Earlier this Ramadan, the Ragad Foundation hosted their first Iftar program (IFTAR@WECARE) for the less fortunate at the Al Amar Restaurant Kuala Lumpur. It was noble of the Ragad Foundation to organize this as Ramadan is a time for everyone to come together in prayers and fasting; it is also a time for appreciation and allows fasters to feel more compassionate for the less fortunate by experiencing hunger. The IFTAR@WECARE hosted a total of 60 people from Persatuan Down Syndrome, Differently Able Society, Rumah Titian Kasih, and Thafiz International Quranic Center.
Her Most Gracious Toh Puan Datuk Patinggi Hajjah Raghad Kurdi Taib, the Chairman of Ragad Foundation said that the IFTAR@WECARE is aimed at being an annual event to assist and lift the burdens of the underprivileged groups especially during the month of Ramadan. At the iftar program, 60 deserving children received ‘Duit Raya’ from the Ragad Foundation, while the invited homes were given a token to assist them with their daily expenses.
Present at the IFTAR@WECARE was YAM. Tengku Puteri Meriam, His Excellency Khalid Ghanim Mohammad Alghaith UAE Ambassador, Ybhg. Datuk Seri Dr. KK Chai from KK SUPER MART, Ms. Mayan-i Bohari from Maya Progressive Sdn Bhd, Ybhg. Datuk Zaizalnizam Bin Zainun from Yayasan Wilayah, En. Zuwairi Japri Al-Manjie from Legasi Z Sufi Marketing McDonald’s Malaysia, as well as members of the media.
