As part of Mayland Group Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the Mayland Group is collaborating with the Malaysian Red Crescent Society Kuala Lumpur (MRC KL) for a Flood Relief and Blood Donation Drive at Hartamas Shopping Center, Kuala Lumpur.
The 6 weeks’ campaign held from 8 January 2022 to 17 February 2022 aims to help expedite the recovery process of those affected by the recent flood devastation in various parts of the country.
Mayland Group through its retail division is offering space at Hartamas Shopping Center to MRC KL as collection centre for contributions by caring members of the public. There is a designated shoplot on the plaza ground floor for shoppers to drop off their contributions as well as a kiosk located outside the mall on the plaza floor to facilitate drive-thru donations.
This joint initiative with MRC KL will enable the organisation to further mobilise aid through its vast network of manning resources to reach out to various areas where immediate help is needed.
The collaboration event was officiated by the Malaysian Red Crescent Society National Chairman, HRH Dato’ Seri DiRaja Tan Sri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz together with Mayland Group Managing Director Dato’ Kevin Woo at Hartamas Shopping Center on 15 January 2022.
Dato’ Kevin Woo said, “Mayland’s vision has always been to contribute to the well-being of the community as seen in the various community projects undertaken by our retail and hotel divisions. This vision encapsulates our longstanding corporate credo ‘Builder of a Better Tomorrow‘. We hope through this joint initiative with the Malaysian Red Crescent Society, the public will view Hartamas Shopping Centre as not just a retail mall but also a mall with a heart for the community.”
HRH Dato’ Seri DiRaja Tan Sri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz encourages contributions and donations from the public to assist the less fortunate in our communities.
The launch event was witnessed by 30 attendees from Mayland Group and Malaysian Red Crescent Society with wearing of face masks in line with the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by the Government.
Present at the launch event were the Malaysian Red Crescent Society National Vice Chairman and Kuala Lumpur Chairman, Dato’ Sri Suhaimi Bin Haji Yacob and Secretary General, Tuan Haji Hakim Bin Haji Hamzah including Mayland Retail Malls Director, Ms. Pel Loh.
