Yayasan Chow Kit children and youths participate in a fun-filled workshop with GOLD special students
It was a heartwarming moment when the Hearts of GOLD (Generating Opportunities for Learning Disabled) special students, who were adopted by Sunway Group since 1995, guided Yayasan Chow Kit children and youths to decorate beautiful cookie jars which brought an abundance of joy, laughter and colour in the month of Raya celebrations at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa on 18 July 2014.
In line with Sunway’s ‘Light of Hope’ initiative to reach out to the underprivileged community during major festive occasions, Sunway Group through its staff club, Kelab Sosial Sunway (KSS) hosted a memorable yet fun-filled evening for the 80 Yayasan Chow Kit children and youths aged between 7 to 21 to participate in a series of interactive workshops, “Baju Raya” shopping and to enjoy a sumptuous “Buka Puasa” meal at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa Lagoon 1 Ballroom.
Aligned with Sunway Group’s C.A.R.E (Community Aid, Reach-out and Enrichment) projects, which is one of the pillars of Sunway’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts to enrich the lives of the community, Sunway also brought in the special students from the Hearts of GOLD Foundation to teach the children and youths glass jar painting and eco-friendly notebook making demonstration.
Sunway Group also placed emphasis on staff involvement as KSS conducted a ‘Light of Hope’ charity drive amongst Sunway staff, encouraging them to sponsor RM100 towards a Chow Kit individual. Therefore, each child or youth received “Baju Raya”, “Duit Raya”, a prayer mat and goodie bag as well as a small personalised notebook made by the GOLD students, which were generously contributed by the staff. 100 Sunway staff also became the adopted brothers and sisters for a day to these children to spend time with and chaperone them on this day.
