Volvo Malaysia Continues Giving Back to the Society
SHAH ALAM, 09 January, 2017 - Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the distributor for Volvo Trucks,
Renault Trucks, Volvo Buses and Volvo Construction Equipment once again opened its doors to
underprivileged children at their headquarters in Shah Alam. This annual charity event is part of
Volvo Malaysia’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative in giving back to the society and
this year, Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd made a contribution of RM10,000 to two underprivileged
Jagaan Cahaya Kasih Bestari and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Seribu Harapan were presented
with a cheque worth RM5,000 each to assist them with their basic daily needs. Volvo Malaysia
practices tremendous care in selecting only grassroots-built and genuine non-profit organisations
that largely rely on contribution from society that would benefit from their annual charity event.
Mats Nilsson, Managing Director of Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd, “It is the time of the year and it is a
season of giving. We are very happy to have children from both houses and our families here in
our headquarters; creating such lively and fun atmosphere. This is the second year of our annual
charity event and we hope to continue giving back to the society more often moving on.”
Laughters broke through the air early morning at the renowned Swedish brand’s compound as
more than 150 guests enjoyed themselves to the fun activities specially arranged by Volvo
Malaysia. Underprivileged children from Jagaan Cahaya Kasih Bestari and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-
Kanak Seribu Harapan together with Volvo’s staff and their families were entertained with various
mini games and lucky draws.
Aside from these activities, children and families were also treated to an interactive safety session
of Volvo Truck’s global safety campaign ‘Stop, Look, Wave’. This campaign aims to raise children’s
awareness on the importance of identifying blind spots and to practice safe behaviours in traffic
especially when in the presence of large trucks. Volvo Trucks also recently announced their
partnership with KidZania Kuala Lumpur on this initiative via the KidZania Go! - a KidZania mobile
school outreach programme.
In November 2015, Volvo Malaysia held its 9th Volvo Golf World Challenge and partnered National
Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) for its annual charity drive which saw RM 24,000 raised from
sales of Volvo Trucks and Titleist merchandise as well as the purchase of special drawings painted
by the talented kids from NASOM.
