CSR 2016

In conjunction with Intellect 23rd Anniversary, our company took a different approached for our 2016 CSR initiative. We teamed up with an NGO engaged in an important community cause that duly needed our support. With the increase in the number of suicide cases in Penang and throughout the world, we were deeply impressed by the work the Befrienders were engaged. Hence we worked in collaboration with them on a community project. 10th September is World Suicide Prevention Day and together with Befrienders Penang, organized a very worthy forum & workshop titled Preventing Suicide, Connect, Communicate, Care. Intellect Group, as a responsible corporate citizen, was also the main financial sponsor of this event The success of the event held in Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang was overwhelming with more than 300 participants attended the forum & workshops and we believed through this partnership, a difference to the lives of many had been made. We were very touched by the joint effort by mental health NGOs and the mental health professionals that came together to make this event such a great success.
