Nasim donates RM200,000 to Hospis Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: Nasim Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of the Peugeot brand in Malaysia, recently raised RM200,000 for Hospis Malaysia as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) exercise launched in July.

The funds were raised from the sale of Peugeot cars and spare parts by Nasim during the duration of the CSR exercise which was part of the company's Peugeot 200-Year Anniversary promotional campaign, according to a statement issued on Monday, Oct 25.

Nasim chief executive officer and joint group executive of the Naza Group,?? SM Nasaruddin SM Nasimuddin said the company hoped the contribution to Hospis Malaysia would help the organisation continue its work in caring for patients with terminal illnesses.

He presented the donation to Hospis Malaysia last week following the launch of the new Nasim Puchong 2S centre.

Hospis Malaysia is a charitable organisation that offers palliative care to patients suffering from life-limiting illnesses such as cancer and AIDS who live in the Klang Valley.

From a hospice with 44 patients under its care 18 years ago, Hospis Malaysia, now receives a yearly referral of approximately 1,500 patients a year.

Nasim's CSR exercise with Hospis Malaysia was part of its Peugeot 200-Year Anniversary campaign to mark the French brand's bicentennial year.
