The 4 pillars are Health, Sport, Education, and Disaster Relief. The first pillar, and probably our most extensive, is Health. Here blood donation, corrective surgery for children with cleft lips and palate, donation of water purification system and equipment, and Hepatitis B Virus vaccine efforts are making a very real contribution to the well-being of our fellow countrymen. The next, Sport, is similar to Health: people that take part in sports are happier and healthier, and live better lives, also by supporting in sports activities for youth helps them develop their health, morale and team spirit after having chance to exchange culture and custom. Education is a benefit that everyone recognizes: everyone benefits when a person learns. MBL has donated to schools, donated an entire library, supplied computers for schools, school furniture and supported Monastic Education Center with note books, food stuff regularly. Finally, Disaster Relief has clear benefits, and after all, who doesn’t want to help when we see people
suffering from some unforeseen disaster? Floods, fires, or any other natural disaster leaves people in need. MBL is proud to donate and coordinate delivery of our and other people’s donations to devastated locations, or to agencies that can distribute them where needed.
The work is volunteer led, with member of HR and the CSR team managing logistics, safety, and material. They plan events out a year in advance, with monthly implementations, and manages employee and extern. The team also manages announcements, both within and outside of the company, as the public of usually invited to participate in MBL CSR activities.
The area of health in particular requires careful safety management to ensure blood draw materials are sterile and properly handled and disposed of.
CSR activities are promoted under the “Myanmar Care” brand identified with MBL - “Building a strong legacy for now and the future”. This program serves 3 purposes: it is a public image building brand, builds morale and company pride in our employees, and demonstrates clearly MBL’s commitment to its Vision, Mission, Values statement, bolstering the corporate culture than underlies so much of what MBL stands for.
