As part of KPJ Ipoh’s CSR effort to support the community, 40 children from Rumah Kanak-kanak Sultan Abdul Aziz in Kuala Kangsar were treated to a Hari Raya shopping outing. The children, who were given RM150 cash each, were accompanied by 40 KPJ Ipoh employees when they shopped at Mydin Hypermarket, Meru Raya.
This is the second Hari Raya shopping outing organised by KPJ Ipoh in conjunction with the holy month of Ramadan as part of its effort to enable the less fortunate to celebrate festive seasons. Most of them, aged between 7 to 12 years old, chose clothing items like baju Melayu, baju kurung, casual shirts and jeans as well as shoes for themselves.
After the shopping trip, the children were brought to Masjid Muhammadiah (Masjid Cina), Tasek with KPJ Ipoh volunteers, who joined them for ‘Iftar’. KPJ Ipoh Chief Executive Director, Tn Hj Asmadi Mohd Bakri presented a cheque of RM1000 as donation to Rumah Kanak-kanak Sultan Abdul Aziz, Kuala Kangsar’s representative. In addition to the shopping cash, the children were given ‘duit raya’ and goodie bags.
This programme is part of KPJ Ipoh’s continuous support towards the underprivileged communities in the state where KPJ Ipoh continues to organise many worthy causes besides the other three being health awareness, education and environment.
For more than five years, KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital have held gotong-royong bubur lambuk in the hospital during the holy month of Ramadan.
The gotong-royong organised at the car park area of the hospital witnessed five huge pots of bubur lambuk prepared with a total of about 1400 packs per day on the 16th and 23rd, respectively, (final round will be held on June 30) distributed to all consultants, management, staff and visitors of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital.
The objectives of this tradition are to strengthen the relationship amongst the consultants, management and staff of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital besides the noble cause of distributing bubur lambuk to all, including customers in KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital.
“We are pleased to offer this gesture of goodwill through our distribution of these Ramadan favourites. We also continue to see this as a significant practice, a “must” yearly event, to foster the spirit of togetherness,” said Tn Hj Asmadi Mohd Bakri, Chief Executive Officer of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital.
