Happy Library Book and Toy Donation Campaign

Canon's initiative in promoting the reading culture among the younger generation culminated in the setup of a library for underprivileged children at Sungkai, Perak. Over 50 orang asli children, between the ages of 4 to 13 years, from Kampung Tidong benefitted from the library.

A second hand books and toys donation campaign was carried out at Canon's headquarters for a duration of 2 weeks, from 20 June till 1 July 2016. Donations from staff and members of the public flooded the collection house.

 

All items were sent to Kampung Tidong, Sungkai, Perak on 16 July 2016. The setting up of the 'Library of Hope' was witnessed and celebrated by 100 participants comprised of the villagers, parents, children and volunteers. Other contributions from donors such as stationery sets, school bags and many more were distributed to the orang asli children and brought smiles to their face.
