COMFORT Gloves Bhd has been carrying out several corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes over the past few months to assist the underprivileged and communities in need.
Its managing director Cheang Phoy Ken said in a press statement that many families and charity organisations were facing financial difficulties due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said recipients of the CSR contributions were mostly from Perak, as the medical glove maker was based in Taiping.
The contributions comprised:
School fees for more than 500 students in 15 primary and secondary schools as well as two children’s homes in Taiping.
School uniforms and textbooks for 30 students from Hua Lian High School, a private Chinese secondary school in Taiping.
