Get Help?



Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) revitalised its corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment towards its surrounding community in conjunction with the World Children’s Day (WCD) celebration, joined by Ronald McDonald House CharitiesTM Malaysia (RMHC Malaysia), on 1st December 2022, at the Hospital Tunku Azizah, Hospital Wanita & Kanak-Kanak Kuala Lumpur (HTA).


As the season greetings are just around the corner, the Centre embarked on the season of gifting with the joyous CSR occasion and celebrated and visited nearly 200 patients from HTA’s Surgical, Neurological and Orthopaedic, Dental, ENT and Plastic Surgical paediatric wards, with a special appearance by the McDonald’s “the Hamburglar” mascot alongside bounty gifts consisting of toys, comfy blankets, snacks, and freshly cooked meals, specially made for the patients, with the hope to re-enact this year’s WCD’s tagline of “Inclusion for every child”.


“Today’s event will not be successful without RMHC and HTA’s involvement and facilitation. We also believe that it is
important for every associate of WTCKL to instil a sense of love, care, and responsibility towards our community. It is hoped that this CSR event inspires them to help the community voluntarily and, further, builds a brand image of WTCKL associates who are dynamic, sensitive, and compassionate,” said Dato’ Sri Irmohizam, Group Managing Director of WTCKL. He also added, “Special congratulations to the entire team of HTA, led by Hospital Director, Dr. Shamsul Anuar Kamarudin, for their outstanding support and hard work in keeping every child’s health and medical needs met persistently since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.”


Apart from the gifting and mingling sessions with the children, WTCKL delegates also honour the invitation to visit the Ronald McDonald House, located in HTA. The facility has a lounge and meal area, accommodation rooms, prayer room, kitchen, and laundry room that are well-managed, thoughtful, and comfortable for B40 families of HTA’s paediatric patients.


“We at RMHC are truly grateful for all the efforts and the willingness of WTCKL for its mission and vision in strengthening its CSR pillars and chose us to be part of their event. We hope for more programmes, and our future collaborations will benefit the community, especially B40 families with children in need,” said Siti Fikriah, Manager of Ronald McDonald House at HTA.


“HTA’s management expressed its appreciation and gratitude for the support and contributions from various parties and
especially today from WTCKL for choosing HTA as the location of their CSR program. Donations that we have received today surely lighten the burden and shed a little cheer for the patients and families. Indeed, volunteering or community service activities in our country are now growing and receiving massive public attention not only among non-governmental organisations (NGOs) but also becoming a significant matter for various institutions in our country. This noble effort is the best platform for breaking down walls and bridging the gap between government bodies and society,” said Dr. Shamsul Anuar Kamarudin, Director of Hospital Tunku Azizah. He added, “CSR program is a good platform for us to share and interact, which will further strengthen HTA’s cooperation with WTCKL. Surely it is hoped that efforts like this do not stop here, and may it be continued to help the needy.”


At WTCKL, the Centre truly believes that every child should enjoy the same rights and live happily, free from discrimination and intimidation. WTCKL hold a solid principle of giving, from the community to the community spirit. The Centre hopes to work with more corporate and NGO partnerships to spread joy and happiness to more children, one step at a time.
