In addition to the positive sales results, January has been an eventful month for UMW Toyota Motor. Earlier in the month, the mobility leader partnered with Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor to extend a hand to Malaysians affected by the flood.  Through its ‘Back On Your Feet’ Programme, the company contributed RM10,000 to Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Lui for the school’s repairs of its partially damaged premise from the flood. UMW Toyota Motor also donated essential home appliances to the affected community in Sungai Lui such as rice cookers, kettles and gas stoves.

“UMW Toyota Motor endeavours to propel society forward by empowering people beyond the road. We are glad to have been given the opportunity to partner with Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor to give back to the community we operate in and help them get back on their feet during these trying times,” he added.
