In this Holy month of Ramadhan, leading pharmacy, health and beauty retailer Guardian Malaysia continuing to spread love and joy in the spirit of Ramadhan by treated 100 children from three charity homes within the Klang Valley to a delightful afternoon out in preparation of the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
I was glad to be part of this event, where 100 children aged 7 to 19 from Yayasan Chow Kit Kuala Lumpur, Rumah Amal Limpahan Kasih Puchong and Rumah Safiyyah Shah Alam were treated to an afternoon out, which included a shopping spree and buka puasa dining. The children’s excitement was infectious, with lively chattering and laughter heard throughout the shopping aisles as 12 Guardian Malaysia team members assisted them with the daunting task of choosing from the myriads of Hari Raya goodies.
It's joyful to look at the happy faces of the Orphanage Children
PR & Government Relations Assistant Manager of Guardian Health and Beauty Sdn Bhd, Farahani Failul Rahman said, “In addition to providing the children fun and joy with a shopping spree and buka puasa session, we aimed to educate the children and teenagers and get them to think about staying healthy from a young age. Teaching them the facts about nutrition and its importance to good health would equip them well into adulthood.”
Guardian Health Advisor Aishah Yunos shared with the children the importance of staying healthy via an interactive health and nutrition talk. Topics of discussion included the benefits of drinking water, nutritional facts about food and how food choices affect health.
Armed with renewed knowledge about food and nutrition, the day ended on a high note as each child went home with RM100 worth of goodies, which included festive clothing, snacks, toys, stationery, daily essentials and personal care products. Part of Guardian Malaysia’s long-standing Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, the event was held under this year’s theme Beramal Bersama Guardian.
