In support of a healthy community

BlueScope Malaysia joined forces with a local hospital to host a health fair for the community of Kapar, Selangor.

The fair coincided with World Heart Day and offered basic health screening services to help educate the community about cardiovascular health and how to minimise the risk of coronary heart disease, the number one cause of death in Malaysia.

Healthcare workers provided free blood pressure, glucose, body mass index and cholesterol tests to 300 people. BlueScope also arranged activities and gifts for young children who attended.

The hospital was very grateful to BlueScope for helping the community be more conscious of heart disease, and learn how to choose healthy eating habits and take up physical activities.

The fair was part of BlueScope Malaysia’s longstanding “BlueScope Steel and Community” corporate social responsibility program in the Kapar community.
