Ringing in Christmas Early
17 - 18 December 2016
Some of our staff, led by partner Yong Hsian Siong, gathered to spread some Christmas cheer to children undergoing treatment at the Ronald McDonald House Charities, located in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital on 17 December. They were Santa Claus proxies for the day as they handed out goodie bags, household groceries and Pokemon stuffed toys to the children, which were all donated through two fundraising rounds in the office. Despite the downpour, the children were duly entertained by the clown and nobody left empty handed that afternoon. The following day, our staff Ganesan Torosamy and Kellie Yap also brought along some household goodies as a donation to Cornerstone Orphanage, in Semenyih. They spent a day of games and fun with the kids, and gave out Christmas presents based on the kids’ wishlist, which were privately donated by other parties.
Supporting awareness against gender-based violence in the White Ribbon Run
27 November 2016
For the second consecutive year in a row, the Firm was a partner and sponsor at the White Ribbon Run 2016, an annual awareness campaign that is organised by All Women’s Action Society (AWAM). This year’s run and walk took place on 27 November, at Desa Park City, where we sent 30 of our staff to run for a worthy cause. Despite the rain and wet roads, our runners braved the weather in the 3km and 7km categories and also took part in the planking competitions!
The White Ribbon signifies awareness against gender based violence, especially by men and boys, and we are proud to be associated with this campaign again. In 2015, besides the run, we also spoke at their public forum and radio interviews to provide a legal perspective on dealing with the thorny issue of gender violence.
