“Even more volunteers have signed up for our second clean-up campaign following our successful first nationwide effort earlier this year, an inspiring display of commitment from our employees and members of the public around the country. As the largest telecommunications operator in Myanmar, we were able to assemble more than 6,000 MPT staff and volunteers from public and generate even greater public involvement for this massive undertaking to help revitalize the Myanmar’s public and prominent community spaces. Certain places and landmarks central to the daily lives of many, are marred by undesirable actions such as littering and spitting. Not only do they spoil otherwise beautiful locations, they are also detrimental to health due to the resulting unsanitary conditions. That is why we want to also highlight the importance of maintaining clean and hygienic spaces for everyone,” said Mr. Yoshiaki Benino, Chief Operating Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.
“Keeping Myanmar in our hearts, we are very proud to not only be providing enriching services but also to engage in activities that help improve the lives of those in its vibrant communities, joining hands with the regional government, local non-governmental organizations and social groups as the only operator involved on a nationwide scale in this way. We hope to see a good turnout on what should be a great day of cleaning up!” he added.
The nationwide cleanup campaign is a unique initiative amongst the country’s operators, with MPT able to mobilize the largest staff of passionate employees across the country whilst inspiring more people in various states and regions in total of more than 6,000 to do more for their communities. Through this effort, more can be done to uplift and preserve their environment. It is beneficial for society economically and socially in the long-term, in line with MPT’s overall aim to benefit the country through its three key CSR pillars namely; health, education and business incubation. With a heightened awareness on preserving a healthy environment, it helps prevent harmful effects to health and improves the quality of life, especially for future generations.
