IT WAS truly an early Raya cheer for 100 children from Rumah Nur Salam in Chow Kit when Malaysia Venture Capital Management Berhad (Mavcap) dropped by recently for a surprise visit.

The visitors brought food and gifts for the kids.

Towards the evening, each kid was surprised with duit raya presented by Mavcap chairman Datuk Dr Abdul Samad Alias.

Pat ience is the vir tue: Kids waiting for the call to prayer to break fast.

The company also donated RM5,000 to cover the fuel costs of the centre’s vehicle.

Rumah Nur Salam is a 24-hour activity centre and safehouse that provides a loving environment for all children under the age of 18, living or loitering, in and around the Chow Kit area.

It is a collaboration project between the Social Welfare Department (JKM) and Yayasan Salam Malaysia to assist and protect these children.
