The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

Hav­ing col­lab­o­rated with the NCSM for over 10 years, Black­mores funded the paint and tools for the makeover project. The NCSM build­ing now wears a new coat of bright yel­low.

Ac­cord­ing to NCSM pres­i­dent and med­i­cal di­rec­tor Dr Saun­thari So­ma­sun­daram, the colour “stands for friend­ship, hap­pi­ness and en­ergy” and rep­re­sents the longterm re­la­tion­ship be­tween NCSM and Black­mores.

“For a decade, we have main­tained a great part­ner­ship (with NCSM), start­ing with the pro­duc­tion of ‘What Book of Can­cer’, an in­for­ma­tive book about can­cer for chil­dren. This was fol­lowed by the Black­mores Syd­ney Run­ning Fes­ti­val, as well as the pro­duc­tion of the said book in Chi­nese and Ba­hasa Malaysia,” said Black­mores Malaysia coun­try man­ager Eddy Ong. staff across the coun­try,” added Ong. He also com­mented that this en­deav­our meant a lot to the team. “We hope that with a fresh ‘face’, this lead­ing can­cer or­gan­i­sa­tion can con­tinue their ef­fort in min­imis­ing the threat of can­cer.”

NCSM pro­vides can­cer and health screen­ings for the pub­lic, well­ness ac­tiv­i­ties for can­cer pa­tients and sur­vivors, as well as a tem­po­rary home for child can­cer pa­tients. Apart from the build­ing makeover, Black­mores con­trib­uted RM100,000 to aid the over­all costs in main­tain­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion and the build­ing.
