When others were busy unwrapping and savouring the goodies from their festive hampers, Bukit Kiara Properties Sdn Bhd (BKP) was on the other hand busy unloading its hampers and boxes of mandarin oranges from the cars to be donated to Rumah Charis Old Folks’ Home and Agathians Shelter recently.   

BKP donated a total of fifteen hampers worth RM 5,000, thirty boxes of mandarin oranges and close to RM1,500 angpow monies received from its business associates and customers to the charity homes in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration.

Themed as “A Gift of Love”, the initiative led by BKP’s Group Managing Director, NK Tong, has been the company’s annual charity affair to spread cheer and joy to the less fortunate and at the same time promote the value of integrity among its employees.  

The company has over the years donated close to 100 hampers which they received from suppliers and business associates to deserving charitable homes.  

NK pointed out that the inspiration behind this event came about from two of the company’s four core values – CARING and INTEGRITY. “In spite of our constant reinforcement of the Integrity value, Chinese New Year is always a period when our office is flooded with hampers and gifts from our suppliers. I am glad that our staff have declared the gifts to the management based on the company’s Code of Ethics,” NK said.

“Without knowing what to do with so many hampers and gifts, one suggestion that came about five years ago was to channel all of them to charity homes. We thought it was a fantastic idea as it does not violate our code of ethics and at the same time enabled us to do our part by giving back to the community,” NK explained. This is the fifth year that the company has been donating all hampers and gifts given by their business associates to charity homes.  

To cap the memorable event, BKP organised a lunch and lion dance performance for Rumah Charis Old Folks’ Home. NK later distributed angpows and mandarin oranges to all present.

Coordinator of Rumah Charis, Suzanne Lee, was appreciative of BKP’s kind gesture and generosity, saying that the visit had been a blessing for the elders as they enjoyed the lion dance performance for the very first time this Chinese New Year. “It is very thoughtful of BKP to spread cheer to the residents of Rumah Charis during this festive season,” she added.

An elated granny was overwhelmed with the lion dance performance and glad to have lunch with the management and staff of BKP again. “I still remember that they came half year ago to perform “spring cleaning” for our home. The staff painted the house, laid new tiles, washed toilets, changed light bulbs and later had lunch with us,” said the 77 year old granny.
