Penang & Kedah Flood Relief Donation Drive
Date: 13th November 2017
As part of Cosway’s corporate social responsibility initiatives, a flood relief donation drive was organised in aid of residents affected by the torrential storm that flooded the states of Penang and Kedah. We would like to convey a big thank you to our Cosway Community that reached out to support relief efforts for these flood victims. We donated much-needed items such as household cleaning products, fleece blankets and food items to help them get back on their feet. It is these meaningful gestures that make a big difference and it is our hope that it helps them recover from the devastating effects of the flood.
