KONE UnifieRs’ Gadget Donation to Underprivileged Children

 On 26th February 2021, 20 UnifieRs, members of the Sports and Social Club from KONE Malaysia, divided themselves into groups and visited seven locations around the Klang Valley area to distribute laptops to selected orphanages as well as underprivileged families as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. This action took place with the aim to alleviate the extra burdens caused by COVID-19 which will ensure the children at the orphanage and underprivileged families are not left behind in their education due to the requirements of PdPR. 




To help combat the COVID-19 pandemic, which has had a lasting impact on the society KONE UnifieRs’ believes that now, more than ever, the people of the world and local communities must band together to not only overcome this challenge, but emerge stronger, together in a time of great change and uncertainty. 


KONE UnifieRs’ President, Mr Vinoth Kumar swiftly gathered all his team members and kick started this initiative an on-going series of initiatives. He used KONE’s internal communication platforms and UnifieRs’ social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook & LinkedIn seeking gadget and monetary donations. In just three weeks, the team raised a sum totalling RM89,344 and desktops. 


25 laptops and desktops were donated to two orphanages; Sai Orphanage Home in Klang and Pusat Jagaan Amal Asyura in Sungai Buloh and five underprivileged families. KONE was able to help ease the lives of 93 children.  


The backbone of KONE’s CSR Initiative, Managing Director of KONE Malaysia, Mr. Edward Loy said “I am very proud of KONE’s UnifieRs for the success during the CSR drive in such a short time. We were very blessed that we were able to bring smiles on the children’s faces, the team enjoyed spending time with the management of Sai Orphanage Home and Pusat Jagaan Amal Asyura in Sungai Buloh as well as the families. In our own efforts to cushion the impacts of COVID-19, we will continue to do our part in giving back to the community in which we do business”. Mr Vinoth Kumar thanked everyone who participated and donated during this charity drive. In tandem with the recently launched KONE Refreshed Values, the UnifieRs will continue to implement the 4Cs of ‘Care, Customer, Collaboration and Courage’ in our upcoming activities this year. 


KONE Malaysia has been helping affected families since the announcement of the first Movement Control Order (MCO) last year. That initiative was funded by KONE Global and coordinated by The KONEctors, KONE Malaysia’s previous Sports and SocialClub. The KONEctors engaged with local NGO, Happy Neighbourhood and donated food and laptops. Together with the leadership team, they were also able to build mini library for the affected families.
