In conjunction with its back-to-school programme, the Ipoh City Council (MBI) stepped forward to offer help and reduce the burden of its staff members.
MBI Secretary, Ahmad Munir Ishak said through the continuous MBI Cares programme, his party collaborated with Kedai Canggih Sutera Sdn.Bhd this time to provide aid for MBI staff members in the B40 group from various departments.
“We have identified a total of 100 individuals who will receive a set of school uniforms with an allocation of RM130 per person and the overall total involved RM13,000.
“This time, we focus on primary school students and for the upcoming contribution, we will probably focus on secondary school students,” he said after the presentation ceremony of the back-to-school aid for children of MBI staff members today at Kedai Canggih Sutera Sdn.Bhd.
Present were Managing Director of Canggih Sutera Sdn Bhd, Rozamir Zulkifli; MBI Senior Director of Services, Rohayah Abd Kadir and MBI Director of Community Services, Normala binti Latiff.
Rozamir Zulkifli expressed gratitude to MBI, especially Mayor Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin @Md Daud, for the collaboration to aid the needy.
“Such programmes provide opportunities for the underprivileged families to purchase quality school uniforms for the children.
“Products of Canggih Sutera are made up of high quality materials with affordable prices in the pandemic.
“We also want to help the underprivileged by offering a discount of 10% till 15% according to the packages provided. This shop operates everyday from 9am till 9pm,” Rozamir explained.
The MBI Cares programme has begun since the implementation of Movement Control Order. Over RM1 million has been spent to help reduce the burden of residents, traders, MBI staff members and former MBI staff members impacted by the pandemic.
MBI together with strategic partners such as Econsave supermarket and other sponsors provide contributions via the MBI Cares programme.
