As you may have seen on my Instagram page, I’ve had the greatest opportunity to get involved in a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programme called “Water For Life”. This programme was developed by PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) to strengthen their position as a responsible corporate citizen amongst Malaysians.. “Water For Life” was initiated in 2013 in collaboration with the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) and is targeted to provide villagers with access to uninterrupted clean water supply.
Being privileged and living in the city, we tend to take advantage of having clean water and when water is low or even cut for a few hours, we freak out.. Imagine living in a small village where water comes from the actual source and maintenance may be minimal but hard work and needed to be done by yourself.. We (city people) for instance have people doing it all for us and we done see how all of these things can affect our lives..
Now in their 4th year, PETRONAS, MNS and volunteers (including me) got together and set out to Dungun, Terengganu to help restore the water infrastructure to over 150 families in both Kampung Jongok Batu and Kampung Belimbing.
