KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 8 — Four school across Semenyih and Hulu Langat have benefitted from Yayasan Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad’s (MRSB) assistance when their schools were repaired for them. 

The foundation completed repair works at the schools that cost RM35,000 recently.

Two schools from each town were selected. 

In a press statement from the foundation, it said that contribution to the schools in Semenyih included chairs and tables, and student toilets while the Hulu Langat schools received a refurbished library, new paint work, along with chairs and tables, and disabled toilets.

“Over 1,000 students from SMK Bandor Tasik Kesuma, SK Bandor Rinching, SK Lubok Kelubi, and SK Dusun Tua will benefit from these repairs,” it said.

Yayasan MRCB trustee Datuk Shamrat Sen Gupta said it tried to ensure it continuously identified impactful causes.

“We undertake various programmes to support needy students to enable them to improve and forge their career paths in the future.’

This is not the first time schools have benefitted from Yayasan MRCB’s hard work. 

To date, it has spent over RM1 million for disadvantaged students and communities across Malaysia.

It launched a meal programme in June, costing RM231,000, where students from 12 schools across five states will benefit.

This was held in several of the foundation’s adopted schools in Perak, Selangor, Penang, and Federal Territories.
