KUALA LUMPUR: About 200 guests attended the 30th anniversary dinner of Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD), the philanthropic arm of the multinational group.
It was held at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in Bukit Kiara here recently.
Among the guests, who included donors and beneficiaries, were YSD's chairman Tun Musa Hitam, co-founder Tunku Tan Sri Ahmad Tunku Yahaya, Sime Darby Group interim chairman Tan Sri Samsudin Osman, and its president and chief executive officer, Datuk Mohd Bakke Salleh.
The event saw Musa presenting Tunku Ahmad with a batik painting in honour of the latter's dedication and contribution towards the development of YSD.
The painting depicted the foundation's five pillars -- education; community development; youth, sports and recreation; arts and culture; and conservation of the environment and protection of the ecosystems.
Samsudin presented awards to four organisations for creating awareness and for the causes they championed.
Borneo Rhino Alliance, Yayasan Chow Kit, Akademi Seni Budaya dan Warisan Kebangsaan (Aswara) and the Malay Cricket Association of Malaysia each received a painted leaf-motif glass and a RM5,000 for their projects.
Since its inception on June 9, 1982, YSD has awarded scholarships worth RM184 million to more than 1,800 students both in and outside Malaysia.
