“We have been a supporter of Yayasan Al Jenderami and we are committed to making positive contributions to this community. We are also glad for the opportunity to spend time with the children and senior citizens and break fast together,” said Abdul Samad.

Mavcap also brought joy to the children of Rumah Amal Al-Firdaus and Rumah Amal Kasih Bestari, treating them to a shopping trip for Raya items.

Fifty children went to Plaza Shah Alam with Mavcap employees. The children excitedly combed through the wide assortment of clothing at The Reject Shop before moving on to Bata for new shoes.
