As a socially responsible investor and operator, M&AOSB finds ways to identify the real needs of the community and fulfill them sustainably and efficiently. One of the highlights of M&AOSB CSR Program for the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 was the donation of a tricycle hearse, a funeral van gifted to Danakuthala Free Funeral Service Association in Nga Yoke Kaung Town.
Danakuthala is a well-organized association that provides free funeral services to the community in Nga Yoke Kaung Town. Due to the lack of many facilities with a hearse being one, they had faced many difficulties when transporting the deceased to the crematory or burial site. With the current pandemic, it became a necessity, thus the humble request from the organization for a hearse. After careful review and evaluation, M&AOSB decided to extend the donation of a tricycle hearse, contributing MMK 4.5 million on 16 June 2021. It was a much-needed contribution for the community in times like this. The acknowledgment and letter of appreciation were sent to the M&AOSB by the organization, leaving a positive footprint by M&AOSB in the community where we operate.
U Myint Aung, the treasurer of Danakuthala Free Funeral Service Association, said, “In the past, as there was no hearse in town and so, we needed about four to six people to carry a dead body on a stretcher for transporting. We were so worried about slipping and falling, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak that is so contagious. Because of M&AOSB’s tricycle hearse donation, we are now more at ease, mentally and physically, when conveying the deceased to the burial site. The hearse is so needed in our community, especially during the pandemic. On behalf of the association, I would like to thank the company that donated the vehicle and we look forward to helping out the local community in many ways.”
M&AOSB is always delighted to contribute towards improving essential public services and the community where the business operates.
