SEVERAL needy students were all smiles when they received laptops for their studies from OHM Group during a simple ceremony in Penang.

Its executive director Ong Soo Yong said a total of 100 computers worth RM136,000 would be donated to students from B40 families.

“I hope these students will benefit from the donation which is part of our company’s corporate social responsibility programme.

“Last year, we also donated over 2,000 essential items to medical frontliners in the state,” he said when contacted recently.

The laptops were handed over to Batu Maung assemblyman Datuk Abdul Halim Hussain at his service centre for the ceremony.

Abdul Halim said the computers would greatly benefit the students as their families could not afford to buy them for online learning.

“Four schools will benefit from the donation.

“Education is a basic human right and I hope the pandemic will not affect the studies of poor students in the long run,” he said.

Also present at the simple presentation ceremony was the group’s charity division founder Datin Ooi Seok Eng.

OHM Group is an established housing development company in Malaysia with multiple successful projects.
