Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP)’s Institute of Postgraduate Studies (IPS) and Postgraduate Association organised a Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration that brought cheers to 60 children at the Hembusan Kasih Sayang Care Centre in Taman Guru here.
The event was held on May 30, 2019 and was organised under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.
They contributed essential items, food and raya pocket money to the children, comprising orphans and those from poor background.
Programme Director, Helmi Mohamed Isa said they got to mingle with the children and celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
“The CSR programme can help instil compassion and make them feel more appreciative towards the less privileged.
“IPS will continue to organise programmes such as this in the future,” he said.
The centre’s principal Mohd Uqbah said the place was home for 29 boys and 31 girls and that four houses were rented to accommodate all of them.
He welcomed contributions from the public to help ease their financial burden and help the children lived more comfortably.
