KLANG, 4 July 2015 –As part of UMW’s effort to support the community, 54 underprivileged children from Rumah Aman in Sungai Buloh were treated to Hari Raya shopping outing. The children, who were given RM250 voucher each, were accompanied by 45 UMW employees (UMW Community Champions) when they shopped at AEON Bukit Raja.
This is an annual event organised by UMW in conjunction with the holy month of Ramadhan as part of its effort to enable the less fortunate to celebrate festive seasons. Most of them, aged between 3 to 16 years old, chose clothing items like casual shirts and jeans as well as shoes for themselves.
After the shopping trip, the children returned to Rumah Aman with UMW employees, who joined them for ‘buka puasa’. UMW Executive Director, Dr. Wafi Nazrin Abdul Hamid presented a cheque of RM10,000 as donation to Rumah Aman’s representative. In addition to the shopping voucher, the children were given ‘duit raya’ and goodie bags.
This programme is part of UMW’s continuous support towards the underprivileged communities in the country under its community pillar where UMW continues to champion many worthy causes under its three pillars, the other two being education and environment.
