Samsung volunteers shared Love & Care with the children from RPS Legap, Sungai Siput


Last July, Samsung Malaysia Electronics launched the Samsung Smart Community Center within the rural areas of RPS Legap of Sungai Siput, Perak. The mission was to ensure that the orang asli community would have the opportunity and access to Information & Community Technology (ICT) in this increasingly digitized world.


Over the weekend, Samsung continued its commitment to that community by treating 30 children and five teachers of the village to a day at Sunway Lost World of Tambun. Samsung’s mission this time was to continue encouraging a love for technology and to teach the infinite possibilities one can achieve through the super powerful Samsung Galaxy Note9 in a creative way.


“Setting up the Samsung Smart Community Center at RPS Legap was a huge success and is something we have been proud of. But we realize that fostering a learning environment through technology goes beyond that, hence this little activity over the weekend. We are positive that the children have learned that technology is not just a tool to play games, but is something that has the power to bring out their potentials,” said Yoonsoo Kim, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Throughout the fun day out, the children took part in various activities around the theme park, with challenges involving the Galaxy Note9. Each challenge was meant to highlight a particular feature of the productivity smartphone, such as Super Slow-mo, taking selfies and doodling with the S Pen, and the camera’s Live Focus.

The children were led by volunteers from Samsung and with their guidance, they were able to produce gorgeous pictures and videos of themselves, the animals of the zoo, and the theme park. Various prizes were prepared for the best performing teams as well, which were taken back to the village to be shared and enjoyed.

That aside, Samsung was also on a mission to instill love and care for the surrounding environment of RSP Legap. Samsung volunteers and residents of the village participated in a tree-planting activity, giving the village people a significantly greener environment to live in.

“While we wanted to show that technology is leading the way forward, we must also never forget the environment we live in. This tree-planting activity has impacted the village positively, but the most important thing about it is that it served as a reminder for all of us to care for the world we live in. I am proud of all participants and volunteers who participated in Samsung’s Love & Care program over the weekend and we look forward to more of this and giving back to the community,” added Mr. Kim.


Samsung Love & Care, previously known as Samsung’s Nanum Village initiative, has helped two orang asli villages through several activities over the last three years. The program commenced earlier in 2015 as part of Samsung’s local Corporate Citizenship efforts.
