In the spirit of the fasting month, Maggi treated the residents of Rumah Titian Kaseh (RTK), a charitable home for over 130 children, disabled
persons and single mothers to a special buka puasa meal and MAGGI® bubur lambuk.
Employees from Maggi and Nestlé Malaysia volunteered their time for this initiative, which kicked off with the preparation of the famous Maggie bubur lambuk by Maggi chefs together with caretakers from RTK.
Reflecting Maggi ‘Cook the Difference’ theme, the traditional savoury rice porridge which is commonly distributed during Ramadhan was made with a mixture of fresh ingredients and spices to create a delicious and healthy meal for buka puasa.
To spruce up the home in time to celebrate the Aidilfitri festivities, the Nestlé employees including the Maggi team conducted a gotong royong session, which saw the volunteers help brighten up the walls with a fresh coat of paint.
Geetha Balakrishna, Business Executive Officer, Maggi, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad added, “Cooking and distributing bowls of nutritious Maggi bubur lambuk reinforces Maggi ‘Cook the Difference’ vision to make a positive difference through wholesome home-made cooking.
This has become an annual Ramadhan event for us and we are honoured to share the joy with Rumah Titian Kaseh this year.”
Commenting on Maggi’s Ramadhan event, Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad, said, “It means a great deal to us to celebrate ‘buka puasa’ with the residents from Rumah Titian Kaseh, especially during this auspicious month.
“Today’s event is a great opportunity for us to embrace the spirit of giving, bring some cheer to the home and also to spend time with the residents.”
Apart from this, to impart good nutrition habits, an interactive nutrition session was organised for the children.
Led by Nurul Iliani Ahmad, Category Nutrition Manager, Nestlé Malaysia, the kids were educated on food groups and the food pyramid through fun games during the session.
To protect the environment, Nestlé also took the opportunity during the visit to conduct a session to educate the children of RTK on the importance of recycling.
In that session, Nestlé’s employees worked with the kids to make creative decorations for the residence using recycled materials, including promotional materials, cardboard boxes and plastic bottles.
Maggi will also be partnering with RTK to sell arts and crafts made from recycled items by the home. These items will be sold and the funds provided to RTK.
The home will also be selling baked goods in light of the festive season.
According to Hajah Sharifah Binti Haji Adlan – founder of RTK, “We were thrilled to have the team from Maggi and Nestlé join us here today for this activity and to spend time with the children and other residents.
“This was a wonderful occasion to bring people together during
the fasting month and we will definitely cherish this special event.”
