Online PR News – 27-August-2012 – Mumbai/Maharashtra – Foundation chairman Datin Umayal Eswaran and FNHI president Raja Datin Zuraida Raja Mansur distributed duit raya and hampers to the patients.

Umayal said it was part of the foundation's efforts to reach out to the community and share the festive joy with the less fortunate.

"Ramadan is a time to reflect on the blessings we enjoy in life. Therefore it is good to share with the less fortunate.

"This year, we are happy to collaborate with FHNI to bring smiles to the faces of patients, especially the children."

Umayal said over the past two years the foundation had been handing out goodies to welfare recipients.

"Since our inception in 2000, we have been involved in community activities focusing on education, community development, arts and culture, as well as the environment."

Raja Zuraida said: "Festivals are a time for joy, togetherness and celebration.

"While most families are celebrating it, it is just another ordinary day for the patients in IJN.

"Therefore, we are thankful to Vijayaratnam Foundation and QNET for their support to let the patients know that they too are remembered during the festivities," she said.
