KUALA LUMPUR: A primary school in Indonesia recently destroyed by the Yogyakarta quake will begin reconstruction this month with donations received through the CIMB-Niaga Jogja Relief Fund. 

The fund collected RM550,000, with the CIMB Group and Bumiputra-Commerce Holdings and Commerce Internatio- 

nal Group each contributing RM100,000. 

The rest came from CIMB Group’s promise to match one-for-one every ringgit donated by the public. 

CIMB group chief executive Datuk Nazir Razak said: “We chose to restore the school to ensure the children are not deprived of education.”  

It is expected that the new two-storey Glagah Public Elementary School will be completed by the end of the year and will benefit some 483 pupils.
