Rosmah Calls On Muslim Community To Create More Philanthropists | 24/08/2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 24 2010 (Bernama) -- Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of the prime minister, on Tuesday called on the Muslim community in the country to create more philanthropists from among its entrepreneurs if it wanted to be dynamic and progressive.

She said such a culture had for long been the way of life of the corporate people in the United States.

The readiness of the rich personalities and corporate companies in the United States to share their wealth derived from their business empires had helped greatly to spur that country into the largest economic power today, she said.

Efforts to establish philanthropy among entrepreneurs should spur Muslim entrepreneurs to set aside a percentage of their business profits to be returned to the community which had helped to drive their business success, she said at the breaking of the fast with orphans and poor children at an event organised by Yayasan Harapan Kanak-kanak Malaysia (YHKM) and Royale Chulan Hotel, here.

"The Muslim community in Malaysia should be encouraged to make philanthropy a solution to the various problems of the community, in terms of religion, welfare, education and social," she said.

Rosmah said the Muslim community could take a cue from the success of other communities in developing itself by using the wealth gained to provide the social infrastructure required to spur the community to greater heights, especially in education.

At the event, Rosmah presented aid and Aidilfitri goodies to the inmates of seven orphanages, namely Asrama Darul Falah, Good Samaritan Home Klang, Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti (PDK) Selayang, Rumah Anak Yatim dan Saudara Baru Shifa', Rumah Hope Petaling Jaya, Rumah Nur Salam and Rumah Vivekananda Negeri Sembilan.
