Fifty-nine employees of Allianz Malaysia gave their precious time and effort in volunteering for the Pertubuhan Tindakan Wanita Islam (Pertiwi) Soup Kitchen recently.
Among the volunteers were Allianz General Insurance Malaysia CEO Zakri Khir and Allianz Life insurance Malaysia CEO Joseph Gross. The insurer is planning five more similar volunteering sessions this year.
Allianz Malaysia’s and Pertiwi’s relationship began in November last year, when the insurer donated a Nissan Navara four-wheel-drive pickup truck to the Pertiwi Health Services volunteer doctors, who
provide basic medical services to those in need.
“We have many employees who want to serve, but they do not know how and where to start,” said Ng Siew Gek, Allianz
Malaysia’s head for corporate social responsibility. “So we hope that through these initiatives, we can provide them with a platform to volunteer and continue reaching out to the underserved community and do something good for them.”
