TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) through its wholly owned subsidiary, TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd (TNB Genco), has contributed RM10,000 to each of the three families who were victims of the fire incident in Taman Seri 12, Kampung Batu 12 Kapar in the Klang district, Selangor on March 4, 2021.

TNB Genco MD Datuk Nor Azman Mufti (picture) said the contribution was a sign of the company’s sympathy and concern for local communities, especially those tested with challenges in the peak of the Covid19 pandemic.

“TNB is always sensitive to the communities around the areas where it operates.

“The fate of the victims must be helped, especially in the current challenging environment,” he said in a statement yesterday.

In a virtual meeting between TNB and the fire victims on July 9, Kapar MP Datuk Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid said the utility company’s assistance is evidence that corporate firms are taking responsibility for contributing their profit to the community.

“This contribution is timely taking into account the plight of the people in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially for the fire victims,” he said.

One of the fire victims, who only wanted to be known as Siti Atikah, expressed her gratitude for the significant contribution to finance the cost of repairing her damaged home.

“This contribution lifts my spirits, especially with the challenge of raising two young children,” she said.

Another victim, Abdul Muiz, said although only a portion of his house was affected by the fire, the assistance was very meaningful to him.

“Only the front of my house suffered damages, but they are quite severe.

“This contribution helps me a lot in financing the cost of repairing the house and I am very grateful to all parties, especially TNB who assisted us,” he said.
