Kiwanis Club Of Meru Valley and OCBC Bank (M) Ipoh Empowering Students with Much Needed Digital Support

In Honouring their mission, Kiwanis Club of Meru Valley, Ipoh (KCMV) organised a collaboration with OCBC Bank (M), Ipoh in their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Project at SJK (C) Tanah Hitam, Chemor recently.

The school received some much-needed teaching aids worth RM 25,500.00, featuring eight brand new computers and five portable visualisers along with the timely upgrade to its poorly functioning classroom doors.

103 students can now have easy access to online materials through its new portable visualisers and can have a more conducive learning experience.

According to the school principal, Madam Lee Haw Kin, “the school desperately needed the learning aids as the education of the students was at stake”. “We needed the visualisers to better conduct lessons, and this contribution now takes us a giant step closer to ensuring the students are able to absorb materials in a quicker manner aided by the digital support,” she said.

Kiwanis Club of Meru Valley, Club President Mr Collin Chong said that the collaboration with OCBC Bank was a natural one as they have collaborated in community efforts over the past few years. This joint project is ultimately designed to motivate students to increase the efficiency of their digital learning.

“We are grateful to OCBC Bank through their Ipoh branch for their relentless support and commitment to assisting the community, this time by supporting this school through an upgrade and supply of essential equipment”. “We hope this has brought joy to the students and teachers

We are pleased to have done our part to help the Ipoh community whilst fulfilling our Kiwanis motto of ‘Serving Children of the World’,” he said.

OCBC Bank’s CSR efforts also revolve around children and education. Giving back to society has long been an important part of OCBC’s corporate culture. Speaking on behalf of OCBC Bank, its Ipoh branch Senior Manager Mr Chris Lu Koon Wing said the Bank continues to strive to be more involved in the localities in which it operates and to become even more engaged in the community, going beyond providing superior banking products and services to meeting the social needs of the people as well.

“The social and economic effect of the global pandemic has been hard for many and so we wanted to reach out to support our own community, particularly those who have been deeply affected during these past few months and now that students are back in school, we need to ensure they have an enriching environment to learn in.

“We are thankful to Kiwanis Club of Meru Valley for being part of this community building programme. We hope the students will benefit from the computers, visualisers and classroom upgrades and will always strive to learn in order to be the best that they can be,” he said.

He added that with 90 years of giving to communities, OCBC Bank looks forward to enabling individuals, SMEs and businesses to build a more sustainable future.
