KUALA LUMPUR, 23 December 2020 - A total of 150 recipients from three different homes for financially disadvantaged children, orphans and old folk were selected to receive gifts and essentials from UCSI Group as part of its effort in giving back to the community.
The “Gifts of Love and Care” campaign selected three welfare homes - Rumah Sayangan, Bodhi Homecare and Agathians Shelter located in Cheras and Petaling Jaya.
UCSI conducted the month-long campaign at Block G, UCSI University Kuala Lumpur campus where the staff and students picked, bought and delivered the gifts at the designated counter.
UCSI’s event head, Ts Lucas Lim said that it is vital to advocate to people that Christmas is not just about opening gifts and presents but it is also about being kind to others as well.
“We all lead busy lives, but a pocketful of spare change or a few hours of our time can make a difference to others. We are also proud to have Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur sponsoring ten cartons of Julie’s biscuits and ten cartons of lemon sparkling drinks.
This campaign shows how an act of kindness can put a smile on the faces of less fortunate people,” he added.
“On behalf of UCSI Group and Lions Club, I would like to send my best wishes and Christmas goodwill to all recipients,” he said.
This “Gifts of Love and Care” campaign was also in accordance with the Goal 1 and Goal 11 of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) which aim to end poverty in all its forms everywhere and make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
