Property developer Boustead Properties Bhd has responded to the plight of thousands in Johor who were impacted by the recent floods.
The company, along with its subsidiary Mutiara Rini Sdn Bhd, donated RM20,000 through the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS).
The contribution, presented to MRCS national committee for community services and health deputy chairman Datuk Rashidi Md Nor in Johor Baru, will be used to purchase food and other essentials.
Boustead Properties acting
chief executive officer Izaddeen Daud said the company was
saddened to hear about the loss of lives and the plight of flood victims who had lost their homes to the floods.
“We hope our support for the relief operations will help lighten the victims’ burden and get them through these trying times.
“We also want to commend MRCS and the authorities for their tremendous relief efforts and selfless dedication in providing much-needed aid at a time when the country continues to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, ” he said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Rashidi said MRCS would like to record their heartfelt thanks to Boustead for helping the flood victims in Johor.
“We look forward to more corporate players joining in this effort to extend assistance to the flood victims as they rebuild their lives, ” he said.
Mutiara Rini Sdn Bhd launched its first 582ha mixed residential township property development --- Taman Mutiara Rini --- in Skudai, Johor in 1996.
Through the years, it has grown into a reputable township in Johor, with facilities such as schools, malls, petrol stations, football fields, cricket and hockey pitches as well as a 25ha urban forest. — By REMAR NORDIN
