Sunway Group’s annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) event is back with the nationwide #SunwayforGood Sinar Ramadan. 

This initiative will spread cheer and joy to underprivileged communities across Johor, Perak, Penang, Selangor and Terengganu throughout the holy month of Ramadan.

At the Penang leg of #SunwayforGood Sinar Ramadan at Wisma Yatim Perempuan Islam Pulau Pinang, Minister of Women, Family and Community Development YB Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri.

“Sunway’s Sinar Ramadan initiative is part of our ongoing mission to uplift the community through the strength of unity and the impact of collective action. We are grateful for the support from our partners, including Yayasan Kebajikan Negara (YKN), Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF), and more, underscoring our shared commitment to societal welfare. Together, we aim to forge a path of compassion and care, reflecting our core values and the essence of Ramadan.” said Shukri.

At the orphanage, Sunway distributed essential groceries, gifted duit Raya and prepared a scrumptious buka puasa spread for the home’s children in the presence of the minister, together with Sunway’s long-term partners Yayasan Kebajikan Negara (YKN) Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Malaysia (PEYATIM).

“This year’s Sinar Ramadan is made even more meaningful given Sunway is also celebrating our 50 th anniversary. It has been Sunway’s tradition every year to bring smiles and spread
cheer to the underprivileged communities nationwide during festive seasons, including Chinese New Year and Deepavali.” said Sunway Group deputy chairman Tan Sri Datuk Seri Razman Hashim.

The presence of MAF Red Ribbon Celebrity Supporters added some glitz and glamour to the whole affair, where celebrated actor Dato’ Aaron Aziz and popular comedian Dee joined Sunway to volunteer at Wisma Yatim Perempuan Islam Pulau Pinang.

Sunway has also set up a library at the orphanage under the Sunway READ programme, which stands for Reading Enhances Aspiration and Drive. This library is part of Sunway’s commitment to build or refurbish 50 libraries by 2024, in conjunction with Sunway’s 50 th anniversary.

Following the event in Penang, the #SunwayforGood Sinar Ramadan will continue in Selangor and Terengganu next week, before the grand finale with Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tengku Permaisuri Selangor Hajah Norashikin on 24 April 2024 at Sunway Resort Hotel.

In collaboration with Selangor Youth Community, of which Duli Yang Teramat Mulia Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah is the royal patron – Sunway endeavours cap a memorable Raya for over 300 children from several orphanages across Selangor.
