P & G : RM160,000 raised and over 2,000 books donated

P&G Malaysia Celebrates 30th Anniversary by Giving Back to Underserved Communities

In January, P&G partnered with the National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA) and iM4U to provide 3,000 hygiene kits, filled with essential items to flood victims in Kedah, Perlis and Sarawak. The hygiene kits prepared were enough for 6,000 people for their daily use.

In April, P&G launched its ‘P&G Light Bulb’ project to build libraries for Orang Asli children, in partnership with The Budimas Charitable Foundation. A total of RM80,000 was raised via fund raising activities (which the company matched to contribute a total of RM160,000), with over 2,000 books donated. The P&G & Budimas Children’s Library was officially opened on 15 September 2017 in Kampung Orang Asli Tanjung Sepat to benefit the community’s 200 children.

In May, P&G also launched “Daripada Ibu, Kepada Ibu” (“From Mothers to Mothers”), a nationwide campaign that encourages Malaysians to help ease the burden of over 500 single mothers during the holy month of Ramadhan by making donations of non-perishable goods.
