CSR 2014

2014 - Leading the way with heart

Corporate Social Responsibility is our continuous commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of our workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.
'Corporate Social Responsibility' means to us a Corporate initiative to assess and take responsibility for the company's effects on the environment and impact on social welfare. The term generally applies to company efforts that go beyond what may be required by regulators or environmental protection groups.
Corporate social responsibility may also be referred to as "corporate citizenship" and can involve incurring short-term costs that do not provide an immediate financial benefit to the company, but instead promote positive social and environmental change.
Medical-Latex continues to set aside an attractive budget for it's CSR efforts in the course of 2014 working towards returning to the society in which it works, lives and plays in.
The following organizations received donations.

(1) United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)

UNHCR distributes more than 150,000 condoms annually targeting the refugee population in Malaysia focusing in Klang Valley.
They requested for a condom donation of 200,000 condoms per annum for 5 years (2014 - 2018). A total of 1 million condoms would be donated by MLD directly to the Project Care Life, a Community Health Workers Programme run by the Coalition of Burma Ethnics Malaysia (COBEM) refugee community and for the refugee cause. UNHCR will receive the condoms from MLD.
The allocation for 2014 of 200,000 condoms is ready and now only waiting delivery instructions from the UNHCR.

(2) Soroptimist International Johor Bahru

In Malaysia, Soroptimist International clubs have been serving the local communities since 1991 and have thirteen clubs in the country, one of which is Soroptimist International Johor Bahru (SIJB).
SIJB was established 13 years ago and their main ongoing project is Project ABC I and II. This project deals with the Rohingya's Refugees from Myanmar who are under the protection of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).
Since Malaysia did not sign the Convention 51, the children of refugees are not allowed into Malaysian Government-based school hence the birth of Project ABC I & II by SIJB. As they are a non profitable organization, they do not receive any financial aid from the Government. They therefore have to organize fund-raising events. They also humbly rely on donations from corporate companies and individuals to maintain the cost of running their schools. It is estimated at RM 25K per year for each school, inclusive of transports, utilities, stationeries and miscellaneous expenses.
