More than 30 children from Darul Hedayah Rohingya Academy Ipoh had a day of excitement filled with gifts from Jakel Greentown and food treats from Wing Zone restaurant.
In light with Aidilfitri on June 15, the kids were given a pair of brand new baju melayu for the boys and a pair of baju kurung for the girls. They also received duit raya.
“We thank all Perakeans especially Ipohites for the constant support we received on behalf of the company. If it wasn’t for our customers’ patronage, we couldn’t afford to do what we did with the kids today,” said Nor Azizi Hashim, the managing director for Jakel’s Greentown branch.
Later on the same day, Wing Zone restaurant threw a breaking fast session for the kids and their custodians. This was also the first time Wing Zone had such an event organised by the management and they plan to do more in the future,
“We believe that in life we need to be good and kind to everyone. To see the excitement from the kids who have never been to the restaurant and see how much they appreciated the food, is very touching,” said a representative from Wing Zone (Greentown).
