KUCHING: MagnumCares continues to spread joy to the needy with its annual Ang Pau Distribution programme, which benefitted some 19,000 senior citizens and orphans nationwide. 

MagnumCares has shown its continuous effort in helping and providing assistance and aid throughout the years. 

Starting from the beginning of this year, the team has provided assistance to 230 welfare homes nationwide and will be receiving RM730,000 worth of ang pau, sponsorship support as well as festive gifts. 

Magnum’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) teams also shifted the conventional way of home-by-home visit by sending bulk necessities items to the homes. 

“We can never imagine the situation or the circumstances of the needy until we go on the ground and put ourselves in others’ shoes to consider for help. We are committed to help our fellow Malaysians in times of need,” said Magnum’s group chief commercial officer, Datuk Chan Chee Fai.

Thus, he said, apart from contributions such as ang pau and home necessities, MagnumCares has also undertaken home enhancements programme for selected homes.

“3Rs jobs will be carried out which are repairing, refurnishing and replacing faulty essential items to ensure the residents get to stay in a comfortable, safe and sustainable environment throughout the year,” he added.

The programmes initiated named ‘Home Enhancement Programme’ are aimed to improve the living conditions of selected welfare homes across the country to ensure the residents are living in a safe and comfortable environment. 

Previously, Magnum has built a therapy room for disabled children and learning areas to benefit the residents of the welfare homes.

“’For You, With You’ has always been MagnumCares’ mission. Together we can champion the communities and with great empathy, acceptance and love. 

“We are hoping for a meaningful and moderate celebration with our fellow Malaysians and will continue to empower the society with more sustainable and significant CSR programmes,” Chan remarked.
