Shopping Spree & Buka Puasa Treat for 100 Orphanage Children


100 children aged 7 to 19 from Yayasan Chow Kit Kuala Lumpur, Rumah Amal Limpahan Kasih Puchong and Rumah Safiyyah Shah Alam were treated to an afternoon out, which included Hari Raya shopping spree and buka puasa dining. The children’s excitement was infectious, with lively chattering and laughter heard throughout the shopping aisles as 12 Guardian Malaysia team members assisted them to choose their clothes and goodies.

 

Guardian Malaysia also educates children on health and nutrition. Teaching them the facts about nutrition and its importance to good health would equip them well into adulthood. Staying healthy from a young age is important to build a strong foundation for their health. The topics of discussion included the benefits of drinking water, nutritional facts about food and how food choices affect health.


Armed with renewed knowledge about food and nutrition, each child went home with RM100 worth of goodies, which included festive clothing, snacks, toys, stationery, daily essentials and personal care products.


This is part of Guardian Malaysia’s long-standing Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, the event was held under this year’s theme Beramal Bersama Guardian. For more information, please visit www.guardian.com.my
