Gurdian & NIVEA Brings Joy To Children at Surianan Education Centers with RM50,00 Spent on Center Refurbishment

NIVEA, together with Guardian Malaysia, has just completed a remarkable refurbishment programme that positively impacts the lives of many at two community education centers run by the NGO, Suriana Welfare Society. 

During the campaign period from 2 October to 31 October 2023, the inspiring CSR project, "Share The Care, You Buy, We Donate" has raised RM50,000 to cover the refurbishment cost of two education centres run by the Suriana Welfare Society.

By purchasing NIVEA products worth RM50 or more in a single receipt during the campaign period from 2 October to 31 October 2023, RM2 is contributed towards the refurbishment of these educational centers. Together, we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of underprivileged children.

The two education centres run by the Suriana Welfare Society, aimed at empowering urban poor children through holistic education and by fortifying caregivers-parents synergy via continuous engagements. Providing a safe area to educate both the children and parents is part of Suriana’s purpose of “Community Transformation Through Education”.  

Anna Hull, Commercial Director, Guardian Malaysia said:

“We are very happy to collaborate with NIVEA Malaysia on this particular CSR refurbishment project to help the 91 children of Desa Mentari in PJ and Desa Ria in Kuala Lumpur.  The Suriana Education Centres needed repairs and renovations to provide a comfortable and conducive environment for the children to study and learn. We hope with these refurbished centers, Suriana can take in more children as there is a long waiting list.”   

Ng Hock Guan, Country Manager, Beiersdorf Malaysia and Singapore, said:

“NIVEA is proud to be part of this meaningful and important project that is also in line with our CSR purpose to “Care Beyond Skin”.  We hope that the project will continue to have an impact on children of the urban poor, and I would like to congratulate Suriana Welfare Society for their important charitable work that they have been doing so far. Our heartfelt thanks also to Guardian Malaysia, who graciously partnered with us on this project and to all our loyal NIVEA consumers who have contributed to this impactful project,” he concluded.
