IN REACHING out to the less fortunate, Fraser & Neave Holdings Bhd (F&N) continued its commitment of spreading joy during Chinese New Year by visiting 10 homes across Malaysia.

The company’s efforts brought smiles to 509 people comprising orphans, disabled children and senior citizens.

The homes visited were The Salvation Army Penang Children’s Care, Anning Children’s Home, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Orang Tua Cacat Dan Kurang Upaya Taman Connaught, Persatuan Kebajikan Vinashini, Persatuan Kebajikan Prihatin Kuan Yin Johor Bahru, Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Terencat Akal, Joy Garden Karak – House of Joy, Down Syndrome Centre Lions Club Kota Bahru House, Community Social Support Centre and Holy Family Residence for Senior Citizens.

“In every market in which we operate, we engage in both long and short-term programmes anchored on four themes – strengthening vulnerable groups, promoting environmental consciousness, spreading festive cheer, and promoting sports and active lifestyles aimed at fostering greater social equity,” said Tan.

“Festive seasons are a great opportunity for us to connect with the local community.
