The Perak Media Sports Club donated RM3636 to Titian Abadi Islamic Old Folks Home on Thursday, July 11. During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, an amount of RM1 from their buffet pax was donated to the charity.
Club president, Rosli Mansor, handed over the money to the home administrator, Zurina Alias, during a simple ceremony held at the home in Taman Kinta Perdana, Lahat, recently. The home has 18 residents.
“I wish to thank the Impiana Hotel for its timely assistance. Hopefully, more corporate bodies would come forward to assist the poor and the needy,” said Rosli to Ipoh Echo.
“We’re pleased to assist in whatever way possible to help these old folks,” he added.
Present at the ceremony was Impiana Hotel General Manager, Gerard Sta Maria and the Director of Sales and Marketing, Normah Ahmad.
Zurina was grateful for the contribution. “The money will be used for the home’s operational needs,” she told those present.
“The Social Welfare Department provides an annual stipend of RM30,000 for the home. The sum, however, is not enough,” she said.
Readers keen to help can contact Zurina at 017 551 9570 for details.
