Oxy Collaborates With Pintar Foundation & Watsons In Support Of Education For The Underprivileged Children Through Its Sending Love & Care Campaign
Oxy has launched its Environmental, Safety, and Health (ESH) campaign in support of education for the underprivileged students of the B40 communities in the Klang Valley. Themed “Sending Love & Care”, this campaign in collaboration with PINTAR Foundation and Watsons, will sponsor an after-class program for 55 students at a selected national primary school located in Bangsar.
During this 1-month long donation drive campaign, which will happen throughout the month of October 2021, RM0.50 from the sales proceed of every Oxy product sold at Watsons will be contributed to the campaign fund.
According to PINTAR Foundation’s General Manager Norzalina Masom, the underprivileged students that will benefit from this campaign are from families with monthly household income of less than RM2,500. Due to financial constraints and the lack of educational resources, these students are struggling to cope with their studies especially in the core subjects such as English, Mathematics and Science.
“We are really grateful to Oxy for this initiative. The lockdown due to the pandemic has affected the academic progress of students especially when they do not have computers or mobile devices to access online learning,” said Norzalina.
Through the after-class program which will commence in January 2022, each student will attend a total of 14 sessions of extra classes per subject held over a duration of 12 months. Additionally, funds raised from the campaign will also be used for the setting up of a mini library at the school to promote good reading habits among students.
“The Sending Love & Care campaign is part of a regionally consolidated effort from The Mentholatum Company that shares a common goal and objective which is to give back to the society. We hope to reach out and extend help to the needy through other similar programmes that will be conducted annually, “said Lim Mei Yuen, General Manager of Rohto-Mentholatum (M) Sdn Bhd.
“With the assistance of PINTAR Foundation, we will continue to monitor the progress of these 55 students in our sponsored programme. We look forward to seeing them excel in school and make a success of themselves,” added Lim.
