The resort has an annual tradition to share festive goodwill with underprivileged people in their neighbourhood.  When the school was invited, they identified the needy students including orphans, as well as those with special needs and from low-income families.

The young guests were accompanied by their family members, headmistress and eight teachers.

“Our team believes in the spirit of sharing and caring, especially during festive occasions when underprivileged children need more love and attention,” said Pulai Springs Resort general manager, Sunny Soo.

He said the resort aims to celebrate the festive season with less fortunate children and let them feel a sense of belonging in their community.

SK Kangkar Pulai headmistress, Rohani Shamsudin said she was grateful that the students were given an opportunity to dine at the resort.

“The students are very excited to be guests at the Pulai Springs Resort and we wish to thank the resort’s management and staff for their generosity, which goes a long way to help our needy families have a better Ramadan season,” said Rohani. 

Soo then presented the children with duit raya of RM50 each, a sum contributed by the resort and members of the resort’s Sports & Welfare club.

Each child also received goodie bags filled with story books, stationery items, snacks and a RM100 Aeon shopping voucher.  The vouchers were sponsored by a generous long-stay resident of the Cinta Ayu Apartments in Pulai Springs Resort.

After the doa or prayer recitation, the guests broke their fast with a sumptuous buffet spread at the resort’s Gleneagles Terrace Restaurant.
