PASIR GUDANG: Regency Specialist Hospital distributed over 5,000 packs of bubur lambuk to the public in the spirit of Ramadan.

Some 200 of its staff and volunteers came together to prepare and distribute the porridge around Johor Baru, including at Stulang Laut Ferry Terminal, Today’s Mall in Seri Alam, Tesco Seri Alam and Senai International Airport.

Its chief executive officer Serena Yong said the effort was part of the hospital’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme to give back to the community.

“We first started our ‘Jom Masak Bubur Lambuk’ community event in 2012 where we distributed 2,000 containers of bubur lambuk.

“The Seri Alam community has been very welcoming of our efforts and we hope this event will continue to strengthen ties and promote unity among Johoreans,” she said, adding that this was the fifth year they had organised it.

Yong said apart from bubur lambuk, they also prepared dodol, a Malaysian delicacy.

“The cooking brings people together and helps build the spirit of respect and understanding among the local community,” she said.

Johor Jaya councillor Ku Chee Chien represented Johor Tourism, Women, Family and Community Development Committee chairman Liow Cai Tung at the event.
