Bridgestone Visits The House of Love Orphanage
The House of Love, located in Klang, is home to underprivileged children between the ages of three to 15. Last July, Bridgestone’s employees visited the 19 children, who resided there with four live-in staff, for an afternoon of bonding as well as to supply four new Ecopia EP200 tyres for the orphanage’s vehicle, which brings the children to school and tuition classes daily.
According to Jo Takekawa, Managing Director of Bridgestone Malaysia, “The Bridgestone Group commits itself to contributing to society not only through its business operations, but also through good corporate citizenship. In our efforts to support the local communities, we undertake initiatives directed towards addressing local issues, such as to help the younger generation in need. We strongly believe that these children have great futures and they need our support to realise their potential. We want them to grow up strong, healthy, and have the same opportunity for education like most children in Malaysia.”
