Kuala Lumpur April 25, 2018 – CCM Duopharma Biotech Berhad (CCM Duopharma) has raised RM5,000 in funds, through its “Wear Green for Charity” campaign, for the MAA Medicare Charitable Foundation which offers subsidised dialysis treatment to needy patients who are suffering from chronic kidney disease.
The one-month campaign was organised in conjunction with the World Kidney Month recently to support MAA Medicare’s “Dress Down for Charity” initiative which was held to generate awareness of the importance of healthy kidneys.
During the “Wear Green for Charity” campaign in March, CCM Duopharma’s employees not only made monetary contributions but also squeezed in some fun by wearing green every Friday throughout the month and ran a selfie contest to create excitement and greater interaction between colleagues.
At the end of the campaign, CCM Duopharma employees managed to collect RM2,500 in donation which was matched by the Company’s Renal Care Franchise, bringing the total contribution to RM5,000. CCM Duopharma Group Managing Director, Leonard Ariff Abdul Shatar recently presented a mock cheque for the amount to MAA Medicare Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Aliyah Karen.
