BRINGING CHEER FOR HARI RAYA
On 25 July 2013, 11 PPB staff visited ten families at the Sri Perak flats, Bandar Baru Sentul in Kuala Lumpur. They brought with them provisions and other goodies to be given out in conjunction with the festive period, which included rice, cookies, canned drinks, and other food products and toiletries, as well as home-cooked 'buka puasa' meals for the day. Each child also received a new set of 'Raya' clothes.
One of the recipients, a mother of nine, was moved to tears. She was grateful for the contributions and said they would ease her expenses, and also enable her children to have a more enjoyable Hari Raya celebration compared to previous years.
Thanks to all the PPB staff who helped unload and carry the items and participated in the visits. At the end of the event, some staff came away feeling more blessed!
