Bangi, May 28, 2019 – The holy month of Ramadan is more than abstaining ourselves from eating and drinking from dawn until dusk. It is a time for reflection and focus on religious obligations, which teaches us to be grateful for all the blessings and practice compassion towards the less fortunate.
In keeping with the spirit of caring and sharing during the fasting month, Duopharma Biotech Berhad (formerly known as CCM Duopharma Biotech Berhad) (“Duopharma Biotech”) recently hosted a special Majlis Berbuka Puasa for more than 50 underprivileged children from Maahad Tahfiz Anak Yatim Darul Fuqaha, comprising Orphans and Asnaf, aged between eight and 17 years old.
Held at the Bangi Convention Centre, the Majlis Berbuka Puasa session was aimed at spreading Ramadan cheer to the children which enabled them to celebrate Ramadan just as others do.
As a key player in the local pharmaceutical industry, Duopharma Biotech is committed to enhancing the well-being of all Malaysians and making a difference in the lives of the community that the Company operates in. The event offered Duopharma Biotech the opportunity to reach out to the less fortunate especially underprivileged children and help ease their burden in the true spirit of Ramadan while enabling them to experience the joy of the fasting month and the mood towards the approaching Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Speaking at the event, YBhg. Tan Sri Datin Paduka Siti Sa’diah Binti Sh Bakir, Chairman of Duopharma Biotech Berhad said that corporate responsibility is central to the Company’s identity and corporate values. “We strongly believe in uplifting and improving the lives of the less fortunate by engaging with them through community-based activities that can create a significant societal impact.
“While their peers get to celebrate Ramadan with their family and friends, the children from Maahad Tahfiz Anak Yatim Darul Fuqaha rarely have the chance to enjoy the blissful month of Ramadan and the Hari Raya festive season in a joyous and warm ambience. We feel humbled and privileged to be given the chance to celebrate with the children at this delightful buka puasa treat and it is truly heartening to see the smiles on their faces,” said YBhg. Tan Sri Datin Paduka Siti Sa’diah.
Besides YBhg. Tan Sri Datin Paduka Siti Sa’diah, members of Duopharma Biotech’s Board of Directors and Senior Management were present at the event. Accompanied by Wan Amir-Jeffery bin Wan Abdul Majid, Chief Operating Officer of Duopharma Biotech Berhad, Tan Sri Datin Paduka Siti Sa’diah presented duit raya and Hari Raya goodies that consisted of Champs multivitamins with Taurine 30s and Champs Effervescent with zinc 30s to the children of Maahad Tahfiz Anak Yatim Darul Fuqaha after the buka puasa session. They also presented Proviton multivitamins CoQ10 Plus 30s and Naturalle Fish Oil 1,000mg 100s x 3 to the children’s chaperones.
“As Muslims across Malaysia look forward to celebrating the upcoming Hari Raya festive season with their loved ones, we hope that our contributions and little gesture of goodwill will create a memorable and pleasant experience for the Maahad Tahfiz Anak Yatim Darul Fuqaha children and enable them to enjoy a livelier Hari Raya this year,” Tan Sri Datin Paduka Siti Sa’diah added.
On the same day, Duopharma Biotech also gave some contributions to Rumah Titian Kasih Al- Inayah in Telok Panglima Garang and Pertubuhan Anak Yatim dan Kebajikan Darul ‘Izzah in Teras Jernang, located close to the Company’s operations.
The Company also organised a similar event with Anak-Anak Yatim Rumah Opah Hasnah on 30 May 2019 in Klang.
