The ‘Back to School Programme’ is MAA Medicare’s signature annual assistance programme, whereby schoolbags inclusive of school and daily necessities are given to school going children of the patients from the dialysis centers. Started in 2009, the Kids@Medicare programme assists children with some school supplies and assistance. Thousands of school bags and items have been handed out to some 250 kids each year. Sponsors for this program are Roche, BATA Malaysia, Munchies, KCT Enterprise Sdn. Bhd. and KL Premium.
The ‘Back to School Programme’ was done at all 12 centers throughout Malaysia. Back to school shopping can be financially challenging, especially when budgets are tight. We sometimes don’t think too much about it, but for our patients, it is difficult for them. This is a great opportunity for them to be relieved from some of their stress. Once again, we thank all our sponsors over the years for our back to school program.
It was definitely heartwarming to see the smiles on their faces. Once again we thank all sponsors over the years for our back to school program.
