KOTA BELUD: A total of 200 residents of Kampung Mukim Wariu in the Kadamaian State Assembly constituency received donations of eyeglasses and food baskets through the Pernas Prihatin Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, an agency under the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives.


Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Datuk Ewon Benedick said that the donation of eyeglasses and free eye examinations is a joint initiative with Focus Point, the largest optical retail chain in Malaysia.


He hopes that the donation will bring joy to the recipients in conjunction with the Christmas and New Year celebrations, which are celebrated by various ethnic groups and religions in this area.


"I also appreciate the efforts and high commitment of Pernas and Focus Point for their willingness to come from the city to rural areas just to provide services to the village community.


"I hope that more government agencies, corporate companies, and multinational corporations will visit rural areas to carry out their respective CSR programmes and help people in need like this," he said.


He made these remarks when approached by reporters after officiating the Pernas Prihatin CSR Program at the Kg. Talungan Open Hall, here, today.


Also present were Pernas Chief Operating Officer Tengku Mohamed Fadhli Tengku Hamzah, Optician and Branch Manager of Focus Point Teng Yee Jiun, and local leaders.


Ewon, who is also the Kadamaian State Assemblyman (Adun), said that this CSR programme aims to assist those in need in the Kadamaian area.


Previously, donations were also given to 200 recipients in the Penampang area, making a total of 400 recipients in Sabah.


"Out of the 400 individuals, 200 received distribution of food necessities, while the remaining 200 received eyeglass donations.


"The first initiative is to assist those who are financially disadvantaged and in need of basic necessities.


"While the second initiative is to assist those in need of vision support by providing free eyeglasses," he said.


For the provision of necessities, Pernas has donated a total of 800 food boxes to the underprivileged in Perak, Penang, Johor, and Sarawak.
