Championing a cancer-free life through the ‘Hut to Heart’ initiative
Pizza Hut Malaysia (PHM) collaborated with Mutiara Johor Corporation and Hospital Sultanah Aminah (HSA) to launch ‘The Caring Home’ at Tunku Laksamana Johor Haematology Ward as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative known as ‘Hut to Heart’ that champions a cancer-free life.
Officiated by Her Majesty, Permaisuri Johor, Raja Zarith Sofiah Binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah, The Caring Home is a place equipped with welfare facilities, to improve the palliative care of patients, which is a crucial aspect to assist recovery, as well as providing better rest and relaxation facilities for their caretakers and medical staff.
Datin Noor Laila Yahaya, Chairman of Mutiara Johor Corporation expressed, “We are grateful and humbled by our customers who have come forward to contribute in support of our cause. Giving back to the society is more than just donations – it’s about making a difference.”
The Caring Home consists of areas which have been thoughtfully designed to provide comfort for patients and caretakers. The resting rooms are well-lit with natural sunlight, fully air-conditioned with comfortable beds for patients and their family members to rest. Besides, there are also facilities like the nurses’ lounge and a healing garden.
“I commend PHM for taking the initiative to rally support from Malaysians in improving the quality of life of our patients and provide support to their caretakers as well as the medical staff in HSA. We hope that this would be a model to demonstrate how strides can be made through partnership between corporation and public sector to better meet the necessities of the people,” said Johor Health Director, Dr. Selahuddeen Bin Abd Aziz.
In support of ‘Hut to Heart’ initiative, Pizza Hut customers may donate 20sen with every total bill either via Dine In or via Pizza Hut Delivery. Donation boxes are also placed at all Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide.
