Sports Toto brings gifts to children at hospital and welfare homes
In conjunction with the coming Hari Raya celebrations, Sports Toto reached out to about 300 people on separate occasions to spread the festive cheer.
An entourage of Sports Toto staff made a goodwill visit to the paediatric wards of Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah in Klang and Hospital Sungai Buloh recently.
They had a light-hearted moment mingling with about 150 children in both hospitals and handed duit raya and gift packs to them. The children were visibly brightened up by the surprises despite being unwell.
Thereafter, a breaking of fast was held in collaboration with Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort for about 150 underprivileged children and single mothers from Persatuan Anak-Anak Yatim Dan Ibu Tunggal Kg. Medan, PJ and Pertubuhan Rumah Anak Yatim Miskin Daerah Kuala Langat, Banting.
Chartered buses were specially arranged to transport the invited guests to the Country Resort.
They were treated to a rare and exciting experience of horse-drawn carriage rides and poney rides around the scenic equestrian park, a sumptuous dinner, duit raya and gift packs plus entertainment by talented teen singer, Putri as well as some fun andgames with fabulous prizes.
The Raya charity programme has been listed in Sports Toto’s calendar of charitable causes for many years as it is part of the company’s tradition towards inculcating a sense of caring and sharing in the community.
