Bright and sunny day as L’OCCITANE made its visit to the Malaysian Association for the Blind (MAB)’s Kinta Valley Center in Ipoh, Perak in conjunction with L’OCCITANE Malaysia’s signature fundraising campaign, where they have been working together with MAB to raise funds to improve the lives of the visually-impaired in Malaysia.  


2014 marks the 5th year of L’OCCITANE Malaysia’s support towards MAB. Since 2009, L’OCCITANE has been working closely with MAB, staying true to the essence of the brand’s global charity foundation, L’OCCITANE Foundation, which is dedicated to fighting avoidable blindness in developing countries. More than 300 million people in the world are blind or visually-impaired, but in fact a staggering 80% of blindness is avoidable.

Over the previous years, L’OCCITANE Malaysia has successfully raised over RM166,258 on behalf of MAB. This year, the charity fundraising drive was held from November 2013 to February 2014, where members of the public could purchase the limited-edition collectible Pure Mini Shea Butter (RM33) to contribute their part. Thanks to the dedication of the L’OCCITANE Malaysia retail team, a total of 1,250 pieces of Pure Mini Shea Butter were sold, bringing the total amount of funds raised to RM40,000; channeled to the two blind associations with RM20,000 respectively.

This year also marks a new beginning for L’OCCITANE Malaysia as they have branched out their reach to help St. Nicholas’ Home in Penang. Founded in 1926, St. Nicholas Home is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation (NGO) dedicated to help blind and visually-impaired residents.
