Kuala Lumpur, 28 November 2018 – The Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA), organiser of the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018 (KLIMS’18), took the opportunity to incorporate a Corporate Social Responsibility activity at the motor show.
MAA hosted a Charity Visit Day for the under privilege children from 10 charitable homes such as Rumah Charis, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Amal Al-Ummah, Trinity Community Children Home, Shelter Home for Children, Persatuan Kebajikan Rumah Jalinan Kasih Anak-Anak Yatim Miskin Selangor, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Agathians Malaysia, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Insan Istimewa Kuala Lumpur, Good Samaritan Home, Persatuan Kebajikan Islam Peribadi Mulia and Pusat Jagaan Telaga Kasih Nur Muhammad.
A total of 150 children and their guardians arrived at Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) for a tour of the 9th presentation of KLIMS. For many of the children, this is their first time visiting a motor show. The children were thrilled with vehicle displays and interactive games at the exhibitors’ booths. They were also entertained with the clown and magic shows at KLIMS’18.
Datuk Aishah Ahmad, President of the MAA commented that “MAA is glad that we have the opportunity to organise a fun day for the children at KLIMS’18, and at the same time, we are hoping to inspire them to join the automotive industry as the future generation of leaders. I would also like to extend our deepest appreciation to the management of Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) for joining MAA in this CSR drive by hosting the lunch for the children and their guardians.”
The charity day tour of KLIMS’18 concluded with a sumptuous lunch hosted by the MITEC. During the luncheon, Datuk Aishah Ahmad also presented a RM5,000 cheque donation to each of the homes. The charity day for the children ended on a high note with a goodie bag filled with stationeries, toys and gifts for each of them.
