KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 -- The Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM) and its 16 member companies continue to spread love and care by contributing donation-in-kind to four children’s homes in the Klang Valley today.
In a statement, LIAM said it has reached out to 150 children aged from two to 17 years from Persatuan Kebajikan Rumah Jalinan Kasih Anak-anak Yatim Miskin, Cheras; Rumah Anak-anak Yatim Raudhatul Al Faeez, Gombak; Lighthouse Children Welfare Home Association, Bangsar; and Precious Children Home/Mikhalai School of Destiny, Segambut.
The homes received RM20,000 worth of household items such as foodstuff, groceries, toiletries, stationeries, face masks, hand sanitisers, and personal care and hygiene items.
“Even though there were no Hari Raya sumptuous meals prepared this time around, the children and their caretakers will be presented with special meals through food delivery to their homes.
"We hope our small gesture will come a long way in bringing smiles to their faces as the children ultimately need constant care and love without boundary,” said LIAM president Loh Guat Lan.
The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic which affected many countries globally including Malaysia has caused the annual tradition of LIAM Hari Raya Gathering with Children to be cancelled indefinitely.
“We acknowledge the hardship and struggles faced by the children’s homes particularly during this challenging time and we want to play our part as a responsible corporate citizen through this initiative to ensure the welfare of the needy is taken care of,” she added.
