KUALA LUMPUR: The success of the Roti 1Malaysia Charity Programme, which distributes fresh bread and pastries to the underprivileged in the Klang Valley, has caught the attention of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

In giving the stamp of approval for the programme, the Prime Minister's wife suggested that it be expanded to Permata centres nationwide.

“Make sure the bread and the croissants reach the children because I don't think our children from the Permata centres have tasted croissants.

“So, please give them a chance to taste croissants not only children in homes, but also in the Permata centres,” she said during the launch of the programme yesterday.

She added that the Roti 1Malaysia programme was in line with the Government's objective in developing a caring society.

Started in August last year, the private sector initiative provides the underprivileged with quality breads and pastries from 14 hotels and 11 bakeries.

The fresh bread and pastries are sent daily to about 5,000 people from 60 old folk's and disabled homes, orphanages, hospices, refugee centres and a HIV shelter.

Programme founder chairman Datuk Anne Eu welcomed Rosmah's suggestion.

“My team will have to sit down with the Permata team and work it out. It will have to start with the centres in the Klang Valley,” she said.
