The management and Allstars (employees) of AirAsia X spent a meaningful afternoon with 75 physically and mentally challenged children at the Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Klang Selangor recently.

Led by Benyamin Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia X Berhad, about 20 Allstar volunteers visited the home and spent an afternoon playing fun games, giving out gifts and duit raya as well as treating the children to a scrumptious meal.

Benyamin said, “We hope that the children have enjoyed this afternoon with us as much as we did organising it for them. Their innocence has inspired us to be a better person and a more responsible corporate citizen. As we grow as the region’s largest long-haul low-cost airline, we should set this as a constant reminder for us to stay humble and true.”

Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Klang Selangor is a multi-racial charity home housing 75 children with age ranging from 3 months to 26 years old who are facing physical and mental challenges such as Down Syndrome, Autism, Blindness, Muteness, mental impairment and other conditions. Most of the children came from underprivileged families who are unable to provide and care for them. For more information on how you can help, log on to www.ppkkck.org.
