Ikhasas staff come bearing gifts of food, money, love


KAJANG: Twenty employees of Ikhasas Sdn Bhd recently visited Persatuan Rumah Amal Murni Kajang, an old folk's home in Jalan Bukit, Kajang, with over RM6,000 worth of gifts of food and money.

The visit was under the company's corporate social responsibility programme, which encouraged employee participation in community work.

Prior to the visit, the company held a donation drive that involved its subsidiaries Shaftsbury Capital Sdn Bhd, Longbow Technologies Sdn Bhd, Solar District Cooling Sdn Bhd and Styliston Sdn Bhd. The donation drive collected money and items worth about RM3,000.

Ikhasas managing director Tan Chee Kian said: "The visit is a company effort to instill in our employees love for the marginalised, such as the old folk of Persatuan Rumah Amal Murni Kajang

Recently, Ikhasas sponsored a Christmas outing and presents for the children of Rumah Keluarga Kami and Hua Ming Autism Society through Shaftsbury Capital, at the Shaftsbury Square Christmas Carnival in Cyberjaya.

Fifty children received Christmas presents sponsored by the company and enjoyed games and activities such as face painting, sand art and balloon sculpting.

Up next is the Breast Cancer Awareness Programme at Shaftsbury Square on Jan 30 and 31.

The two-day event is organised by Shaftsbury Capital and National Cancer Council (Makna)to create greater awareness of cancer and the importance of early detection, as well as to disseminate information on how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Free clinical breast examinations are also on the programme, which is open to all men and women except pregnant or breast-feeding mothers.

Makna will offer mammogram screenings at RM150 each for women aged 40 and above.

An exhibition on breast cancer will be showing over the two days.

Ikhasas Sdn Bhd employees show they care by spending time with those marginalised or ignored by society.
