As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Ericsson Malaysia has contributed RM10,000 to Rumah Nur Salam a non-profit centre that is dedicated to the caring and improving the quality of lives of underprivileged children living in the Chow Kit areas. The contribution was made at the prize giving ceremony of the DiGi-Ericsson Walk-A-Hunt event in Cyberjaya on June 30, 2007.
President and Country Manager of Ericsson Malaysia, Krishna Kumar presented the cheque to Raja Azizan Raja Abdul Latiff, Executive Director of Rumah Nur Salam.
“Ericsson has been supporting Rumah Nur Salam since its inception by helping them to set-up a computer and broadband activity room at the centre. The effort is in line with Ericsson’s vision to make communication available for all, including the less fortunate children. Today, we are pleased to further extend our support for the centre, in conjunction with the DiGi-Ericsson Walk-A-Hunt event,” says Krishna.
“We are very happy to receive Ericsson’s support in our pursuit to provide these children with equal opportunities and the possibilities to realise their potentials for a better future. We hope Ericsson’s contribution will inspire more private companies, including individuals to support non-profit charitable projects for the benefits of our society and future generation,” adds Raja Azizan.
About 30 children from Rumah Nur Salam were present at the event. They were earlier taken on an educational trip sponsored by Ericsson, to visit significant landmarks in Putrajaya, including the Prime Minister’s Office, Seri Perdana, Putra Mosque and Taman Warisan Pertanian.
