Nestlé Volunteers Reach Out to Autistic Children

In conjunction with Autism Awareness Month in April, NestlĂ© Malaysia recently collaborated with the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) and played host to 50 children for a telematch session, as part of NestlĂ©’s ‘Reaching Out to Community and Kids’ (ROCKS) Employee Volunteer Programme.

Apart from engaging with the kids in a fun and interactive manner, the telematch session was organised to provide with children with an experiential learning experience. The eventful morning started out with a warm-up senamrobik session for both the kids and Nestlé volunteers, fondly known as ROCKers. They then moved on to the highlight of the day, the telematch, which saw the children taking part in a variety of fun activities such as musical chairs and ball games.

Ms Nirmalah Thurai, Executive Director of Group Corporate Affairs, NestlĂ© Malaysia, said, “As a company which advocates an inclusive and diverse culture, we were pleased to collaborate with NASOM to organise a day of fun for these children and their families. This is one of the ways in which we contribute to our global ambition to help 50 million children across the world lead healthier lives, as the activities organised helped to nurture valuable skills among the children, such as sensory integration, communication and social interaction. This initiative also enabled us to help raise public awareness and increase sensitivity towards supporting the needs of the autistic community.”

Ms Felina Feisol, Chairman of NASOM, added, “It is heartening to see a leading company such as NestlĂ© Malaysia taking the time and effort to support our cause. The kids had a fantastic time interacting with the NestlĂ© ROCKers and this activity also supported their personal development, communication skills and confidence. We hope to continue this partnership with NestlĂ© Malaysia to raise more awareness amongst Malaysians.”

In addition to the telematch session, Nestlé Malaysia contributed RM13,000 worth of items for the NASOM centre for their administrative needs, including laminating machines, white boards and an LCD projector. They also donated products such as MILO, NESTUM and Nestlé breakfast cereals.
