Aged between 7 to 12 years old, many of them have been through a lot as they live in an area that has earned a notorious reputation as a hotspot for illicit activities. Most of the have seen and heard more than the average child and adult! PAKK provides these children with a haven conducive for learning, character building activities and positive interaction with their peers and carers.

Stopped the Rain from Falling
In addition to sponsoring school uniforms and in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 promoting Good Health and Well-Being, Tune Protect literally ‘stopped the rain from falling’ by plugging the major roof leakage which severely affected the center’s classrooms, pantry and staircase with a full sponsorship for urgent repairs. In doing so, the repairs also enabled the center to resume educational activities and lessons, in line with our mission to support quality education.

The 2017 Major Floods
The recent floods in November 2017 that hit the northwest states of Peninsular Malaysia devastated Penang, Bukit Mertajam, Kepala Batas and several other locations, killing several and displacing thousands from their homes. It was a catastrophe that hit the region unexpectedly with prolonged rainfall.

The major floods in Penang that took several lives, paralyzed the city, cut-off communication and delayed rescue efforts.


Tune Protect Emergency Flood Relief
In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 3 and 11 which promote Good Health & Well-Being, and Personal Safety, Tune Protect urgently facilitated an Emergency Flood Relief Mission costing RM50,000 with the help of Malaysia International Search & Rescue (MISAR). MISAR managed to mobilise trucks fully laden with boxes full of living essentials, hit the road in the wee hours of the morning and made their way straight for schools, homes and badly affected areas.

MISAR to the Rescue
By sunrise, MISAR’s rescue vehicles arrived at affected areas and cautiously ploughed through flood waters. Power supply was cut-off in many places by fallen trees and landslides, which also obstructed access and severed communications channels. The mission continued with the distribution of dry food, bottled water, pillows, blankets, buckets, toiletries, diapers and sanitary napkins to residents, some of whom were walking aimlessly in desperate search for help and supplies.

Tune Protect Emergency Flood Donation Drive & Flood Advisory
Back in Kuala Lumpur, Tune Protect staff raised funds internally for our colleagues affected by the floods after a few of them were relocated to Flood Relief Centers when the water levels reached dangerous levels. The Tune Protect Emergency Flood Advisory was also circulated to help employees cope with their circumstances safely. In addition to distributing living essentials, MISAR was also on standby to conduct ‘Search & Rescue’ missions while on location. Fortunately, the rain stopped, the water began receding slowly and the situation improved with time.

In tune with that, Tune Protect paid tribute to St. John Ambulance of Malaysia (SJAM) for its tireless contribution to the Malaysian society.

They also come to the rescue to assist in floods, fires, landslides, road traffic crashes,plane crashes and other calamities. Members of SJAM are unsung heroes who go beyond the call of duty to not only provide emergency first aid and 24- hour emergency ambulance services, but also haemodialysis treatment and home nursing care services.

Honouring 200 Long-Service Members
Tune Protect celebrated Malaysia Day 2016 by honouring 200 long-serving members of the SJAM with RM10 million worth of Personal Accident protection covering medical expenses following accidents, hospital income allowances, as well as allowances in cases of permanent disablement, accidental death and bereavement.
