Repsol Oil & Gas Malaysia Limited has sent 27 company staff to the peak of Mount Kinabalu since 2013 to raise funds for welfare bodies in Sabah.
All the successful ascents had raised nearly RM300,000 meant for various bodies in the State, Company Stakeholder Relations Malaysia Manager Farid Jaafar said.
“In Repsol, we promote volunteerism among our staff and in Sabah, we have been organising annual expeditions on Mount Kinabalu, where our staff will climb to raise funds.”
Speaking during the company’s Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Open House, Thursday, Farid said as a corporate citizen, Repsol Malaysia will continue implementing community services with other government and non-government agencies in order to help raise the socio-economy of the locals.
The four key programmes are on education, safety, health and healthy lifestyle and human capital development, he said.
The open house was attended by Head of State Tun Juhar Mahiruddin and his consort, both of whom presented ‘duit raya’ to 50 orphans and children with special needs on behalf of the company.
