LBS Foundation, an organisation that manages the corporate social responsibility activities for LBS Bina Group, has made contributions to non-governmental organisations and individuals who were impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions caused by the implementation of the enhanced movement control order.
Among the recipients is Persatuan Kebajikan Chen Ai in Petaling Jaya, which cares for the disabled and elderly who suffer from mental disorders, spinal cord injuries, learning disabilities, autism and other conditions.
The donations from LBS Foundation are set to be used to aid staff members as well as residents of the welfare home in covering its monthly expenses.
Additionally, last month, it contributed a few hospital beds and funds to Hospital Banting’s emergency unit in Selangor.
This contribution is used to help the hospital deal with Covid-19 cases referred to the hospital, which has a hybrid referral status.
Simultaneously, the foundation made donations to Tzu Chi Malaysia Taiwan Buddhist Foundation to help the Malaysia Solidarity Covid-19 Fund in covering the medical needs in several hospitals as well as low-income families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Not limited to assisting organisations and relevant charities, the foundation also got in touch with 13 families in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Penang, whose incomes were severely affected by the pandemic and are in serious need of various forms of assistance, be it in terms of daily essentials or medical needs.
Through a collaboration with Pharmaniaga Bhd, the families listed will receive cash donations as well as basic medical supplies for daily use.
Tan Sri Lim Hock San, who is part of the LBS Foundation board of trustees, said the Covid-19 outbreak had negatively impacted the lives of some communities and completely overturned their lives.
“We hope this contribution will lessen the burden of those affected as well as serve as a form of encouragement for the communities that are capable of contributing to assist the needy during these challenging times,” he said.
