Shell Malaysia brings joy to children
Oct 03, 2014
CYBERJAYA – 20 volunteers from Shell Malaysia's Contracting & Procurement (CP) team in Cyberjaya and Kuala Lumpur recently brought cheer and learnings to more than 40 children of an orphanage located in Klang and Subang during an outing to Petaling Jaya as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative.
The Home is a registered non-profit charitable home for orphans and abandoned children which began in 1991. It provides food, shelter, clothing, education, tender care and discipline to these kids.
At the event, the volunteers introduced games to the children, aged 6 to 17, that are aimed at building knowledge on negotiation, creative thinking and leadership; essential elements needed to be a CP professional. Thereafter, the children were treated to mouthwatering A&W food and drinks. They were overjoyed with the edutainment games and meal with the volunteers, which allowed them to socialise and learn at the same time. Towards the end, the volunteers handed over necessities such as electrical goods, bedding and other items made known to them by the Home.
Brian Puang, CP Support Manager said "This is our first social activity which uses an education theme related to our core skills. It was indeed a privilege to share some of our CP skills with children through the games and edutainment. The main aspiration is for the children to build awareness of CP related skills in their own unique ways while inspiring them to become CP professionals in the future. We hope this CSR effort is also a catalyst for similar forms of volunteerism in other parts of Shell worldwide and other large corporations out there"
Thanking Shell Malaysia for giving the children a wonderful day to cherish, David Janssen the Director of Public Relations & Fundraising of the Home who accompanied the children said "Touching and impacting lives has always been our motto. We are happy that Shell Malaysia has given the children something they can learn and treasure with them as they grow into being successful person in their lives with the fun learning experiences"
The Shell CP volunteers have pledged that they will continue to contribute to the society and explore similar form of volunteerism with fund raising opportunities.
Similarly Shell has a program called ‘We Care, We Share’ that was launched in 1998 as a community based smart-partnership program, aimed at helping local communities help themselves but with a hand from Shell staff and families. While the company provides small grants and loads of encouragement, the real contribution lies in the time and energy that staff including contractors working for Shell, their family members, retirees and members of the community themselves willingly give, in support of a variety of causes under the banner of ‘We Care, We Share’.
It signifies Shell’s commitment to make both small and giant steps towards the creation of a better and sustainable society.
