As part of Malaysia’s CSR programme in 2022, International SOS Malaysia visited the indigenous community in Ulu Kuang, Selangor to provide health screenings, educational health talks and distribute self-care kits with provisions to all 164 families residing there.
33 volunteers from International SOS Malaysia travelled 45 minutes by bus and a further 10 minutes on foot into the remote village of Ulu Kuang, setting up our booths at the community hall. For adults above 18, our doctors conducted glucose, BP, BMI and eye checks. Hygiene kits comprising of bath towels, toothpaste and toothbrushes, sulphur soaps, shampoo, lotion and vitamin supplements were handed out, including lunch packs and beverages. As part of our digital innovation focus, we used our Telemedicine technology to perform health checks for the villagers. For the children, we organised several wellness activities such as a Hygiene Awareness talk and demonstration, games and sports, with snacks and stationary sets distributed to them.
All our volunteers across all departments demonstrated our core values of Passion, Expertise, Respect and Care by making a difference to the wellness and quality of life of the families living in Ulu Kuang. This latest community outreach initiative, reinvigorated after a two-year hiatus during the pandemic marks International SOS Malaysia’s 7th Annual CSR Programme, having assisted 376 families to date.
