On 17 June 2023, 12 associates from Tremco CPG Malaysia paid a visit to the Rumah Cahaya Kasih to spread joy and bring smiles to the children at the local orphanage.
Located in Kota Damansara, Malaysia, Rumah Cahaya Kasih is a welfare house that takes in and looks after Muslim girls whose parents or caregivers are unable to care for them. The orphanage is largely run by volunteers and is currently providing shelter, food, and basic needs to about 20 girls aged between 3 to 7 years old.
Armed with smiles, gifts, and a shared mission to make a positive difference, the Malaysian team arrived at the orphanage in the late morning and were immediately greeted by the sounds of enthusiastic children. To foster interaction between the guests and girls, a colouring competition was held. At the end, all the girls presented their artworks and the three girls with the best artwork received a special prize - a brand new school bag and accessories!
To further uplift the children's spirits, the team also arranged for a special lunch treat. The children were delighted to receive a McDonald's Happy Meal each. The sound of laughter could be heard throughout the afternoon as the team interacted and entertained the children, creating so many unforgettable memories together.
“Seeing the smiles on the faces of the little girls was a great testament to how important Corporate Social Responsibility is, especially to the vulnerable communities in our society,” said Winnie Yap, Tremco CPG's Human Resources Manager for Southeast Asia.
As the visit came to a close, the company also presented the orphanage with a new smart television together with essential supplies, including fresh groceries (to supplement their weekly grocery supply), and goodie bags filled with a selection of delicious snacks.
"I'm so proud of our team for volunteering their time and resources on a weekend to bring some joy to the lives of these young girls", said Jackson Kho, Area Director for Southeast Asia.
He continued, "With the expansion of Tremco CPG's business in the region, it was important for us to give back to the community. This visit was transformative, not only for the young residents, but also for us, and I hope that we will continue to explore more avenues to support and uplift communities in the future."
