Through an initiative by SIMPLYSITI, the President and founder of SIMPLYSITI beauty brand, Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin together with Puan Sri Cecilia Lim, wife of Genting Malaysia Berhad chairman had the pleasure to invite four paediatric heart patients and their families from Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) to Resorts World Genting (RWG) for a fun day in the sky. They were accompanied by more than 50 Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs), media, plus invited guests during the event.
The five special children selected for the SIMPLYSITI Di Hati 2019 campaign were Siah Wan Ying, Nurul Syamimi Binti Ahmad Paridon, Auni Insyirah Binti Muhammad Firdaus Hilmi, Nur Auni Mardhiyah Binti Ahmad & Ramesh Rao. All of whom had recently recovered from heart complications at Institut Jantung Negara. For most of them, this was their first time to Resorts World Genting and a full-day programme had been been organised for them and their families.
Close to Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza’s heart, SIMPLYSITI was set up by Malaysia’s most loved artiste with the interest to raise funds but most importantly to spread love and joy to the underprivileged children. Since its inception in 2011, SIMPLYSITI has managed to raise up to RM200,000 to finance surgical costs of 14 underprivileged paediatric heart patients. Having been successful in most of its campaigns, SIMPLYSITI carried out another fund raising recently to help five paediatric heart patients with the support from IJN Foundation. The full amount of funds raised through this aforementioned campaign would be announced at the final event in early February.
“We are thankful that four patients have recovered recently to come to this event. One child is still recovering and we hope to bring him another time. Today, we like to thank Resorts World Genting for sponsoring this whole day outing. It means so much to these children and their families as they have not been to the resort. Having to dine at Ed’s Diner, and to play at SkyTropolis plus watch Imaginatricks are privileges and a dream come true for so many of them. At SIMPLYSITI, our hearts go all out to the less fortunate and we are very grateful to have partners who support us,” said Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza.
Puan Sri Cecilia added, ‘Resorts World Genting has so much to offer and experience. We are more than happy to have this opportunity to play host and we hope the children and their families will have a memorable experience. What SIMPLYSITI DI HATI has initiated is commendable and we are pleased to work with Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza to make these children’s recovery a pleasant one.’
The 100 guests were also treated to two shows at SkySymphony. Next, they were feasted to a scrumptious meal at the all new Ed’s Diner from UK where Puan Sri Cecilia Lim distributed ang pow packets and goodie bags to the heart patients and all guests. The programme continued with a trip to SnowWorld and a thrilling experience at SkyTropolis. After dinner at Coffee Terrace, the group went for an adrenaline experience at Imaginatricks which is currently one of the best choreographed shows in Malaysia that includes acrobatics, dance and singing performances before calling it a day.
SIMPLYSITI recent fund raising would not be successful without the support from Watsons Malaysia as its official partner, Creacion X SIMPLYSITI boutique as an official boutique partner, Astro GoShop and CJ Wow Shop as an official TV partner, Shopee as the official online business partner and Chatime as joint sponsors. The fund raising has also been made successful by customers through their purchases and donations. All monies raised would be channelled to the National Heart Institute Foundation.
