Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) donated five hearse vans to selected mosques and suraus in the Peninsula worth almost RM123,000 this year to fulfill the company's social responsibility to the community.

The contribution is a manifestation of the utility company's concern to facilitate the management of the remains of the Muslim community in areas in need, in line with the practice of the company's core values.

Since 2016, TNB has spent almost RM2.6 million to repair and modify 48 vans, lorries and four-wheel drives (4X4) to be donated to mosques and suraus, as well as non-governmental organizations in need.

TNB President / Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan said, TNB has always been generous to share prosperity with the community as a sign of gratitude for the blessings obtained.

“Through social responsibility efforts that include education, socio-economic development and environmental sustainability, TNB continues to build a bridge of friendship with the community through donations today.

"It is hoped that with the presence of this hearse, it can help launch the management of the remains and foster the spirit of cooperation of the community that receives its benefits."

Also present were TNB Chief Corporate Officer, Datuk Wira Roslan Ab Rahman and Managing Director of TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd cum President of TNB Islamic Workers Welfare Association, Dato 'Nor Azman Mufti.
