UMLand J-Biotech Park (UJP) recently organised a Back To School programme to assist needy parents and students with school-related expenses.
A coming together of UJP and Johor Empowerment of Intellectual Women Association (JEIWA), the initiative benefited some 100 needy students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Cahaya Baru, Pasir Gudang who received donations in the form of school essentials.
JEIWA as UJP’s strategic partner in the programme also invited other companies such as McDonald’s, Lembaga Tabung Haji, AQZ Kukuh Niaga, Juara Film Production, Palm Oil Research Institute Malaysia (PORIM) and Mondelez to contribute to the cause.
UJP CEO Mohd Noor Abdul Salam said that a total of RM 25,000 was raised for the noble effort.
“I hope that this effort will further motivate the residents of Kampung Cahaya Baru to create educated minds,” said Mohd Noor Abdul Salam.
Johor Halal Park which is on its way to becoming Malaysia’s First Premium Bio-Halal Industrial Park is a joint venture between UMLand and the Johor state via J-Biotech.
