Hengyuan shares Hari Raya cheer with fenceline community

Celebration held in conjunction with 3 million man-hours without lost time injuries since July 2016

Port Dickson, 3 July 2018 -- Regional major oil-refining company Hengyuan Refining Company Berhad held a Hari Raya open house on 30th June 2018 together with the local community of Port Dickson in the spirit of fostering a stronger communal bond.

The Hari Raya open house was held at Hengyuan Port Dickson refinery and attended over 600 people comprising Hengyuan staff, fenceline communities and local authorities. This event also saw the entire fenceline community invited for the first time, instead of just key representatives with hope to build long lasting relationships.

During the event, the Company celebrated its recent major safety milestone of achieving 3 million consecutive man-hours without lost time injuries since July 2016. This milestone showcases Hengyuan's devotion in safeguarding employee safety by eliminating unsafe conditions, behaviours and worker injuries on-site.

Hengyuan's Hari Raya open house was attended by Y.B. Dr. Mohd Rafie bin Ab. Malek, Negeri Sembilan State Exco of Investment, Industrial, Entrepreneurship & Education, Y.B. Dato' Danyal Balagopal, Port Dickson Member of Parliament and Y.B. Ravi A/L Munusamy, Deputy Negeri Sembilan State Speaker.

Mr.David Keat, Chief Executive Officer, Hengyuan Refining Company Berhad:

"As good corporate citizens, we have invited not only our staff and local authorities to our Hari Raya open house, but also the fenceline community because we wanted to include everyone, from young to old in the Raya cheer. This celebration event is the highlight of our month-long Ramadhan community outreach program which aims to strengthen and deepen our relationship with the local community, as well as make a positive impact in their lives.

We strive to create avenues to celebrate similarities and common interests for all by having a wide range of Hari Raya delicacies and performances, in the spirit of diversity and embracing one another.

Moving forward, we will continue our corporate conscious efforts to host festivities such as this and conduct more outreach programs to ensure the local community are able to constantly engage and prosper together with us."


While attendees feasted themselves on the sumptuous spread, they were also feted by special performances including from Hengyuan's Chief Executive Officer Mr. David Keat playing guitar and being accompanied by Hengyuan staff on vocals.

 The Hari Raya open house was the perfect culmination of local community outreach events during Ramadhan month. The first outreach programme was a Bubur Lambuk distribution for all Port Dickson residents, which was carried out in 4 areas, namely,
Hengyuan office, Hengyuan main police station, Port Dickson District office and Port Dickson town. While in 1 June 2018, Hengyuan hosted a breaking fast dinner together with Deputy Negeri Sembilan State Speaker Y.B. Ravi A/L Munusamy for Asnaf families from Kampung Air Meleleh and fenceline communities' representatives.
