(MY) Sime Darby Auto ConneXion Participates In 14th Ford Global Caring Month

Big corporations continue to be successful because of the support and business the communities they operate in give them. Never forgetting this, companies like Ford Motor Company have a Global Caring Month where thousands of its employees around the world participate in community projects to reciprocate and to create positive impact in people’s lives

For the 14th year of the Global Caring Month, Ford together with its sole distributor, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), organised a full-day activity for the elderly at the Sincere Care Home to help improve their living conditions as well as to provide emotional support. During the full-day visit, SDAC-Ford volunteers offered help with housekeeping and meals preparation and entertaining the senior folks. Apart from food and games, a spa corner offering manicure, pedicure, facial and haircut services were also set up by the talent volunteers to help groom the residents of the nursing home.

Sincere Care Home is a nursing home dedicated at looking after senior citizens who were found living on the streets, sent by families who are less able and referred to by the hospital. To help reduce the financial burden of its daily operation, the volunteers also made contributions in kind and in cash.

Enhancing quality of life

“Ford Global Caring Month programme is a great platform and we are proud to be a part of it. Each year, we get to contribute to a different cause and make a difference in people’s lives. Together with Ford, we are committed to enhancing the quality of life for people in our communities where we live and work” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Bin Syed Faiz, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto ConneXion.

Ford Global Caring Month is a signature annual event of the Ford Volunteer Corps. Since its launch in 2005 by Executive Chairman Bill Ford, Ford Volunteer Corps members have contributed more than 1.5 million hours of community service in 50 countries, representing more than US$40 million of in-kind community investments. During the month, the Ford Volunteer Corps tackled hundreds of projects in cities, towns and villages in six continents. Ford Fund is contributing more than US$675,000 in grants to purchase tools and supplies for many of the global projects.

“Ford volunteers are improving access to clean water, feeding the hungry, building homes, renovating schools and providing opportunities to help make people’s lives better all over the world,” said Todd Nissen, director, Ford Volunteer Corps. “Each Ford volunteer is making a valued contribution to stronger communities and a better world.”
