Recently, EXIM Bank celebrated World Autism Awareness Day with a group of autistic children under the ‘Program Pendidikan Khas Integrasi’ at Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Batu. As part of their CSR initiative, a new reflexology garden was constructed to assist these special children in their daily therapeutic activities. President/CEO of EXIM Bank Norzilah Mohammed was present to officiate the event. The ceremony also consisted of a mock cheque presentation with the amount of RM10,000 for the school maintenance and a donation of books worth RM5,000 for the school library.
“With the installation of this reflexology garden within the school compound, the school will carry out daily therapy exercises for these special children for 20 minutes to improve the wellbeing and vitality of these children,” said Norzilah.
The day ended with the 240 children being treated to a scrumptious lunch by EXIM Bank’s management committee and teachers.
