Mah Sing Foundation raises RM4.6 million for charity
PETALING JAYA: The Mah Sing Foundation has raised RM4.62 million to promote educational and medical support this year for the less-privileged.
The foundation, which was established by the property development group in 2005, recently organised a charity dinner themed “Better Lives Together” in Kuala Lumpur.
At the event, its chairman Datuk Syed Norulzaman Syed Kamarulzaman said since its inception, the foundation had contributed more than RM10 million to charities and NGOs.
Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Tan Sri Noh Omar and his wife Puan Sri Nooraisha Fariza Abu Bakar, Mah Sing Group chairman Gen (Rtd) Tan Sri Yaacob Mat Zin and Mah Sing Group managing director Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum were among those present.
At the ceremony, top donors presented mock cheques to the foundation totalling RM1.79 million which were then presented to 15 beneficiaries.
In his speech, Noh praised Mah Sing for championing initiatives for the betterment of society with its charity arm, Mah Sing Foundation, saying it has impacted the lives of countless people both in Malaysia and across our borders.
“While they have done many charitable acts, I believe their biggest contribution is providing affordable housing,” he said.
Among the beneficiaries were the Tunku Laksamana Johor
