Sunway has reached out to more than 200,000 lives in Malaysia when the outbreak affected the majority in the country last year. Sunway centred the efforts on three key pillars: education, healthcare, and community enrichment.
The #SunwayforGood campaign actively assisted the bottom 40 percent (B40) income-group and provided vouchers worth RM50 to more than 2,000 beneficiaries. Vouchers worth RM100 were also given to 736 students and to purchase groceries and school items.
The Group also used its Sunway Resort Hotel trucks to transport 250 kgs of groceries from the Food Aid Foundation to Persatuan Insaf Murni in Kajang helping 20 families with HIV.
The #SunwayforGood Fund was also set up in collaboration with the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation to gather donations from all Sunway employees and help the ones affected by the outbreak. To complement the efforts, Sunway produced a video highlighting the Group’s progress and achievement of the programme.
Sunway Group’s Deputy Executive Chairman Razman M. Hashim, who led the #SunwayforGood initiatives mentioned that the programme changed the mindset of Sunway from the art of living to the heart of giving.
Furthermore, Sunway surpassed the target of collecting 40,000 kgs of food through the #SunwayforGood Food Bank Programme. The collection reached more than 53,000 kilogrammes as of the end of December 2020.
“We have the power to make a difference and be the light to someone’s life. Through our initiatives, we have impacted more than 200,000 lives and contributed more than RM34 million to aid those in need. We aspire to bring hope to the underserved communities,” Razman shared on uplifting the B40.
“Sunway acknowledges that it is not the government’s responsibility alone to realise the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It requires shared commitments and efforts to help them,” said Sunway Group Founder and Chairman Jeffrey Cheah.
