Ford Motor Company kicked off its 14th annual Global Caring Month this September, as a way for Ford employees around the world to participate in community projects and create positive impacts in others’ lives.
Here in Malaysia, Ford together with its sole distributor, Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC) organised a full day activity at the Sincere Care Home to help improve the living conditions as well as provide emotional support to the elderly.
Sincere Care Home is a nursing home dedicated at looking after senior citizens who were found living on the streets, sent by families who are less able and referred to by the hospital.
During the all-day visit, the volunteers from SDAC and Ford were tasked with housekeeping, meals preparation and entertaining the senior folks. The volunteers even set up a spa corner offering manicure, pedicure, facial and hair cut services to groom the residents of the nursing home!
At the end of the day, a cheque was presented to Sincere Care Home as a donation to aid in the daily operations of the nursing home.
SDAC Managing Director Syed Ahmad Muzri Bin Syed Faiz said, “Ford Global Caring Month programme is a great platform and we are proud to be a part of it. Each year, we get to contribute to a different cause and make a difference in people’s lives. Together with Ford, we are committed to enhancing the quality of life for people in our communities where we live and work.”
Ford Global Caring month is an annual event by the Ford Volunteer Corps. Since its launch in 2005, Ford Volunteer Corps members have contributed more than 1.5 million hours of community service in 50 countries.
Throughout the month of September, the Ford Volunteer Corps will carry out projects in cities and towns across six continents.
