In line with Carlsberg Malaysia’s long-term commitment in giving back to the community, Carlsberg Malaysia announced its annual sponsorship of RM15,000 for the Year 2010 to the Malaysian Zoological Society (Zoo Negara), as the adoptive parents of two of Malaysia’s very-own Elephants, 31 and 33 year old female elephants - “Siti” and “Sibol” on 4 December at Zoo Negara, Kuala Lumpur.
For 24 consecutive years, Carlsberg Malaysia has been contributing to this annual Community project, to date Carlsberg Malaysia has provided financial support of more than RM 215, 000 to Zoo Negara, to ensure that the Malaysian Elephants are well maintained and continue to entertain and educate visitors to Zoo Negara.
As part of Carlsberg Malaysia’s annual sponsorship to Zoo Negara, the company also invited a group of 40 children from Pusat Jagaan Ragaventhirar Karunai Illam and El Saddai Shelter to spend a fun-filled day at Zoo Negara.
In conjunction with the event, Carlsberg Malaysia also made cash contribution of RM5, 000 each from the Carlsberg Golf Classic Charity Fund to Pusat Jagaan Ragaventhirar Karunai Illam and El Saddai Shelter respec- tively for the orphanage homes’ expenses. Carlsberg Malaysia hopes that the contribution will help ease the financial burden of the two shelter homes.
The children from Pusat Jagaan Ragaventhirar Karunai Illam and El Saddai Shelter were greeted with goodie bags from Carlsberg Malaysia and then to an enjoyable Saturday morning at the National Zoo.
