Maybank Philippines, Inc. (MPI) successfully launched last May 9th its two banner initiatives for this year's Cahaya Kasih Community Volunteerism Programme.
The launch-themed Handprints of Hope -- was attended by nearly 200 Maybankers, from the MPI's top management to the staff.
To fuel employee volunteerism among Filipino Maybankers and to live out the Maybank Group's mission of humanising financial services, MPI PCEO Herminio M. Famatigan, Jr. rallied Maybankers to share a part of their time in serving MPI's chosen communities beyond the four walls of their office.
The first project under this year's Cahaya Kasih program is titled: "Deafying Silence." It will be done in partnership with My Children's House of Hope Inc. (Bantay Bata 127), a non-stock, non-profit organisation committed to transforming the lives of hearing impaired children and their families. The program will entail Maybankers to conduct workshops on dance, arts, and writing for the initial phase, while a financial literacy plan to benefit the families of the beneficiaries is being laid out for Phase 2. This project aims to use the creative arts as a channel to enhance the special talents, boost confidence, and encourage self-expression of the DEAF students of My Children's House of Hope.
The second project, titled "My Happy Corner," envisions to set-up small play corners in the rooms under the Pedriatric Cancer Wards of chosen hospitals. This program aims to provide supplemental intangible care to children diagnosed with cancer and enrich their hospital experience while undergoing treatment, in the hope that this will eventually assist in indirectly improving their health. Being eyed for the pilot is St. Luke's Medical Center Global City, recipient of the children's books donated by Maybankers, which were turned over in February 2014.
To conclude the event, each Maybanker placed their handprint on the Cahaya Kasih Commitment Wall as a symbol of their pledge to fully support the CK programs for this year.
Cahaya Kasih is an ongoing platform for Maybank employees to champion positive change affecting the organization, communities the Maybank Group has presence, and environment throughout South East Asia. It is also a channel for the Maybank Group to build strong foundation and relationships between communities that is vital to the Group's growth.
