Led by AGM Wong Suei Shye and Financial Controller Calvin Lim, 90 employees from JCY International Berhad had on 3rd December 2011 visited Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children Association Johor Bahru, Johor, and handed over a cash donation of five thousand Ringgit and of other groceries to the vice president of the association – S. Murugaiyah @ Jeevah.

 

JCY International Berhad also took the chance to have a dialogue with the association and understood the difficulty and challenges it faced.  They also visited the Home which is located in Taman Indah, Saleng and were welcomed by the founder and president of the association – V. Rajamanikam.  As a Home of inclusiveness, the Home houses 215 physical or mental handicapped children and adults, which include all races, religious and ages.  The representative-in-charge of the Home R. Rajasegar pointed out: “We had lost contact with some of the parents who delivered their child here; apart from having to look after their needs of logistic, shielding, foods and clothes, we also take care of their medical need.” The Home spent around 90,000 Ringgit a month on its recurring expenditure.

 

Wong Suei Shye, who is also the Chairman of Corporate Social Responsibility Committee of JCY, was touched by the story, expressed: “As a leader, I knew the difficulty of handling hundreds of workers.  But as I get to know more about the association on its adoption of more than 200 children hindered with flaws, it gained my respect to the Home, workers and volunteers here.  Their selfless contribution to make sure a warm shelter for the children made me feel like ‘love is in the air’.”

 

On top of recruiting a clown and a pair of lion dance for the entertainment of the children, JCY also arranged its foreign workers for two traditional performance and dances and one magic show.  At the same time, children from the Home also performed a dance.  Laughter and joys were all over the places.

 

Wong Sui Shye said after the event: “It perfectly filled our objective for the trip, not only our employees would get to know better on the meaning of Corporate Social Responsibility, we also assisted the Home financially and in substance, moreover, we also brought joys to the children.”
