THE smiles of the children said it all as they enjoyed a buka puasa session in the company of friends and new acquaintances at Mydin Mall Bukit Mertajam in Prai, Penang.
Organised by Coca-Cola Malay-sia, the Fast2Feed programme saw some 230 children from the Rohingya Learning Centre, Spring Learning Centre, SK Tanah Liat, Akademi Qatrunnada and Pertubuhan Permata Al Mahabbah sampling a variety of food including crunchy fried chicken and beverages.
Coca-Cola Malaysia public affairs and communications director Mohamed Kadri Mohamed Taib said the event, which was in its 10th year, was part of the company’s commitment to give back to the community.
“Through our annual Fast2Feed programme held during Ramadan, we make a special effort to reach out to the poor.
“We are grateful for the support we receive from our partners,” he said.
In partnership with Malaysia Muslim Humanity Aid Foundation, a colouring contest, ketupat weaving workshop and a quiz were also held for the children.
Since 2010, the Fast2Feed programme has touched many hearts all over the country by providing nutritious meals and drinks during Ramadan.
This year, Coca-Cola Malaysia will continue to work with its partners to help provide meals to over 5,000 orphans, refugees, families and members of indigenous communities in Selangor, Melaka, Perak, Penang, Johor, Pahang, Kelantan, Sarawak and Kuala Lumpur.
