LITRAK Group Chinese New Year Charity Event At Rumah Charis
31 Jan 2011
IN the midst of festive season, there are others who are less fortunate. As a loving community, these people should not be forgotten and it is our duty to bring the festive season happiness to them.
Justlike previous years, Lingkaran Trans Kota Sdn Bhd (LITRAK) and Sistem Penyuraian Trafik KL Barat Sdn Bhd, the highway concessionaire of Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong and SPRINT Highway organized a Chinese New Year charity program which is part of our continuous community service.
Thisyear, some 20 senior citizens from a privately run charity home from Rumah Charis was chosen as the beneficiary for the charity event hosted by LITRAK Group. It is hoped that this sincere move will help the recipients to experience the ongoing joy of Chinese New Year and this continuous community service by LITRAK Group will be an ongoing exercise by the concessionaire towards the society.
Present as the guest of honor was Malaysian Highway Authority Director General Y.Bhg. Dato’ Ir Hj Ismail Md Salleh. Also present, LITRAK’s Chief Executive Officer, Sazally Saidi.
“The general public only saw the tolled highways as money collectors when in actual fact there were hundreds of CSR being undertaken by the concessions. This is what we call “giving it back” to the community. It has to look beyond profits and look at nation-building and CSR is one way of doing so to achieve the objective of 1Malaysia”, Ismail commented.
At the event, LITRAK Group brought to cheer to the senior citizens with a presentation of ‘ang pow’, goody bags and hampers to the home followed by a sumptuous lunch.
