Make-A-Wish Malaysia and the Karunai Home have expressed their gratitude to ISG after the company raised RM 120,000 (£21,852) at a fundraising event in Kuala Lumpur.

Make-A-Wish Malaysia CEO, Irene Tan, said the charity was grateful to ISG for selecting it as one of the beneficiaries of its ‘Eat, Drink and Be Giving’ event, which took place on 3 November 2017 at the five-star Le Méridien Hotel.

“A wish helps the sick child and family to unite, heal and remain strong as they continue their battle against a terrible illness,” Irene said.

“With this support we aim to help more children from other states.”

The Rumah Kebajikan Karunai Illam, founded in 2001, is a home for underprivileged children in the Kepong region of Kuala Lumpur.

“Thank you #TeamISG,” said a representative from the charity.

“Your generous support is valuable to our cause in nurturing and caring for underprivileged children and we are really grateful for ISG’s fundraising efforts to help our organisation.”

The cheques, amounting to RM 60,000 each, were handed over to the two charity partners on 24 November 2017.

Over 170 guests from the construction industry attended the event, which included a charity auction in which prizes ranged from furniture, artwork, travel packages and a signed England Rugby Union jersey.

Speaking at the event, ISG’s managing director in Malaysia, Paul Marshall, said: “Undoubtedly, this event wouldn’t be a success without the support of our customers, trade contractors and industry partners and employees.

“I would like to extend a huge thank you to all who have contributed to our fundraising efforts today, which will help make a significant difference to these charity organisations.”
