A TIME TO GIVE THANKS AND VOLUNTEER WITH THE COMMUNITY OF DOVENBY
18 March 2014, Sungai Siput, Perak - Employees of Lafarge Malaysia Berhad (Lafarge) participated in Sri Maha Mariamman Temple's annual celebration by contributing their time and effort. Lafarge also took the opportunity to make a small cash donation towards the celebration.
The employees from Lafarge's Kanthan Plant located in Chemor set up a refreshment counter to offer drinks and snacks to devotees throughout the celebration. In addition, the employees installed a portable water browser to wet the surface of the road as a means to provide some soothing comfort to the devotees who walked bare-footed to perform their vows.
Sekar Kaliannan, Plant Manager, Kanthan Plant, who represented Lafarge, also presented a donation of RM1,000 towards the temple's activities.
"Lafarge Malaysia first set-up its cement plant in Kanthan in 1964 and this year marks our 50th year in operation.
