Iftar with the Underprivileged

Following their Corporate Social Responsibility initiative during this holy month of Ramadhan where 1000 packs of free bubur lambuk were distributed to the public, Impiana Hotel Ipoh organised a modest iftar dinner for orphans from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Nurul Iman and senior citizens from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Rumah Orang-Orang Tua (ISLAM).

Guests were entertained by a lively ghazal performance, before the breaking of fast at 7.33pm. The “time” was announced via “live” azan, certainly something different from the norm. Even more unique was a nasyid performance by staff from the hotel Front Office Department. They are definitely talented!
