WHILE the world is still battling the Covid-19 pandemic, the Heal the World Foundation continues to live up to its mission to make the world a better place – a world where people from all walks of life love and care for one another by holding campaigns, spreading awareness, and donating to various causes that need the urgent attention.
On its latest campaign to bring hope for the new year, Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, through the foundation, donated over 300 hampers to some 50 old folks homes in Seri Kembangan, Subang, Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya, Ampang, Rawang and Puchong on Dec 31 last month.
The hampers were prepared and donated by varsity staff who understand the importance of taking part in events that uplift others. They, however, ensured that Covid-19 standard operating procedures were followed throughout the visit to the homes.
The Heal the World Foundation has planned a series of donations to orphanages, old folks homes, frontliners and different NGO’s for the entire year, it said in a press release.
The “Heal the World Global Campaign” spearheaded by Limkokwing founding president Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing made millions of ringgit worth of donations in Malaysia and Africa to help alleviate challenges brought on by the pandemic.
Last month, the foundation shone the spotlight on frontliners in Botswana who braved the pandemic to save lives.
They were celebrated during the lighting of a four-story Christmas tree lighting – the biggest in the country, in addition to donations to various charities. Limkokwing Lesotho and Eswatini also held events to spread the holiday cheer.
In April last year, Lim donated masks and bottled water worth of RM60,000 to support front liners in Malaysia who are currently serving the nation during the Covid-19 outbreak.
“We want to contribute in whatever way possible to lessen the impact of the pandemic and to show our appreciation to our brave front liners for their sacrifice, dedication and contribution during Malaysia’s hour of need.
“It is in times like these that we really need to step up and be united, put aside our differences, and work together in our collective fight against Covid-19, ” he said.
