Johor Sultan's foundation to provide glasses to 2,500 needy students in collaboration with optical company

JOHOR BARU: Some 2,500 school students across Johor will soon get free spectacles worth RM500,000 thanks to the Sultan Ibrahim of Johor Foundation (SIJF).

In a statement posted to Sultan Ibrahim’s official Facebook page on Monday (Feb 22), the foundation said it was collaborating with Season Optical to provide the spectacles.

Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, who welcomed the kind gesture by Season Optical, hopes other companies would similarly come forward with aid for those in need.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic hitting all strata of society since last year, any form of aid and cooperation is most welcome.

“I would like to thank Season Optical for coming forward to collaborate with my foundation to help the rakyat in their own special way, ” His Majesty added.

A special designated truck will visit all districts in the state to check the eyes of students in need with the cooperation of their respective schools.

Sultan Ibrahim, who received a delegation from SIJF and Season Optical at Istana Flintstones in Mersing, later checked out the truck and also took the opportunity to have his eyes examined by the company’s staff.

Also present were SIJF board of trustees member Datuk Avinderjit Singh, SIJF chief executive officer Fadhly Suffian Laili and Season Optical chief executive officer Calvin Chung.

His Majesty also granted an audience to Eco-Shop Marketing managing director Datuk Seri Lee Kar Whatt and Lionmas Furnishings executive director Gan Cheng Swee, who are among the regular contributors to SIJF.
