Together is Better campaign to empower the Orang Asli communitySelangor, Jul 29, 2019 – Columbia Asia Hospital - Puchong (CAH-P) collaborates with Projek 57, an NGO advocating youth and Orang Asli empowerment, to promote awareness on health and unity through community health outreach programs via the newly launched CAH-P Health Mobile. As we approach the month of Merdeka and Hari Malaysia, this campaign is aptly named Together is Better.
“We are honoured to work with Projek 57 through its founders Collin Swee and Syed Sadiq Albar,” says CAH-P General Manager, Puan Intan Abdullah. “Their youth empowerment advocacy has certainly inspired us to bring our healthcare awareness efforts right to the doorsteps of the public.”
“We are opening this opportunity to our corporate clients and invite them to be part of our CSR initiative by offering health screening packages to their employees. For every health screening purchased, RM20 will be channeled towards Projek 57’s Orang Asli Education Fund with potential scholarships in the offering,” she adds.
The highlights of the Together is Better campaign will be a visit by CAH-P and Projek 57 to the Orang Asli villages to provide free health screenings and foster preventive healthcare management.
“Under this campaign, we are also very fortunate to partner with Daihatsu Malaysia who has kindly provided us with a vehicle for our mobile health screening projects. CAH-P would be more than happy to deploy our mobile health screening to their offices.”
On top of the monetary contribution, cloth ribbons, known as Unity Ribbons handmade by the Orang Asli, will also be given away with every health screening package. These Unity Ribbons were especially designed with Jalur Gemilang colours, featuring an icon of our Bapa Kemerdekaan.
“And to add more meaning to this campaign and have plenty of fun to it, we will hold Projek 57 ribbon-making workshop wherever we have our health screenings at other offices,” concludes Puan Intan.
