Every year, Zurichers around the world commit one week to develop their respective communities. This year's Zurich Community Week (ZCW) was another success with a nationwide total of 2,638 volunteer hours being contributed to make a difference in the lives of our children and exampling our CSR motto of #TrueLoveForOurChildren.
Zurich Malaysia brought a taste of tropical paradise to its ZCW with the theme ‘Zutopia’. Taking place from 24 to 28 July, the week-long charity initiative kicked off at the Head Office with a donation drive among Zurichers, charity movie nights for underprivileged children and ended with the highly anticipated Zutopia Charity Day held at our headquarters in Menara Zurich, Kuala Lumpur. It saw more than 1,000 Zurichers crowding the lobby of Menara Zurich to participate in a series of fun-filled charitable activities.
The campaign managed to collect a total of MYR 61,254.30 which was channelled to 4 selected beneficiaries in Malaysia which are Spastic Children Association of Selangor & Federal Territory, Trinity Children Centre, Rumah Titian Kaseh, as well as Persatuan Sokongan Ibu Dan Anak Kurang Upaya Azwar Kuala Lumpur & Selangor. These selected beneficiaries focus on the welfare and wellbeing of underprivileged children, which is well in line with Zurich Malaysia’s commitment in contributing to the development and betterment of children.
Meanwhile at branches nationwide, our Zurichers were empowered to run their own charitable activities involving children. Many branches donated monetary funds, school and food supplies, helped cleaned charitable homes and even treated underprivileged children to a shopping spree. Special mention to Ipoh & Kota Kinabalu branch for going the extra mile by not only contributing to one children home but to 3 separate children homes over the course of 2 days.
