Buka puasa feast for 8,000 poor

ABOUT 8,000 underprivileged people were treated to a buka puasa feast at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur last night, courtesy of the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry.

The senior citizens and children, most of whom were from the Klang Valley, were joined by invited guests, including officials from several agencies such as Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL), Rela, Alam Flora, non-governmental organisations and the private sector.

As soon as it was time to break fast, they tucked into food and drinks distributed by volunteers from the event sponsors who were manning the 45 food and beverage stalls on the field. Among the items handed out were packets of fried chicken, nasi minyak, mee hoon, satay, kuih-muih, fruit and various drinks

A total of 53 corporate bodies and private companies donated food and cash for the event.
