In conjunction with the ‘Festival of Lights’ celebration and as part of Seri Mutiara Development’s community engagement programme, the company hosted a Diwali Charity “Movie Nite” for a group of children and caretakers from Shepherd’s Centre Foundation, Semenyih, Selangor on October 30, 2018.
Prior to the movie screening, all 45 children and caretakers were treated to a sumptuous dinner accompanied by employees who volunteered at the event. During the dinner session, Ms Poh Lin, Lim, Senior Manager of Corporate Affairs, Branding & Communications, represented the company by giving a short festive address and presenting a token of appreciation and contribution by Seri Mutiara Development and its employees to Shepherd’s Centre Foundation.
Close to 30 employees were present at the movie screening and expressed their appreciation to the company for the event which allowed for staff participation and community engagement. The selected movie for the night was “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”, a family-friendly Adventure/Comedy movie described as a fun and scary movie for kids but one that does not actually terrify them.
Shepherd’s Centre Foundation was established in 1993 and is a foster home for orphans and underprivileged children where rejected and neglected children are loved and cared for. At present, there are 65 children being cared for at the home, aged between 6 and 18 years.
