Johor Corporation (JCorp) and its Group of Companies, in collaboration with Yayasan Johor Corporation, a foundation under JCorp promoting its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) concept collaborated with the Tunku Laksamana Johor Cancer Foundation (TLJCF) through the “Everywhere Classroom” project, in keeping with its mission of Membina & Membela.
50 laptops were provided to Johoreans, especially young cancer patients, as part of this focused programme, enabling them to remain engaged when receiving treatment. Recipients will be able to use these new computers to keep up with lessons and as an access to technology. His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar’s continuous efforts to improve Bangsa Johor inspired this initiative.
The handover was presented to Her Majesty Raja Zarith Sofiah Binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah, Permaisuri of Johor by Rozaini Mohd Sani, Chairman of Yayasan JCorp and accompanied by Datuk Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim, President and Chief Executive of JCorp and Kol. Dato’ Mohamed Perang Haji Musa, Executive Director of TLJCF.
Datuk Syed Mohamed said, “In conjunction with His Majesty Sultan of Johor’s 63rd birthday this year, we were enthused to continue His Majesty’s efforts and ensure that those in need are provided with the necessary tools to allow them to continue with their education. We hope these young cancer patients undergoing treatment are now able to stay connected, whether for education or personal needs and will benefit from this via the Everywhere Classroom initiative.”
He added that the laptops are important as the past year has changed the landscape of how classes are conducted due to COVID-19.
Since 2016, JCorp and its Group of Companies have donated more than RM1.3 million to TLJCF through various initiatives. Since March 2020, JCorp has donated close to RM32 million to the COVID-19 pandemic through the JCorp Prihatin fund.
