CIMB Bank under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) initiative, CIMB Community Link, contributed RM200,000 sum to Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur Bukit Kiara to carry out its Sight Conservation Project to help fund cataract operations for 200 underprivileged elderly people whose visions are affected by cataracts.

State assemblyman for Kampung Tunku (ADUN) YB Lau Weng San also contributed RM10,000 sum towards the Sight Conservation Program to help fund eye glassses for the poor with vision problems in the SEA Park neighbourhood.

CIMB Bank regional director 2 Freddie Acho Bian and Kampung Tunku state assemblyman (ADUN) YB Lau Weng San presented the mock cheques in a ceremony held at CIMB Bank SEA Park Branch on Saturday 22nd January 2011.
