Last week I attended an event where Guardian Malaysia treated 100 children from three charity homes within Klang Valley to a delightful afternoon out in preparation of upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri. The event was held in Giant at Kinrara Puchong.
100 children aged 7 to 19 from Yayasan Chow Kit Kuala Lumpur, Rumah Amal Limpahan Kasih Puchong and Rumah Safiyyah Shah Alam were treated to an afternoon out, which included a shopping spree and buka puasa dining. The children’s excitement was infectious, with lively chattering and laughter heard throughout the shopping aisles as 12 Guardian Malaysia team members assisted them with the daunting task of choosing from the myriads of Hari Raya goodies.
Guardian Health Advisor Aishah Yunos shared with the children the importance of staying healthy via an interactive health and nutrition talk. Topics of discussion included the benefits of drinking water, nutritional facts about food and how food choices affect health.The health talk session by Guardian Health Advisor Siti Aishah Yunos before the shopping spree and buka puasa session. The health talk about nutrition and its importance to good health would equip them into adulthood. Teaching them the facts about high nutrition food vs. those poor in nutritional value will help them make informed choices. They can put what they learn to test in this holy fasting month as it will contribute hugely to the difference between feeling energetic or lethargic throughout the days

Each child went home with RM100 worth of goodies, which included festive clothing, snack, toys, stationery, daily essentials and personal care products. Part of Guardian Malaysia's long-standing Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, the event was held under this year's theme Beramal Bersama Guardian.
