With Hari Raya (the end of Ramadan) celebration just around the corner, and in the spirit of caring and sharing during this fasting month, QNET Malaysia treated 35 underprivileged children from the Association of Social Services and Community Development of Gombak Selangor (PSPK) to a Hari Raya shopping and an Iftar session at Mydin Hypermarket in Malaysia.
40 QNET Malaysia staff and volunteers took part in the activity which began with a Baju Raya (clothes for Raya) shopping for the 35 children aged between 7 to 17 years old. They also enjoyed some of the attractions in the shopping mall before breaking their fast at one of the restaurants.
“With RYTHM (Raise Yourself To Help Mankind) being QNET’s philosophy, it gives us great pleasure to bring happiness to these children this Ramadan. While most families are busy preparing for Hari Raya celebrations, however, it is just another ordinary day for children at welfare homes. This is why we make special efforts, such as treating them to a shopping and buka puasa session,” said QNET Chief Executive Officer Trevor Kuna.
The children were simply ecstatic having the opportunity to indulge in the shopping session. They shopped for their new Hari Raya gear and were seen happily trying out their selected attire while being assisted by staff from QNET and Mydin.
“We are indeed very touched to witness the happiness and delightful smiles of these children who have been deprived of such simple activities during the festive season. This initiative serves as a reminder to us, to always practice compassion and be mindful of all the blessings,” added Trevor Kuna.
The children were also treated to an Iftar session with QNET CEO Trevor Kuna and staff of QNET.
