UTAR Hospital will receive vital support to further its mission of providing quality healthcare services and nurturing future healthcare professionals.
HEINEKEN Malaysia, in collaboration with Tiger Chinese Education Charity Concert (Tiger CECC), successfully hosted the Tiger Chinese Education Charity Concert, raising an impressive amount of RM3.9 million for UTAR Hospital in Kampar, Perak.
The charity concert, held at the HGH Convention Centre in Sentul, marked a significant milestone as the program extended its support beyond schools to a hospital for the first time.
This year, Tiger CECC expanded its reach to UTAR Hospital, to enhance its facilities and amenities.
The funds raised from the concert will contribute towards the development of UTAR Hospital, benefiting both the local communities and medical students.
As a not-for-profit private university, UTAR Hospital strives to provide affordable medical services to the community in Kampar and surrounding areas.
The contribution from Tiger CECC will bolster the hospital’s outpatient and in-patient treatment facilities, diagnostics, and medical and mental health support.
Additionally, it will enrich the hands-on training, education, and research opportunities for UTAR’s medical students and future healthcare professionals.
The Tiger CECC charity concert received an overwhelming response, with over 1,000 attendees filling 64 tables at the HGH Convention Centre.
