Shopping Spree – LITRAK Group
09 Aug 2012
AS always, LITRAK Group will have a line up of special events in view of the approaching Hari Raya Aidilfitri. And again, the must-not-miss shopping spree event for this year around has now come to benefit for the needy and the underprivileged.
The interesting fact about this event is that it has been conducted for 4 consecutive years for various orphanages especially in Klang Valley. Selected Home will be treated to a day of shopping for the Raya festival. This year, LITRAK Group has again organised a shopping spree for 55 children aged 6 to 12 years old of Pusat Jagaan Lambaian Kasih from Kg Sg Penchala.
The main reason of why the Home being selected again as the beneficiary (the same Home was chosen in 2009) is purely because of its building which home to about 30 male students was recently caught fire (on 29th June 2012) and caused the whole part of the building to collapse and completely burnt. The Home now has to place the male students in a temporary small room in another building where it’s difficult to breathe a clean air as the room is obviously not comfortable and suitable for a healthy environment.
Sazally Saidi, Chief Executive Officer of LITRAK Group commented that this is part of LITRAK Group’s corporate social responsibility, which they do regularly for the past 4 years. “Hari Raya shopping spree serves as an effort to make sure the underprivileged are looking forward to celebrating the festival. We’ve had a fun time adding everything up and making sure the children from Pusat Jagaan Lambaian Kasih got everything they need. Not just that, this year around, we are allocating RM150 for each child. It is important for me not just as a CEO but as a person to ensure that they are able to celebrate with some more joy and anticipation of a good day because they have the beautiful clothes like the other kids out there. I sincerely hope that it would help to lighten their burden,” he said.
Pusat Jagaan Lambaian Kasih is a non-profit organisation which was set up in 2007 and is a privately run charity home.
