Kuala Lumpur, 9 September 2022 – MITSUBISHI MOTORS MALAYSIA (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, recently contributed a Triton 4×4 pick-up truck to the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM), a non-profit organization (NGO) established in 1966 providing extensive range of cancer services and support to people affected by cancer.
The Triton will be used by NCSM to travel to rural communities, especially those in poor
urban areas, and suburban villages around Malaysia that have little or no access to screening facilities.
“Mitsubishi Motors supports NCSM’s noble efforts in carrying out their mission to raise public awareness on cancer prevention, screening, and early detection. In line with our CSR vision ‘Inspiring Lives Today for a Greater Future’, we know that success isn’t solely measured by the vehicles we put on the road, but also by the lives we enrich along the way. As part of a responsible Malaysian society, we are pleased to fulfil our CSR by utilizing the innovative strength of our 4x4s for the greater improvement of society,” said Shinya Ikeda, CEO of MMM.
He added, “Over the years, the award-winning Triton pick-up truck has passed many endurance tests and has been put through the harshest road conditions. We hope that the Triton will gain NCSM access to many places and assist as many people as possible.”
Financed entirely by voluntary contributions from the public, NCSM provides holistic cancer
support to patients and caregivers in understanding and dealing with cancer in various
phases, through its Cancer and Health Screening Clinic, Nuclear Medicine Centre,
Resource and Wellness Centre, the Adults’ Home of Hope, and Children’s Home of Hope.
Backed by its philosophy to “Educate, Care and Support”, NCSM aims to decrease the
incidence of cancer, and also to increase the accessibility of cancer services
in Malaysia by providing advanced facilities in screening and diagnosis.
