THE Aeon Mesra programme which invites children from underprivileged families to shop for clothes and gifts was held at 10 Aeon malls, culminating in a celebration at Aeon Big Kepong. This ongoing community activity which was initiated by Aeon more than 15 years ago, has seen thousands of children shop with Aeon employees and volunteers during festive seasons nationwide. This Chinese New Year, the anchor event was hosted by Aeon Big Kepong where more than 100 children along with 350 others from participating outlets enjoyed a morning with Aeon. Each child was given RM200 to shop at one of the 10 outlets: Aeon Bukit Indah; Bukit Tinggi; Cheras Selatan; Ipoh Station18; Seremban 2; and Aeon Big at Kepong; Batu Pahat; Falim, Ipoh; Puchong Utama; and Wangsa Maju. In addition to the shopping opportunity, the children were also given a RM50 ang pow and treated to a lion dance and yee sang lunch. “This is one of Aeon’s favourite community programmes. As ours is a family-oriented business, our employees, partners and volunteers look forward to participating in our Aeon Mesra events at each festive season where there is much happiness and laughter all around. “It is heart-warming to see children of all ages excited and thrilled when shopping for themselves and their loved ones and we hope that we will be able to continue to do this for as many children as we can in the future,” said Malaysian Aeon Foundation president Datin Yasmin Merican. Together with Yasmin and members of the foundation, the event at Aeon Big Kepong was also attended by Aeon Credit Service Bhd chairman Ng Eng Keat, board of directors members Datin Khoo Pek Ling and Rashidah Abu Bakar, Aeon Big deputy managing director Hiroshi Watabe and Kumpulan Voir Sdn Bhd managing director Ham Hon Kit who represented Aeon’s business partners.
