'Lighting Of Hearts' Reignites The Spirit Of Ramadan For The Underprivileged

KUALA LUMPUR, 28 July 2012-The joy of preparing for Syawal in the month of Ramadan often brings back fond memories of childhood days.

Shopping for new clothing among others is top of the list, as the excitement and joy it brings is overwhelming for the younger ones.

This year, the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club(KLGCC), Impian Golf & Country Club (IGCC) and Sime Darby Convention Centre(SDCC) joined forces in making this a reality for three orphanage homes. Some 180 children of Rumah Nur Hikmah, Rumah Lindungan Kasih and Rumah Titian Kasih were taken shopping in the city, where they were each presented with brand new Raya attire of their choice.

The whole day event, themed ‘Lighting of Hearts’ then saw these children heading to KLGCC where they were treated to a widespread buffet for bukapuasa, by the poolside. Apart from the raya gifts and food, these children were each presented with a goodie bag consisting of multivitamins, fruit juices, comic books, notebook and cap, courtesy of the sponsors.

The event was graced by Yang Teramat Mulia Tunku Besar Tampin Tunku  Syed Razman Ibni Almarhum Tunku Syed Idrus Al-Qadri and KLGCC’s General Manager Robert Bird.

Robert said “While it is impossible for us to help everyone, we believe that collectively everyone of us can do our part in spreading a little cheer into the lives of others. Most of us are blessed with happy families and we must not forget the less fortunate. Like us, they too deserve the attention, love and care as these are basic fundamental values in shaping any individual”.

Funds for this charity event were raised through the Club members as well as patrons of the Sime Darby Convention Centre. Donations received were in the form of cash and kind, from sponsors like Sime Darby and its group of companies: Sime Darby Healthcare, Sime Darby Industrial and Sime Darby Plantation.

Strategically placed amongst the capital's prime residential suburbs and well served by major roads, Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club and the Sime Darby Convention Centre form a  most conducive backdrop for business, entertainment and leisure.Meanwhile, Impian Golf & Country Club lies in the heart of Kajang, amidst the beauty of the rainforests. All three properties are fully-owned and operated by the SimeDarby Group.
