Putrajaya, 15 December 2022 – In the spirit of Christmas, Alamanda Shopping Centre (Alamanda) brought festive cheer to the children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai, Selangor.
On 14 December 2022, a group of 31 children and teenagers aged between 3 and 18 years old were hosted to a heart-warming celebration in Alamanda. They were greeted by the members of Alamanda’s management team when they arrived.
The little ones were taken for mini train rides in the mall before being ushered to the Centre Court to witness a magic show performance. They were then presented with Christmas gifts by the General Manager of Alamanda, Pang Sook Fong before being treated to a sumptuous Christmas lunch. The event was made more meaningful with Alamanda’s retail partners contributing Christmas goodies to the children.
Andrew Brien, Executive Director of Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd said, “As the season of giving is upon us, we should always remember that many out there are less privileged. In view of this and as part of the mall’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) effort, we are honoured to host these children and we are hopeful that this event will be a memorable one for them.”
Brien added, “But the real value is not about the gift, but in the intention behind it – that it is given with great affection, just like today.”
The caretaker of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Yesuvin Mahligai Selangor, Ms Viviliyah Rajan said, “This Christmas treat and joy by Alamanda definitely means a lot to us especially the children. The celebration is not just about receiving gifts and goodies, but also the care and attention these children received at this time of the year.
