Dufu and its employees’ chips in toward Be Home Penang’s monthly operational costs
On 28 October 2020, Dufu donated RM1,500 and mobility aids such as wheel chair and walker to Be Home, Penang. The visitation and donation also saw Dufu’s employees making a voluntarily contribution of RM3,400 to help support the 19 mental retardation residents in the home. Unlike in the previous years where our employees would usually engage with the under privileged with foods and drinks under our program “Mesra Bersama Dufu”, this year event was a subdued affair due to the rise in Covid-19 cases where we just handed in the gifts to the representative volunteer.
Be Home Penang, a non-profit organisation entirely relies on the support and assistance of benevolent people, caring social workers, service organizations, and companies in various fields to maintain the operation of the center. At present, Be Home Penang has adopted and cared for people with different symptoms, and looked after them for different needs, including physical therapy, life skills training, teaching them self-care and strengthening their adaptability.
The donation is also part of the Company’s corporate social responsibility programme. Previous beneficiaries include Penang Cheshire Home and Charis Home in Relau.
