23/03/2018Corporate Communications

In conjunction with the school holidays, IOI Group’s foundation, Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng (Yayasan TSLSC), hosted a charity screening of the movie ‘Lee Chong Wei: Rise Of The Legend’ which brightened the day of 57 underprivileged children and teenagers, between the age nine to 19; coming from both Padmasambhava Children Loving Association and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai Selangor. 

The day started with the children and caretakers arriving at Palm Garden Hotel (PGH) by bus, where they were treated to a sumptuous Thai meal for lunch at Aroi Dee Thai Restaurant, PGH. Prior to lunch, a short ice-breaking game was carried out to have children from both charity homes mingle with one another as a way for them to make new friends.

By 1.00 pm, the whole entourage made the move to IOI City Mall where the charity screening was held at the Golden Screen Cinemas. Everyone was looking forward to the movie as it represented Malaysia’s pride and joy. The children were also treated to a set of popcorn and drinks to make their movie outing a sweeter one to remember.

“We are delighted to bring much smiles and laughter to the underprivileged children and hope that the movie will inspire them to carry the aspiration to excel in life,” said Yayasan TSLSC Executive Director Datin Joanne Wong. 


And it’s a wrap! A big thank you to Yayasan TSLSC and all IOI volunteers for making this outing a success.

Special Movie Screenings are a part of IOI Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme, in line with the foundation’s objectives in the betterment of society and community enrichment. 
 
Another community effort of Yayasan TSLSC is the opening of Bargain Basement, an innovative social enterprise, that encourages the public to donate pre-loved or unused items to help the community. This initiative enables the community to access quality items at a low price. All net proceeds are channeled to different charities biannually.
