Ashvin Valiram, Executive Director of Swiss Watch Gallery said, “We would not have come this far without the support of our brand partners, business partners and our customers. As such, we felt it only apt to play our part in giving back to society as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.
While Swiss Watch Gallery also donated to raise the amount, we also are thankful to our brand partners for generously providing the exquisite watches and accessories for auction Ulysse Nardin, IWC, Graham, Omega, Montblanc, Jaeger LeCoultre and Breguet. A special thank you also goes out to our loyal customers who bid generously.
The beneficiaries of the charities include Desa Amal Jireh, MAKNA, Montfort Boys Town, Shelter Home, The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM), Women’s Aid Organisation. Each organisation will receive MYR 50,000 in cash. Each of the charities were carefully selected as it represented different pillars which included care, development and nurturing for children, women, the elderly and those with special needs.
While Swiss Watch Gallery continues to undertake a robust expansion plan, philanthropy lies in the heart of the organisation. Swiss Watch Gallery’s philanthropic efforts are focused in line with the objective of business continuity and sustainability, recognising the importance to have a shared value creation to contribute positively to society. Swiss Watch Gallery is confident that the selected charities will continue the remarkable work they are currently doing in continuing to strive for the betterment for those in need.
