Daiman Group contributed an amount of RM15,000 to Yayasan Kanser Tunku Laksamana Johor to help cancer patients who are unable to afford the hefty medical costs.
The donation was part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to practice its continuous commitment to care for the local society at large.
A mock cheque of the amount was presented to Johor prince YAM Tunku Abdul Rahman Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Tunku Panglima Johor in conjunction with the 18th edition of the Kembara Mahkota Johor expedition.
The mock cheque was presented by Daiman Group Managing Director Tay Thiam Song at the ceremony held in Kampung Sinaran Baru where the Sultan, his sons and their entourage made a stop as part of the royal expedition on 13th August 2015.
The donation was to provide aid to those in need under the Yayasan, which was established up by Johor Prince Tunku Abdul Jalil, who is Sultan Ibrahim and DYMM Permaisuri of Johor Raja Zarith Sofiah Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah’s fourth child.
The Yayasan is an excellent example of a good practice led by Johor’s royal family and the Group is honoured and excited to be part of such a noble cause.
One of Daiman Group’s property investment businesses is the Menara Landmark Medical Suites where specialized medical professionals offer a variety of medical services. Menara Landmark Medical Suites also part of the Smart Healthy City & Communities initiative under Iskandar Malaysia.
The Medical Suites includes a Cancer Centre operated by Dr A. Radzi, which is why the Group understood the struggles faced by cancer patients and their family members.
As such, the timely contribution to Yayasan Kanser Tunku Laksamana Johor reflects Daiman Group’s concern in providing aid and medical care to cancer patients.
