Adopt-a-Mosque 2017

CMS donates RM140,000 to Mosques in Sarawak

23 May 2017 – In line with CMS’ ongoing commitment to community development and investment, the company is donating a total of RM140,000.00 to the Muslim communities of Sarawak during the holy month of Ramadhan as part of its Adopt-a-Mosque programme.

Since Friday, 19 May 2017, CMS has been distributing cheques to 70 mosques and suraus throughout Sarawak starting with Sibu, Bintulu, Miri and Kuching on 23 May 2017. The total disbursement this year covers Kuching, Kota Samarahan, Betong, Sarikei, Bintangor, Sibu, Miri and Bintulu. Each received RM2,000.00 to help fund their Ramadan activities. CMS has been continuing this yearly commitment towards the community for the past 15 years.

Recognising its role as a leading facilitator for growth in the State, with a legacy spanning over 40 years, the Adopt-a-Mosque initiative is part of CMS’ wider CSR programme to give back to the communities in which it operates through community outreach, corporate philanthropy and health, safety and awareness campaigns.

Speaking about the Adopt-a-Mosque programme, Group Managing Director of CMS, Dato’ Richard Curtis, said: “The holy month of Ramadhan is a time for reflection about the things that matter most to us – the people who enrich our lives and the communities to which we belong. Ramadhan is one of our community’s constants – an annual and timeless reminder about the importance of giving, and it’s in that spirit that we continue to invest in the maintenance continuity of mosques and suraus throughout Sarawak.”

CMS’ ongoing social responsibilities are carried out in line with its ‘Doing Good’ philosophy and group-wide employee volunteer programme that guides employees to act as responsible and caring representatives of the organisation and as citizens.
