AmBank Group through its sports club, Kelab AmBank Group (KAG), hosted 100 underprivileged children from SK Desa Tasik in Bandar Tasik Selatan, Kuala Lumpur, to a breaking of fast followed by a Hari Raya shopping programme five days later.

The children, consisting of 45 boys and 55 girls aged between seven and 12 years old, were taken to Mydin Wholesale Hypermarket in USJ, Subang Jaya to shop for their new baju Melayu and baju kurung.

AmBank Group chairman Tan Sri Azman Hashim together with senior management and AmBank Group staff played host to the children during the breaking of fast at Dewan Perdana Felda, Kuala Lumpur.

“This is one activity which we look forward to every year in the month of Ramadan.

“It is one way for us to contribute to the less fortunate, in line with Islamic teachings of caring for the less fortunate,” said AmBank Group group Corporate Communications & Marketing head Syed Anuar Syed Ali, who is also Kelab AmBank Group president.

“We are delighted to have the children of SK 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 occasion,” he added.

This programme falls under the AmKasih Programme which is the platform for the Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) sustainable development initiatives.
