KUALA LUMPUR, 22 March 2024 – TM, through its social foundation arm, Yayasan TM (YTM),

announces the continuation of its ‘Program Cahaya Ramadan’. This year, the programme

allocates RM320,000 to aid approximately 3,000 beneficiaries across Malaysia, including asnaf,

orphans, B40 families, single mothers, Persons with Disabilities (PWD), tahfiz students, and the

Orang Asli community.

 

The initiative, mobilised through our state offices nationwide, focuses on distributing food

baskets and raya essential items such as baju raya and duit raya (cash) to the identified

beneficiaries during Ramadan.

 

Ainol Shaharina Sahar, Director of Yayasan TM said, “It is our honour to once again initiate the

‘Program Cahaya Ramadan’, extending our hand in solidarity to those in need during this

reflective and benevolent time of year. Our goal is to alleviate the hardships of our beneficiaries,

ensuring they too can share in the joy and togetherness that Ramadan brings. We aim to foster

a sense of community and hope, particularly among children, as they observe the sacred month

and look forward to Eid ul-Fitr celebrations.”

 

In addition to these efforts, YTM is launching the ‘Dana Kasih Yayasan TM’ fundraising

campaign, aiming to raise RM30,000 to specifically assist Orang Asli families in Pos Kuala Mu,

Sungai Siput, Perak. This campaign focuses on gathering funds to provide these families with

essential food supplies for Ramadan, aiming to ensure they have the resources needed for a

fulfilling festive period. The public is encouraged to support this noble cause by making donations

through YTM’s bank account at 14180010000426 (Bank Islam). For further details, please visit

YTM’s social media channels.

 

In 2023, YTM’s ‘Program Cahaya Ramadan’ has benefitted more than 3,000 beneficiaries

through over 20 programmes across the country. YTM collaborated with Pejabat Ahli Parlimen

Lembah Pantai to organise the programme which was attended by its Member of Parliament,

YB Fahmi Fadzil.

 

As the programme continues to grow and reach more communities, YTM remains dedicated to

nurturing hope, fostering solidarity, and creating lasting impacts in the lives of the underserved,

reinforcing its goal of a more inclusive and supportive society.
