners and various NGOs for the entire year.
Spearheaded by Limkokwing founding president Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing, the foundation donated millions in Malaysia and Africa to help alleviate challenges brought on by the pandemic.
In April 2020, it donated masks and bottled water worth RM60,000 to support frontliners in Malaysia.
“We want to contribute in whatever way possible to lessen the impact of the pandemic and to show our appreciation to our brave frontliners for their sacrifice, dedication and contribution during Malaysia’s hour of need.
“It is times like this that we really need to step up and be united, putting aside our differences, and work together in our collective fight against Covid-19, ” said Lim.
Last month, Limkokwing Botswana through Heal The World Foundation shone the spotlight on frontliners through the lighting of a four-storey Christmas tree – the biggest in the country — in addition to donations to various charities.
Limkokwing Lesotho and Eswatini also held events to spread the holiday spirit.
