Kuala Lumpur (21 June 2016) – In conjunction with the holy month of Ramadan and in the spirit of caring and giving, Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Berhad (EXIM Bank) today hosted its EXIM Bank 2016 Annual Iftar Programme with Pertubuhan Kebajikan Baitul Aini Selangor held at Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
During the event, 34 deserving children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Baitul Aini Selangor received ‘Duit Raya’ from EXIM Bank while a RM10,000 cheque was handed over to the welfare home for their up keeping and daily expenses. The children were also given school bags with complete set of stationeries courtesy of EXIM Bank. The contribution was presented by Y.Brs Puan Norzilah Mohammed, President/Chief Executive Officer of EXIM Bank, witnessed by Y.Bhg. Datuk Mat Noor Nawi, Chairman of EXIM Bank and members of the board.
Speaking at the event, Datuk Mat Noor Nawi highlighted that this Iftar Programme is an annual event organized by the Bank to celebrate and extends our love to the underprivileged children at the same time to contribute for their Ramadan and Raya preparations. “This event has become a tradition for EXIM Bank in the month of Ramadan and we look forward to celebrate many more occasions with orphanages and share the company’s success by giving back to those in need,” said Datuk Mat Noor Nawi.
In thanking EXIM Bank for their contribution, Muhammad Hussin, Principal of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Baitul Aini Selangor said "We really appreciate the assistance and contribution given by EXIM Bank Malaysia and I hope that more corporate companies will follow suit”.
Founded in 2013 and located in Kuang Selangor, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Baitul Aini Selangor is currently a home to about 35 tahfiz students and orphans who are all dependent on only public donations as well as income from few of its residents. This welfare home educates their students mainly on Al-Quran teaching apart from the Islamic studies and development.
In addition to the sumptuous spread of local delights, the evening tapered off with the Muslims performing the Isya’ and Terawih prayers as sign of gratitude and respect for the holy month.
EXIM Bank will continue to organize such program from time to time to help the needy and less fortunate.
