Besides aiming to raise funds for holistic education, Nalanda Family Fun Fair also fulfills its community-service objective by inviting charitable homes to participate in the event. This year, Tong Sim Senior Citizens’ Home in Kampung Subang, Siddharthan Care Centre in Petaling Jaya, and Bodhi Home Centre in Cheras will be taking part in our Fun Fair.
‘Silver Lining’ is a programme initiated by Nalanda Youth Centre in 2015 to promote acts of kindness towards others among Malaysian youths. A ‘Silver Lining Day’ is organised once every three months where youths dedicate one Sunday to serving the community.
On 2 July and 16 July, Nalanda officers paid separate visits to Tong Sim Senior Citizens’ Care Centre and Ci Hang Chempaka Welfare Association respectively. They were at the two welfare homes to deliver food items such as rice, cooking oil, dried food, and vegetables which were kindly sponsored by devotees. Nalanda President Sis. Evelyn who led the visits also offered the homes Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ coupons for them to purchase other necessities at the Fair.
We are happy to share that children from Siddharthan Care Centre are again coming to take part in this year’s Nalanda’s ‘Family Fun Fair’. As part of its CSR Programme, the Kemaman Bitumen Co. Sdn Bhd has kindly offered the home coupons to purchase food, clothes and stationeries at the Fair. Representatives of the company together with Nalandian officers went to Siddharthan Care Centre to present the coupons on 18 June.
