October and November were busy months for Liter of Light, thanks to Cummins‘ annual CSR initiative which targeted to lift up the lives of no less than 1,000 Orang Asli living in Peninsular Malaysia as well as in Borneo, East Malaysia. Here is an overview of the impact created by Cummins through Liter of Light Malaysia.
Cummins – Peninsular Build
Build: 19 October 2018
Installation: 27 October 2018
Villages: Kampung Batu 21, Cameron Highlands & Kampung Mentelong, Kuala Rompin
Cummins – Borneo Build
Build: 23 November 2018
Installation: 30 November 2018
Villages: Kg Nagga Cheling, Kanowit & Kg Serundung Laut, Tawau
Reaching the remote villages of Kampung Nagga Cheling and Kampung Serundung was a bit of a logistic challenge, as it involved taking a 2-hour boat ride to get to each of the villages. None of the 37 volunteers were discouraged by this, however, as they crossed the rivers to install a total of 120 solar powered lights in two villages.
