Dijaya Tropicana Foundation, a newly set-up charity organisation by Dijaya Corp Bhd, recently donated RM50,000 to the Buddhist Gem Fellowship Malaysia to assist in the construction of a new building.

"The Buddhist Gem Fellowship Malaysia provides informed and coherent perspectives on matters that impact on the community and contribue towards the betterment of community. Dijaya Tropicana Foundation is pleased to contribute towards building a multi-racial, multi-religious and plural Malaysian society," said Dijaya deputy managing director Dickson Tan, when presenting the cheque to Buddhist Gem Fellowship Malaysia president Datuk Dr Victor Wee.

The Buddhist Gem Fellowship Malaysia was established in 1989 to promote the growth of Buddhism and to create a better world for all living things. This non-profit, non-governmental organisation nurtures Dhamma-inspired Buddhist leaders to contribute towards the well-being and development of the Buddhist community.

Beginning this year, the Buddhist Gem Fellowship Malaysia has embarked on a fund-raising drive to raise construction funds for a purpose-built building. The new building will have expanded facilities to reach a larger Buddhist community with its education and development programmes for all age groups.

Founded by Dijaya group CEO Tan Sri Danny Tan Chee Sing, Dijaya Tropicana Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of the under-privileged communities through the provision of funding and implementation of other charitable initiatives. It aims to provide assistance by supporting health, education and other non-profit organisations.
