Great Eastern Life Children Care Organised Raya Baking Workshop for Underprivileged Children

Through its corporate social responsibility initiative, ChildrenCare, Great Eastern Life Assurance (Malaysia) Berhad (GELM) continued the spirit of Syawal by organising a baking class, termed the ‘Sunny Lebaran Baking Workshop’, for almost 40 underprivileged children from Rumah Amal Cahaya Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Pusat Jagaan Pertubuhan Pendidikan Anak-Anak Yatim Selangor (Rumah Bakti), and Pusat Jagaan Nuri. Aligned with the Personal Development pillar of ChildrenCare, the two-hour programme aimed at encouraging the children to explore their artistic and culinary talents through the proper craft and techniques of cookie-baking. Incorporating a mini baking competition as part of the programme, the kitchen was filled with laughter and cheer as the children, aged 10 to 17, demonstrated their creativity and camaraderie. They were then treated to a wholesome Raya buffet lunch and to conclude the programme, GELM made sure they did not return home empty-handed with each kid receiving a Raya giftbag. To further the Raya cheer, GELM also made a donation of gift vouchers worth RM12,500 to five other homes registered under Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat.
