IVORYCARES, the charitable arm of Ivory Properties Group Berhad (IPGB), treated 10 less fortunate families to a Ramadan buffet in Masjid Kampung Jawa Baru, Penang.

They also gave out goodie bags comprising daily essential items and festive delicacies, as well as green packets to each family.

The shopping complex management team of Penang Times Square also joined in the fun at the mosque located next to the mall in Jalan Kampung Jawa Baru recently.

Among the items presented were kuih raya, sugar, rice, flour, condensed milk, chocolate, instant noodles and biscuits.

The contributions came from caring employees who donated in cash or kind.

Ivorycares president Datuk Ooi Chin Loo, who is also the Group’s executive director, said it had been the company’s tradition to spread festive joy at the mosque.

“We are honoured to be with them once again during Rama-dan.

“We never forget the less fortunate during this festive season. We have been committed to this cause for years.

“I am happy to see Ivorians coming together to spread the Ramadan spirit of sharing and giving,” he said after presenting hampers to the recipients at the mosque.

A total of 10 Muslim employees from IPGB and Penang Times Square also broke fast with the 10 families.

Also present were Penang Times Square general manager C.C. Yeap, deputy general manager Ang Kung San and philanthropist Datuk Seri Nazir Ariff.
