Maxis Volunteers Build Homes For Orang Asli From The Ground Up

More than 60 volunteers comprising employees of Maxis and its media agencies built a brand new home each for two Orang Asli families from Perkampungan Orang Asli Serendah, Rawang, Selangor. Held in two sessions from 19-21 August and 26-28 August, the volunteers got down to a full day’s work to build each of the homes from the ground up, with guidance from building specialists provided by EPIC Homes.

The home building project is part of the ‘Maxis Kongsi Home’ launched earlier this year, where Maxis teamed up with Malaysia’s top online shopping destinations and EPIC Homes to create an innovative new way to crowdfund homes for families without a safe place to live. Online shoppers simply needed to visit these shopping sites to purchase building materials for community home-building projects by EPIC Homes.

It was an unforgettable experience for these passionate volunteers to say the least. Here’s what some of the Maxis volunteers had to say:

“It was an amazing experience to be part of a team doing something that is not only fun and educational, but one that actually made a huge change in someone’s life. It shows what creativity and passion can do when blended with energy and enthusiasm,” said Adzhar Ibrahim who is also Maxis’ Head of People & Organisation.

“I think this is one of the most emotionally connected volunteering programmes I’ve ever been part of. Building this with friends from Maxis was so engaging and the sense of fulfillment is not something that we can get easily in any other CR programmes. I definitely look forward to participating in more of this type of initiatives,” said Thum Wei Wen.

“It was truly a humbling experience, to see the children smiling and playing around their new home and tears of joy coming from their parents.. I’m just glad to be able to be a part of this new start in their life,” said a humbled Shazmin Ghazali.

“Little did I know I would be venturing into one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The camaraderie, enthusiasm passion and dedication to build a new home for a family made the journey an exhilarating and memorable one,” said Kunal Gupta.

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are few thousands worth of pure dedication and passion:
