NUSAJAYA, Thursday, September 2nd 2010: Fasting in Islam, is not just about refraining oneself from thirst and hunger but also from every kind of selfish desire and wrong-doing. It also teaches us to be more sympathetic, patient, tolerant and generous towards others.
For UEM Land Holdings Berhad, Ramadan is a month that unites all Muslims together to share the joy of the holy month and spread the culture of giving towards the less fortunate.
As an annual tradition during Ramadhan, UEM Land shares the joy with the local community by organising “Majlis Berbuka Puasa” in several villages in Nusajaya. This year, UEM Land brings cheers and joy to the villagers at Kampung Tiram Duku in Gelang Patah.
The “Majlis Berbuka Puasa” which was held at Kampung Tiram Duku’s mosque today was attended by villagers from the surrounding areas. Joining them during the breaking of fast was UEM Land’s General Manager, Township and Infrastructure Planning, Encik Rusli Zainal Abidin who later presented “Duit Raya” and Raya goodies to 60 less fortunate which consist of single mothers, orphans, handicapped and senior citizens to help them ease their burden during the coming Aidilfitri celebration.
“UEM Land has always cared for the local community’s welfare, regardless whether it is during Ramadhan or Aidilfitri. Our efforts in ensuring a better life for the local community will continue as it is part of our way of giving back to the people who have been supportive towards UEM Land thus far,” said Encik Rusli Zainal Abidin.
“Activities such as this are imperative to us as it brings us together and additionally help us to build a stronger bond with the community,” he added.
Following the ‘Buka Puasa’ and Maghrib prayers, the villagers were then treated to a sumptuous dinner.
