KUALA LUMPUR, 18, September 2019 — Chubb announced today that it had recently organized a book drive in Malaysia for children of Rumah Safiyyah – a shelter home that provides residential care and basic homeschooling for orphans and stateless children aged between 7 and 18 years old. The activity is part of its continued social responsibility and commitment to give back to the local community.

Through the generosity of Chubb employees, the book drive led to over 300 books being collected, ranging from fictional and non-fictional titles, dictionaries and encyclopedias. The books were sent to the home for the children to enjoy and have easy access to a wide selection of reading materials.

In addition, 20 Chubb employees visited the home to refurbish its existing makeshift library with brand new book shelves, furniture and carpets. They also organized activities to further cultivate the love of reading among the children. These activities included a group reading session, a story-telling session, sing-alongs and an origami bookmark crafting session.

“Reading boosts literacy, which opens the door to a myriad of opportunities in life. We hope this better equipped library will ignite a passion for reading in the children of Rumah Safiyyah and help support their literacy development for a brighter future ahead,” said Steve Crouch, Country President for Chubb in Malaysia. He added, “Being a responsible corporate citizen is an integral part of Chubb’s culture. This initiative complements our philanthropic objectives and commitment to make positive contributions to the communities in which we live and operate.”
