VALE DISTRIBUTES EDUCATIONAL MAGAZINES TO CHILDREN OF FRONTLINERS

Distribution of Kuntum Magazines to benefit 5,150 children in Manjung

MANJUNG, August 20 – Vale in Malaysia extends its support for the communities of Manjung by donating copies of the ‘Kuntum’ educational magazine to 5,150 children. The distribution is a continuation of Vale’s ‘Kome Hero Kami’ frontliners appreciation initiative, which was launched in May this year. 5,000 of the magazines will be distributed to the children of frontliners in Manjung, while the remaining 150 will be sent out to various orphanages in the district.

Rodrigo Ribeiro de Araújo, CEO of Vale in Malaysia said: “The pandemic has affected the learning journey of many children in Manjung, with schools having to be conducted on virtual platforms. With these magazines, filled with fun and interactive content, we hope Manjung’s children can continue to learn and expand their knowledge at home”.

‘Kuntum’ is one of Malaysia’s most established education magazine. The dual-language (Malay-English) magazine has been recognized by the Ministry of Education for its educational content, which spans topics such as STEM, Mathematics, and linguistics.

“The distribution of ‘Kuntum’ magazines will keep these children occupied and entertained at home, which is important during the pandemic, as most of their parents spend long hours working on the frontline every day.”

“Vale recognizes the important role that frontliners are playing in Malaysia’s pandemic recovery journey. Together, we will rise from the pandemic ber and more resilient,” Rodrigo concluded.
