Volvo Trucks gives back to Malaysia’s underprivileged
Published on: Thursday, August 22, 2019

SHAH ALAM: Volvo Trucks, one of the world’s largest heavy-duty truck brands, recently launched its corporate social responsibility initiative comprising the contribution of a heavy-duty Volvo FM330 4x2 rigid truck complete with customised body frabrication to the Kechara Soup Kitchen Society (KSK) , a registered non‐profit organisation that provides food sustenance and basic medical care for the homeless and poor communities in Malaysia.

The initiative is part of Volvo Group’s global corporate social responsibility programme called the Seasonal Gift which is carried out annually around the globe, with the key objective to creating better welfare and prosperity for local communities by supporting meaningful social causes.

The truck, once handed over to KSK, will serve as a multi-purpose vehicle for food collection and distribution, mobile clinic and mobile space for educational activities for poor communities in the rural areas.

Mitch Peden, Managing Director of Volvo Malaysia shares, “We at Volvo Trucks are very excited to have identified KSK as the beneficiary of our Seasonal Gift corporate social responsibility fund. The decision to donate a truck to KSK was a logical one, given that all their charity work is fully in line with Volvo Trucks’ core values of quality, safety and environmental care.

“KSK’s charity efforts emphasise on reducing hunger and social issues, which help raise the quality of life for the homeless and poor families from all backgrounds. We also understand that KSK has been actively running a food bank programme and had been facing several logistical challenges. Thus, we believe our truck can truly help KSK to operate more effectively for the benefit of the communities." -Thestar/carsifu.my
