Malaysia Airlines Contribute School Kits For Rumah Anak Yatim Taman Baiduri

Subang (4 January 2012) : Twenty five children from Rumah Anak Yatim Taman Baiduri, recently received school kits from Malaysia Airlines to start their 2012 academic year.

A team of Malaysia Airlines staff from various divisions took time from their busy schedules to be at the modest handing over event and mingle to get to know the orphans.

The contribution consisting of school necessities such as uniforms, bags and shoes were handed to Mohd Shukry Md Latar, also a Malaysia Airlines staff who oversees the day-to-day running of the orphanage.

"Most of the children go to SK Dengkil and Cyberjaya and some here will be going to school for the first time. They are looking forward to starting a new year and we hope this contribution will give them a head start in school," said Mohd Shukry Md Latar.

Rumah Anak Yatim Taman Baiduri located in Dengkil, Sepang, Selangor provides shelter and care for underprivileged children aged 8 to 15 years old. The orphanage operates on voluntary basis and has been headed by Mohd Shukry since 2009.

Under the Government-Link-Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme, the national carrier raises funds to aid organizations and charitable trusts as well as adopting needy schools throughout Malaysia.

  • Project Pintar which is aimed at promoting education as a way to improve the lives of underprivileged children and;
  • Change for Charity which is a fund-raising exercise for humanitarian funds in collaboration with MERCY Malaysia;
  • Collaboration with Make-A-Wish charity organisation on a fund raising initiative
  • Voluntary Carbon Offset Scheme (VCOS) where passengers flying on Malaysia Airlines may pledge a contribution towards reducing the effects of carbon dioxide in the environment.
