Improving the social economic condition and delivering a brighter future where ever Gamuda projects extend.
In partnership with the Epic Homes organisation, Gamuda gathers a group of volunteers annually to build new homes for identified indigenious families in a conscious effort to help bridge the gap between urban and rural divide in Malaysia. The initiative offers the opportunity for Gamuda employees to develop genuine relationships with the families and discover how the hard work that they put in will eventually result in a home these family will grow and learn in.
In 2015 a group of 36 Gamuda employees set off to an Orang Asli (indigenious) village in Kampung Ulu Geruntum, Gopeng Perak on a 3-day mission to build a new home for a couple who had just welcomed a new member to the family. The three days spent in the indigenous village proved to be a meaningful experience for the volunteers. Despite the arduous work of building a house in such a short time, all volunteers enjoyed the sense of satisfaction upon accomplishing a house building job.
A series of relief interventions to badly affected communities in Malaysia whenever possible.
In January 2015, when the east coast states of Pahang and Kelantan were struck by floods, Gamuda carried out a series of relief interventions which included raising funds, delivery of essentials such as water, food and clothes, providing heavy machinery to help with the cleaning up and deploying up to 170 volunteers to the heavily affected areas to help the flood victims with their homes and belongings.
Plant a tree for free
Encouraging more Gamudians to make a conscious effort in conserving the environment, Gamuda organised tree planting day with the support of Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam in November 2015. More than 250 employees and family members participated on the day and over 1,000 trees were planted in the park of Taman Tasik Kota Kemuning.
