STAR Foundation has received RM10,000 donation from Eastern Goh Sdn Bhd, an agent of Lonpac Insurance Bhd.
Its managing director Eastern Goh See Sin, who is also a chartered secretary and past president of Lions Clubs International District 398 B2 Malaysia, said he wanted to do his bit for the underprivileged community.
“This is a small contribution to Star Foundation in its efforts to assist the needy.
“It is meaningful that big companies like Star Media Group are able to set up their own charity arm to help the underprivileged through various programmes,” he said during the mock cheque presentation at Menara Star in Petaling Jaya.
Star Foundation chairman Tan Sri Chor Chee Heung thanked Goh for his contribution.
Star Foundation, the charitable arm of Star Media Group, aims to support and deliver sustainable, meaningful and impactful social initiatives.
Since its establishment in 2004, the foundation has channelled RM20.8mil to support more than 360 charities.
Currently, the foundation’s flagship initiatives are the Star Social Impact Grant (SSIG) and Medical Fund programme.
The objective of the Medical Fund programme is to help underprivileged children with chronic illnesses undergo life-changing surgeries.
Goh also said that Lions Club of Puchong will be organising the “Talent of Talents National Ten Elite Singer” charity dinner on March 4, at Dewan Wawasan, Menara PGRM, Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
“The dinner will be held in conjunction with the club’s 15th anniversary,” he he added.
Proceeds from the event will go towards the Lions Education Foundation, The Society of Interpreters for Deaf, Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) Yak Chee, House of Joy in Puchong and Impian OKU in Kuala Lumpur.
