Jalinan Kasih Budi

Upskilling our Group-wide employees through training courses to deliver disaster, emergency and humanitarian relief to at-risk communities and enable them to give back to society.

Jalinan Kasih Budi x Malaysian
Relief Agency x Mabul Island

Aims at improving the quality of life for the Pulau Mabul community in Semporna, Sabah, through basic medical check-ups and community engagements.

This 3D2N initiative was carried out in collaboration with the Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA), and supported by AxiataCares volunteers who assisted in the implementation of the three-pronged community engagement programme.

The initiative supported the creation of a sustainable future for the Pulau Mabul community by promoting healthcare and community development.

Axiata Foundation x Malaysian Relief Agency: Training for AxiataCares Volunteers

Empowers AxiataCares volunteers (ACV) by building on their talents, skills and motivations, while simultaneously promoting and encouraging volunteerism among Axiata employees and the general public.

From July to December 2022, five training sessions on disaster, emergency and humanitarian relief were held with 105 ACVs, covering topics such as basic sign language, VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity), tautan kasih, basic life support and disaster preparedness. The training, conducted by the Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA), had a significant impact on the ACVs, with 20 volunteers who dedicated more than 10 hours of their time receiving Best Volunteers Awards.

As we continue to train more ACVs and expand our knowledge base in this crucial intervention area, we hope to continue encouraging more individuals to engage in volunteerism, thereby making a positive difference in the lives of those in need.

Jalinan Kasih Budi x Malaysian Relief Agency: Flood Relief Project

Provides emergency aid to flood-affected individuals and families, as well as post-flood assistance, to alleviate their immediate struggles and help them navigate through challenging times.

In response to the devastating floods in Hulu Dungun, Terengganu, and Jeli, Kelantan, in March 2022, Axiata Foundation and the Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA) distributed 300 food packs, 400 survival kits and 100 hygiene kits to selected families that were displaced. A total of 3,600 beneficiaries benefited from this.

By standing by to support flood victims and offer assistance - in the form of provisions, essential items and personal care products - we aim to contribute to their long-term recovery and help them regain stability in their lives.

Jalinan Kasih Budi x MERCY: Continuous Humanitarian Development Nexus Talk

Enhances awareness and understanding of the Humanitarian Development Nexus (HDN) agenda among our employees and NGO partners, especially regarding cross-sector collaboration, to bolster humanitarian aid and relief efforts.

In November 2022, we conducted a one-hour session on HDN, led by MERCY Malaysia’s Executive Director, Pn. Shareen Shariza Dato’ Abdul Ghani. The talk provided 100 Axiata staff and our NGO colleagues with insights into contemporary and significant trends within the humanitarian-developmental sector that can be leveraged to better respond to both immediate needs and systemic causes of vulnerabilities faced by crisis-hit communities.

In transforming short-term humanitarian responses into more meaningful, longer-term development solutions, we aspire to make a lasting impact on the lives of affected communities and contribute to sustainable development.

Jalinan Kasih Budi x MERCY: WASH Programme (Kampung Long Tuyo & Kg Ruan Tekubung, Lawas, Sarawak)

Jalinan Kasih Budi x MERCY: WASH Programme (Kampung Long Tuyo & Kg Ruan Tekubung, Lawas, Sarawak)

Enhances access to sustainable, safe and clean water for targeted poor and vulnerable communities to improve their overall health.

By providing and instilling sustainable, long-lasting WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) practices among poor, rural and underdeveloped communities, we aim to reduce water and sanitation-related diseases. This ongoing hygiene education initiative is expected to benefit 500 villagers in Kampung Long Tuyo and Kg Ruan Tekubung, Lawas, Sarawak, upon completion.

By successfully implementing the WASH programme, we hope to see a decrease in the spread of noncommunicable diseases and an improvement in overall community health, while significantly contributing to the socioeconomic status of the target communities.
