CPF funds for the elderly
Population statistics show that the world is entering the aging society while Thailand is estimated to become an aged society by 2024.
Recognizing the importance of providing care for the elderly who contributed to their family and the community, we launched the “Happy Returns for the Elderly” project in 2011 and developed the “CPF Funds for the Elderly” in 2012. The aim of this project and the fund is to find a sustainable solution to continuously support the elderly so as to increase their quality of life and enable them to live happily.
CPF Funds for the Elderly aims at supporting the elderly above 55 years old surrounding the factories and farms who are neglected, unaided, or impoverished. Under the scheme, we provide financial support for 2,000 Baht per person every month until their last day of life. We also provide food and consumer staples and make a monthly visit.
In addition, we also organize activities for the elderly that create values physically, mentally, and emotionally. In collabouration with local government, the community, and our employees, we organized activities to show respect to the elderly during Songkran Festival, activities to listen to Buddhist sermon, health check-up for the elderly, house cleaning activities, and home repair. In 2020, we supported 869 elderly in total from the beginning of the project.
Promoting Employment Prospect of the Disabled
The Company promotes equal access to rights and welfare of people with disabilities through its collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security as well as Social Development and Human Security Offices at the provincial level. We provide equal opportunities by employing people with disabilities in the profession that is appropriate for each individual ability and also provide skill development training. The training aims to ensure that disabled people are aware of their entitlements, rights and benefits that can improve their livelihood and social well-being, which can, in turn, reduce social inequality. In 2020 we employed 755 people.
