MFL and sponsor bring BiG joy to parents and students

PETALING JAYA: Help came in a big way for 150 students from three schools, thanks to a collaboration between the Malaysian Football League (MFL) and their official sponsor.

As part of MFL’s Back to School programme, the students from SK Sri Sinar, SK Segambut Makmur, and SK Segambut, received RM200 worth of AEON BiG vouchers for the purchase of school supplies at their Kepong hypermarket.

Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh shared her appreciation for the efforts to organise the programme while hoping that more parties, especially corporate companies, would step forward to help those who are less fortunate.

“Thank you to MFL and sponsor for the contributions (a total of RM30,000) that will help ease the burden faced by parents as they prepare their children for the 2024 school year,” said Hannah.

Meanwhile, MFL president Datuk Ab Ghani Hassan said this was the first time they had carried out such a programme as part of the body’s effort to engage with the local community.

“This is a special programme for MFL where we get to give back to the community. Surely the programme sends a positive message and allows us to fulfil our social responsibilities,” said Ab Ghani.

AEON BiG managing director Sheikh Faroukh Sheikh Mohamed added that the programme had given them the opportunity to support students to success.

“This programme will go on until March 15 which is when the school term starts. It can help ease the burden of parents in preparing school essentials for their children.”
