A sumptuous spread of traditional Hari Raya favourites; rendang, lemang, satay as well as cookies were served to all the children.
“As we strive to provide equal opportunities to the less fortunate children, we keep up to our mission by ensuring that these children too get to experience festivities like the rest of us. This year, we are excited to host this celebration in Rumah Bakti Nur Syaheera who has been an exceptional host to further enhance the relationships amongst all of us that strive for the same goals,” said Anne Rajasaikaran, Principal Officer of The Budimas Charitable Foundation.
The Hari Raya spirit was magnified when each child receives their ‘duit raya’ from the board Trustees of The Budimas Charitable Foundation as well as goodies bags filled with treats from our generous sponsors.
