As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme, Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) gave a treat to underprivileged children recently.
According to the Chief Operations Officer of MAPS, Mohd Farid Abdul Aziz, this CSR programme was synonymous with MAPS since its grand opening in June 2017. The event, “Your Colourful Holidays” was held during the recent mid-term school holidays.
A total of 500 children from 12 orphanages, schools and kindergartens around the state were invited to join the programme held at MAPS on Saturday, March 17. The invitation was also extended to children from the Paediatric Ward of the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital and 15 students from Sekolah Semangat Maju, Ipoh.
The Principal of Sekolah Semangat Maju, Ipoh, Annie Margaret was grateful that her students were given the opportunity to participate in the programme sponsored by MAPS.
“It gives our students the chance to socialise and at the same time help raise public awareness about children with special needs,” she said.
