It was a very special Berbuka Puasa during Ramadan at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur recently as it played host to 30 physically challenged children from Tasputra Perkim and 20 children from Taman Megah Handicapped and Disabled Home.
Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin, Tengku Permaisuri of Selangor, graced the event, breaking fast with the children and taking a personal interest in them. She went round each table greeting the children and speaking to their carers. She also handed out Duit Raya and Hari Raya cookies to them, accompanied by Tom Roelens, General Manager of Four Seasons.
“This is indeed a very auspicious occasion for us at Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur as this is our first time embracing the month of Ramadan since our opening in July last year,” said Mr Roelens. It’s a month for forgiveness, self-restraint and charity, and it is in this caring spirit that the event was held at The Four Seasons.
Tasputra Perkim is a multi-racial day-care training centre for special needs children ranging from ages two to 32. Taman Megah Handicapped and Disabled Children’s Home takes care of 150 children with Down’s Syndrome and autism, and those suffering from epilepsy, stroke, speech and visual impairments.
