In the spirit of Ramadan, AmBank Group organises this annual charity event to bring festive cheer to the children. The 100 children consisting 45 boys and 55 girls, aged between 7 to 12 years old, were ushered to Mydin Wholesale Hypermarket, USJ, Subang Jaya to shop for their new Baju Melayu and Baju Kurung.
The Buka Puasa hosted by Tan Sri Azman Hashim, Chairman, AmBank Group together with the Senior Management and AmBank Group staff was held at Dewan Perdana Felda, Kuala Lumpur.
“This is one activity which we look forward to every year in the holy month of Ramadan. This is one way for us to contribute to the less fortunate, in line with the Islamic teachings of caring, self-discipline, sacrifice and sympathy to the less fortunate,” said Syed Anuar Syed Ali, Head, Group Corporate Communications & Marketing, AmBank Group who is also the President of Kelab AmBank Group.
“We are delighted to have the children of Sekolah Kebangsaan Desa Tasik joining us for this occasion. The school is one of our adopted schools under the School Adoption Programme assigned by Bank Negara Malaysia. Their presence certainly makes this Ramadan a more meaningful and joyous occasion,” he added.
