Female students from the participating secondary schools in both regions were also provided with reusable sanitary pads, further highlighting the company’s efforts in conservation and dissuading single-use sanitary pads.

In the Central region, the Back-To-School programme was held at Publika Shopping Gallery, where, in addition to receiving the school supplies, the students were given an outing around the retail space.

As for the Southern region, the programme was hosted at the company’s office in Imperia Tower, Iskandar Puteri and SK Ladang Pendas, both located in Johor Bahru.

"Aligning with our CHIEF values, we always believe in the importance of giving back and forming closer ties with the communities. As such, we are honoured to work alongside Yayasan UEM in this programme, specially catered for underprivileged students to reduce some of their families' financial hardships and burdens," said UEM Sunrise chief executive officer Sufian Abdullah.

"We are deeply appreciative to Yayasan UEM for supporting us to alleviate some of the students’ financial hardships, which deeply resonates with our own Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts. We hope that our contribution to these students will help spur their happiness and excitement to go to school and focus on their studies,” he added.
