In conjunction with the year-end school holidays, Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) recently surprised 500 children from eight charity homes in Perak with the special privilege to experience the theme park upon its opening in mid-2016.
Under the #MAPSweCare corporate social responsibility initiative, the invitations by MAPS is part of the company’s continuous efforts to bring joy to the children and reach out to the community.
Delighted to be part of the list of homes is Rumah Anak-anak Yatim Yayasan Amanah An-Nur Maisarah in Chemor, Perak. During MAPS’ recent visit to the home, Dr Fazillah binti Nordin, the Founder, enthused, “The children are overjoyed by the special invitation to visit MAPS, especially, when our Home is just nearby the Park.”
Meanwhile, Annie Magaret, the headmistress of Sekolah Semangat Maju (Terencat Akal), Ipoh said, “We are very grateful for having corporate organisations such as MAPS to include our children in their community engagements. There is nothing better than seeing the joy in their faces and I believe that upon completion of the theme park, the children will have a great experience! I truly thank MAPS for the kind gesture.”
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of MAPS, Darren McLean explained, “Through our #MAPSweCare programme, we hope to continue touching the hearts of the people and spread some joy within the community in our unique ways. We welcome other corporate organisations to join us in making a difference within the community and inspire the underprivileged to Live Their Dreams.”
The #MAPSweCare programme has collaborated with various organisations for community outreach initiatives. Earlier this year, MAPS together with DYMM Raja Permaisuri Perak Tuanku Zara Salim, visited the Paediatric Ward of Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun, Ipoh during the holy month of Ramadan. In the same month, MAPS also shared the festive joy with the underprivileged students at Sekolah Semangat Maju, a special school managed by the Perak Association for the Intellectually Disabled (PAFID) dedicated to children with slow learning ability.
The theme park will launch its tickets by January 2016. Visit www.mapsperak.com for the latest updates.
