BATANG KALI, 21 December – Credit Guarantee Corporation Malaysia Berhad (CGC) brought happiness and smiles to 130 school-going children from Hulu Tamu Orang Asli Settlement with ‘Back-to-School’ CSR Programme recently.

All the 130 children who are attending kindergarten, primary and secondary schools were presented with new school uniforms, bags and stationery, followed by exciting activities and a scrumptious lunch especially for the children and their families.

“We are delighted to bring cheer and warmth to the children of Hulu Tamu settlement with our ‘Back-to-School’ programme today. This programme is part of our continuous effort in reaching out to a wider cross section of the community through a series of CSR initiatives organised throughout the year”, said CGC’s President / Chief Executive Officer, Mohd Zamree Mohd Ishak.
