ABOUT 100 volunteers from Sunway Group broke fast with 22 asnaf (very poor) families from the B40 group.

Together with exco member Dr Afif Bahardin, they were split into smaller groups to enjoy the delicious meal specially prepared by chefs from Sunway Hotel Seberang Jaya.

The dishes included dates, rice and traditional cakes. Boxed drinks were also served.

Sunway also presented 22 packs of groceries including rice, cooking oil, and canned food items as well as duit raya to the families.

Sunway Hotel Georgetown and Sunway Hotel Seberang Jaya general manager Prakash Kumaran said they hoped to bring happiness to the less fortunate.

“We want to help out as much as we can, not just in contributing financial aid and grocery items but also through moral support,” said Prakash.

“At Sunway, we are committed towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals of ensuring no one is left behind,” he added.

Dr Afif joined the Sunway team in visiting single mother Soleha Omar, 36, who has five children aged between seven and 13.

Among those present were Sunway Group brand marketing and communications general manager Bernard Paul Netto, Sunway Carnival Mall general manager Chai Wen Yew, Sunway Construction northern region general manager Lee Kuan Hong, Sunway Property Penang assistant general manager Fong Choon Fuoi and Sunway Hotel Georgetown and Sunway Hotel finance director Woo Hing Siang.

They gave groceries and duit raya to Soleha who said she was grateful to Sunway Group for its Ramadan aid.
