KUALA LUMPUR, July 26 2010 (Bernama) -- Corporate citizens can play a more active role in helping the government eradicate hardcore poverty in the country through corporate social responsibility initiatives, said the prime minister's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

She said through the help rendered, be it in the form of knowledge or material, it would at least help orphans and the less fortunate seek education and skills to come out of the poverty trap.

"I believe by instilling a love for knowledge and education, they will be able to change the fortunes of their families in future.

"This has been proven as many of them have gone on to chase their dreams of attaining higher education and equipped themselves with degrees for a brighter future," she said when launching Utusan Melayu Veterans Club's humanitarian fund here Monday night.

Rosmah said she hoped the club's noble effort to help orphans to gain an education through the fund would receive support from the corporate world.

She added that such an effort was in line with the 1Malaysia concept which wanted to ensure each and every Malaysian child received an education to secure his or her future.

Among those who were present were the club's president Datuk Raja Ahmad Niza Raja Ismail, Utusan Melayu Group executive chairman Tan Sri Hashim Ahmad Makaruddin, former Bernama chairman Tan Sri Mazlan Nordin and Glomac Corporation executive chairman, Tan Sri FD Mansor.
