Bringing Ramadan Cheer to the Less Fortunate Children
In the spirit of Ramadan, the Ipoh City Council (MBI) hosted a breaking of fast meal for about 50 orphans from Pertubuhan Baitul Aini Anak-Anak Yatim dan Miskin Ipoh Perak and Pertubuhan Pusat Jagaan Anak-Anak Yatim Al Yassin.
This community initiative was made possible with the collaborative effort of the City Council’s strategic partners, i.e., M Roof Hotel, Econsave Hypermarket, Navira Meditech, Perak Community Specialist Hospital (PCSH) along with Perak Media Sports & Welfare Club (Kelab Sukan & Kebajikan Media Perak). The meaningful event was graced by Ipoh City Mayor Y.Bhg. Dato’ Rumaizi bin Baharin@Md Daud. He was accompanied by Ipoh City Councillors.
Earlier in the day, the children were taken to Econsave Chemor to shop for school uniforms, bags and other school essentials, sponsored by the hypermarket. The children then had their eyes checked. Those who required spectacles were sponsored by Navira Meditech.
During the dinner, which was sponsored by M Roof Hotel, the children also received duit Raya, courtesy of PCSH. The Mayor expressed his appreciation to these corporations for coming forward to support the initiative as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
He also took the opportunity to thank the Perak Media Sports & Welfare Club for its support and for providing ample media coverage not only for the Ipoh City Council but also for its strategic partners, bringing publicity to them.
