Atlas Copco Malaysia and Singapore , in collaboration with Global Peace Foundation Malaysia, held the inauguration of the Water for All projects in Kg. Sungai Gayung and Kg. Gantung Geriang. The event took place at Kg. Sungai Gayung in Pahang, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly-built solar water pump source, with the presence of the heads of both villages.
Horst Wasel, Vice President Holding, SEA & Oceania said, "Access to clean water is a
basic human right, and it is heartening to see organisations like Global Peace Foundation
and Atlas Copco Malaysia and Singapore come together to make it a reality for the people
"This Water for All project is a significant step towards ensuring that every person
in the region has access to safe and clean drinking water, and it will go a long way in
improving the health and well-being of the local communities. I am proud to be a part of
this inauguration ceremony and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the
lives of the people of Pahang."
The Water for All programme aims to provide sustainable solutions for water and sanitation,
creating a positive impact on the health and well-being of communities worldwide. Villages in the region lacked basic facilities such as proper bathrooms, piping, and washrooms, which put their health and safety at risk. However, rather than simply providing these facilities, the project focused on empowering the villagers by teaching them how to build and maintain the facilities
The event also provided an opportunity for attendees to engage with villagers and students who received laptops as part of the project.
"We are thrilled to see the impact of our project in empowering the villagers by providing them with the necessary skills and knowledge to build and maintain essential facilities such as toilets, washrooms, and solar water pumps," commented Mr Khalid Shaikh, General Manager - Compressor Technique for Atlas Copco Malaysia and Singapore.
"By taking this approach, we not only provided them with access to clean water but also ensured that they could sustain these facilities for years to come. At Atlas Copco Malaysia and Singapore, we believe that sustainable solutions require community empowerment, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to support initiatives that create a lasting positive impact in the communities where we operate.”
This project was a significant step towards ensuring that all members of the community had
access to the basic necessities required for a healthy and dignified life. Atlas Copco Malaysia
and Singapore are proud to be a part of this initiative and look forward to continuing their
efforts to ensure that everyone has access to clean water and sanitation, regardless of their
location or circumstances.
