Wheelchairs Giveaway from Tranglo, Dompet Dhuafa and Celcom
Ponorogo, Indonesia: In the third-quarter of 2017 saw Tranglo partnering with Celcom to channel part of its transactions to Dompet Dhuafa in a charity initiative to assist the disable in Ponorogo and Pancitan, East Jawa, Indonesia.
The joint initiative which led to the launch of ‘Smile Wheelchair’ on 22 August 2017, was a great success. Where Tranglo’s Marketing Manager, Vanessa Lu handed over 45 brand new wheelchairs to the disabled recipients from over 11 districts of Ponorogo and Pancitan.
This was all made possible through a 45-day campaign whereby within this period every successful transfer to Indonesia completed, Celcom donated 5.5% of the transaction amount to Dompet Dhuafa. On top of being the enabler of such transactions, Tranglo also donated an extra RM10,000 making the total collected sum amounting to RM46,000.
At the end of this 45-day campaign, we managed to collect enough to purchase 45 brand new wheelchairs for the disabled community in this impoverished part of the community. The individuals were carefully selected and vetted through across 11 districts from neighbouring areas. Which comprised of those with various disabilities spanning across a wide range age group.
