KUCHING: Naim Group of Companies, through its charitable trust fund, Tabung Amanah Naim, has contributed RM50,000 to the Bintulu Muslim Charitable Trust Board (Lakib).
The company handed over its contribution during a ceremony at Masjid Jepak at the central Sarawak industrial town recently.
Naim’s senior general manager, Charles Bateman, handed over the mock cheque to state Assistant Tourism Minister Datuk Talib Zulpilip, who is an assemblyman of the area.
“Naim has a strong outreach programme to connect with less fortunate members of the community, trying to assist them in ways we can. We strongly believe in giving back to the society. This is beyond corporate social responsibility – this is from our hearts, driven by a passion to make a difference in people’s lives,” Bateman said at the ceremony.
“We hope that our contribution would be able to facilitate Lakib’s noble efforts in assisting the needy such as widows, orphans and those living in poverty, and we look forward to a continuation of such efforts in time to come,” he added.
Also present at the ceremony was Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem. Naim is one of the prime movers in real estate development in
Bintulu, where it is building the Paragon, which includes office towers, condominiums and a shopping mall.
