KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 15 (Bernama) -- Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Bhd (EXIM Bank) contributed RM5,000 cash to Pertubuhan Kebajikan Islam Peribadi Mulia (PKIPM), a charity home, at Kampung Sungai Kantan, Kajang, on Saturday.
EXIM Bank, in a statement, said electronic products such as washing machine and kitchen appliances worth RM5,000, a home improvement contract cost worth RM15,000 such as for paint jobs and new mats for the comfort of the home’s occupants, and books for the home’s library were also given.
The contribution, part of EXIM Bank’s corporate social responsibility community programme, was handed by its president and chief executive officer Norzilah Mohammed to PKIPM’s assistant administrator, Wajid Abdul Manan.
A total of 34 volunteers comprising EXIM Bank’s staff and the home’s orphans carried out home enhancement ‘gotong royong’ (coordinated activity in a team) works on that day, such as installing closets and mats.
