In early September, Yellow House, a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of marginalised groups, launched a fundraising event at their premise located in Ampang. The event was attended by the Founder and President of Yellow House, Ms. Shyam Priah, and YTL Foundation Programme Director Dato’ Kathleen Chew, alongside Yellow House partners, friends, and members of the media.
The air was filled with anticipation as Shyam began the event by sharing details about Yellow House’s partnership with YTL Foundation and YTL Construction. In her address, she spoke about the potential for scaling up and launching new projects in the renovated space, an opportunity that the current premises could not accommodate. Dato’ Kathleen shared how a series of events led to the collaboration with Yellow House.
Following a simple officiation of the campaign, guests embarked on a tour of the house to observe its existing state before the renovation commences, all while indulging in refreshments prepared by Shyam and her team.
YTL Construction, the Design and Construction partner, brought an innovative idea to the table by incorporating bamboo into Yellow House’s renovation. This decision not only reflects eco-friendliness but also infuses a natural, aesthetic touch into the initiative. The commitment to creating sustainable changes in the lives of the underserved is evident through the transformation of Yellow House. The renovation, with eco-friendly bamboo, aims to provide shelter, generate work opportunities, and embrace an environmentally conscious approach.
YTL Foundation has contributed RM50,000 to initiate the fundraising campaign, matching the RM50,000 already raised by Yellow House. The renovation work for Yellow House is currently underway, with an estimated cost of RM275,000, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. YTL Construction also organised a Yellow House Day: Charity Bazaar recently and successfully raised close to RM 5,000.00 towards the renovation cost. To date, Yellow House KL has raised a total of RM 106,235,58.00.
