The rain did not deter shoppers at Mydin USJ, Subang Jaya, from making a beeline for Maggi's Cukup Rasa bubur lambuk recently. Some 5,000 containers of bubur lambuk was prepared by Maggi executive chef Abdul Muluk Rambli. Nestle Products Sdn Bhd (Nestle) food division business executive manager Rosalyn Simba said they were spreading the Ramadan cheer by serving people home-cooked food.
"Ramadan is a humbling time, especially for those without family members," she said. "Through this occasion, Maggi is also encouraging consumers to nurture family ties through cooking." Nestle then organised a buka puasa for 200 orphans and the underprivileged from welfare homes in cooperation with Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd (Mydin).
The children - from Pusat Jagaan Rumah Kesayangan, Rumah Amal Baitul Kasih, Rumah Amal Cahaya Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Rumah Limpahan Kasih and Pusat Jagaan Baitul Hidayah - also received Mydin shopping vouchers and RM20,000 worth of goods. MYDIN executive director Ahimmat Mydin said it was a rewarding experience to work with Nestle. "MYDIN has always been the biggest buyer of Nestle goods and it is beneficial that we see eye-to eye when it comes to contribution to the society," Ahimmat said. Subang Jaya Municipal Council deputy vice-councillor, Abdullah Marjunid, said he welcomes any contribution from corporate sectors to the underprivileged around the area."This moulds us to become a caring community," Abdullah said.
