Sunway Putra Celebrates Deepavali 2016 with Underprivileged Children and Single Mothers!

11:53:00 PM

In conjunction with the Diwali Festival 2016, Sunway Putra Hotel is celebrating this festive with about 80 underprivileged children and single mothers through its annual Time to Give corporate social responsibility initiative.

On 5th November 2016, Sunway Putra invited children and single mothers who were mostly abused, orphaned or underprivileged from three different homes in the Klang Valley, namely Rumah SVP Klang, Rumah Ozanam Klang and Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Lagenda.

The event was founded by Sashi Kumar Nair, his wife Sumita Yashvant Kumar and assisted by his childhood friend Mr. Shanmugayogan Shanmuganthan, and Charity Food Basket Society Klang which was founded by Mr. Chew Song Kong. Their initial idea was to treat these unfortunate children to a good meal at a 5-star hotel.

This time around, Sunway Putra Hotel collaborated with Sunway Putra Mall which is adjacent to the hotel to develop a more joyful program for the children rather than just an open house concept.

Each child were given RM 10 vouchers to spent at the TCBY Frozen Yogurt & Mrs Field's Cookies at Sunway Putra Mall so that they are able to experience shopping for themselves and at the same time the pleasure of enjoying the ice-cream and cookies. 

Children were given an hour to play at the Playland, Parenthood as they sponsored 80 Limitless Play vouchers that introduced these children to edutainment and fun-filled time in their indoor playground. 

Next, the excited children were then ushered to the Sunway Putra Hotel where they were treated to a Hi-Tea fit for a king with popular Indian dishes such as Lamb Kofta with Masala, Biryani Rice, Chicken Kurma and Vegetable Dhall Curry. 

Speaking at the event, Sunway Putra Hotel Director of Finance, Mr. Sivamayam Gunaratnam on behalf of General Manager Sunway Putra Hotel, Mr. Christopher Bong said, “Sunway Putra Hotel has always been committed to foster harmony in our society and empower the lives of our future generation. Therefore, it is our privilege to live these values through our initiative today.”

“Having said that, we are also proud to announce that this would be our biggest corporate social responsibility initiative to-date, after having wrapped up our refurbishment and renovation exercise that lasted almost three (3) years in December 2015,” he continued. 

Time to Give Sunway Putra Hotel, launched in December 2015, is a CSR program that reaches out to the underprivileged and less fortunate during festive seasons throughout the year. The campaign also encourages employees of the hotel to participate and volunteer their time and capabilities to help these unfortunate members of the society. 

Other highlights at the event, was the presentation of 120 hampers to the underprivileged children and single mothers as well as “duit raya” which were solely arranged by Simple Souls and Charity Food Basket Society Klang.
