About Hope for Our Children Campaign

The Hope for Our Children Campaign is a collaboration between the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) and Courts Malaysia (Courts). The campaign aims to engender understanding that cancer can be prevented by making conscious decisions about the life that we lead.

The campaign tagline, Cancer Prevention Begins with a Healthy Lifestyle also aims to enlist the support of children by empowering them with the knowledge that healthy lifestyle habits adopted early in life can make a positive difference in reducing the risk of cancer later in life. Simple steps like applying sunblock, avoiding smoking and second-hand smoke, eating more

fresh fruits and vegetables, and avoiding processed food help to prevent cancer and other chronic diseases as well.

In support of the campaign, images captured by premier photographer Kid Chan, show the moments shared between cancer survivors and their family members and sending the message that cancer does not signify the end of lifes journey. There is a high rate of survival for cancer patients especially when detected early.

These images will be displayed on donation boxes, postcards, posters and buntings distributed at all Courts 50 stores nationwide, and Walk for Hope Walkathons will also be organized at selected Courts retail outlets for fund-raising and as a way to engage members of the public. The campaign will culminate in a charity dinner event to raise more funds for the cause the donations will help to fund more NCSM activities including the second stage of the campaign which includes a school outreach programme. The school outreach programme, which will kick off in 2011, hopes to increase awareness among students that healthy lifestyle habits can help prevent cancer while providing recognition for active student clubs.

Rumah Ceriaku- Shopping day at Bata

A total of 270 children from seven adopted homes joined the Bata 'sojourn', which was organized by Courts' seven Klang Valley outlets.

Make a date -to- donate


With the school holidays and the festive season being the most challenging periods to stock up on blood, the National Blood Bank was delighted when more than 40 Courts Berhad (Courts ) associates answered the call to donate blood on December 6th 2005.

Courts is one of the NBB's staunchest supporters. To date, we have jointly organized five blood drives, all of which have been successful as the Company always makes it easy and convenient for our staff from the Klang Valley stores and warehouses to participate.

Blind leading the blind


Another CSR project that saw Courts' involvement is the Lions Club Sight First Project helmed by the Petaling Jaya Lions Club. Besides financial assistance, Courts rallied a team to participate in the 'Blind leading the blind' charity walk held in early March 2005. The Lions Club Sight First Project provides financial assistance to defray the surgery costs for needy patients who require urgent cataract and other sight impairment surgery.

In recognition of Courts' contributions, the Company was presented the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award; the highest form of recognition conferred by the foundation, which honours Melvin Jones, the founder of Lions Club International.
