The Albukhary Foundation has grown from strength to strength since it was established in 1996
The personal charity of Syed Mokhtar Albukhary, it was founded to give form and structure to his charitable activities that date back to the day he formed his first company in 1974. Raised on the Muslim values of Taqwa (Faith) and Ehsan (Compassion) that exhort a perpetual endeavour towards equitable order in society, Syed Mokhtar made charity the cornerstone of business while struggling as a rice trader in his early twenties.
“Syed Mokhtar Albukhary has built himself up from almost nothing to be one of Malaysia’s richest men. He has no interest in personal aggrandisement. Instead, his greatest passion is his charitable foundation, the Albukhary Foundation.”
