Three (3) TMpoint outlets in Klang Valley now ready to accept device donations for B40 families

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) is supporting MYBAIKHATI, an industry-wide device crowdsourcing initiative aimed to collect and repair used communication devices to be distributed to low income families (B40). TM has set up three (3) of its TMpoint outlets in the Klang Valley as collection points to facilitate the donation drive. The outlets are TM Experience Centre (TMEC) at Menara TM, Bangsar; TMpoint Cyberjaya and TMpoint Shah Alam. The collection points will be progressively expanded nationwide in the near future.

Commenting on TM Group's participation, Imri Mokhtar, Group Chief Executive Officer, TM said: "Everyone should have access to digital devices, especially in these times. The MYBAIKHATI campaign aims to provide the B40 community with usable smart devices for digital learning, work and business, so they have the means to weather through this unprecedented period. TM is excited to be part of this industry-wide initiative as together, we can help to alleviate the burden of the underprivileged and at the same time reduce the digital gap. We have kick-started this year-long donation campaign by setting up three (3) of our TMpoint outlets in the Klang Valley as the designated collection points in this pilot phase; so members of the public who are keen to donate can conveniently drop off their devices. We will definitely explore more locations nationwide to enable more people to take part and make their contribution."

"We hope our fellow Malaysians, individuals and businesses, can come forth in the spirit of caring and generosity by donating your pre-loved used laptops, chromebooks, 4G-enabled tablets or 4G smartphones. The campaign runs for 12 months, so we hope you have ample time to sift through your belongings or consider a donation as you upgrade the devices for your own families. After making your contribution with us, don't forget to redeem a special token of appreciation for your kind gesture. Please join us in this collective effort towards enabling a more digital society, digital businesses and ultimately, a Digital Malaysia," he added.

TM calls for all Malaysians and members of the public, be it individuals or companies to donate their used devices. TM will repair and refurbish devices that meet the terms and conditions with an allocation of up to RM500 for each device. The refurbished devices will then be distributed to eligible families in the B40 segment, through an appointed Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), or through other various channels including selected "Pusat Internet Komuniti" (PIKs) nationwide. The donated devices that do not meet the requirements of the initiative will be responsibly recycled via the existing e-Waste programme.

To be part of this noble initiative, simply follow these simple steps:​

  1. Make sure your device is in working condition and is complete with its charger. Do make sure that your personal information and data has been completely deleted
  2. Bring the device(s) to the designated TMpoint outlets, meet with our staff and fill up the Device Contribution Form as well as the Contribution Acknowledgement Form
  3. Place the device(s) in the storage facility provided
