Northport Reaches out to

Homeless Community in Port Klang

Northport (Malaysia) Bhd (Northport), a member of MMC Group, organised a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme in conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri by distributing personal care items, new clothes and food items to homeless community in Port Klang.

The programme was held in collaboration with Friends of Reach Out Klang, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) and a local branch of Reach Out Malaysia. The NGO is known for its noble humanitarian activities with volunteers of all races and religions to help those in need.

20 employees of Northport volunteered to distribute the items to about 60 homeless people from 10.30pm until midnight. The programme was an eye-opening experience for most of Northport volunteers. It provided them with an understanding of the struggles of this underprivileged community as well as the importance of sharing and providing assistance to them, especially during festive period.

This CSR programme was part of Northport’s initiatives to reach out to underprivileged community to reflect its commitment as a responsible corporate organisation. It is hoped that the programme will ease the struggles of the homeless people and will bring some cheers to them in celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

It was a night of teamwork for the Northport’s volunteers who participated in this event with remarkable sharing and meaningful caring for the underprivileged.
