In the spirit of giving and sharing this Ramadan, Sutera Harbour Resort hosted its annual Breaking of Fast gathering recently with clients, local press and under-privileged children at the Grand Ballroom of The Magellan Sutera Resort on Friday, 24 June 2016. This is one of our many Corporate Social Responsibility projects to foster the spirit of unity and understanding between the government and corporate sectors as well as the personnel from the Resort.
This annual tradition of breaking fast with our clients and press members enables us to show our heartfelt appreciation for their continued loyalty and support, especially in this season of blessing and reflection. We also enjoyed the time to meet and network with our guests, share a few light moments and of course, partake in the sumptous Ramadan delights together with 30 children from the Madrasah Al-Hikmat Kampung Nelayan Likas.
All guests were treated to a special Ghazal and Nasyid performance by Kumpulan Budayawan. But the highlight of the evening were the happy smiles from the children who received Hari Raya giveaways from Sutera Harbour Resort as well as Yayasan Nur Jauhar, a foundation founded by His Excellency Tun Datuk Seri Panglima Dr Haji Juhar Bin Datuk Haji Mahiruddin and His consort YABhg Toh Puan Datuk Seri Panglima Hajah Norlidah Binti Tan Sri Datuk R.M. Jasni.
Madrasah Al-Hikmat was established in March 2005 in a makeshift wooden building which was used as a prayer hall in Kampung Nelayan, Likas. Up until May 2011, the school has up to 400 students between the age of 6 and 15 years, where the students are divided into several classes; pre-school to primary 5. Due to the limited classroom and space to cater for these students, the school runs 3 sessions a day for 2.5 hours each only.
The Guest of Honour of the event was YABhg Toh Puan Datuk Seri Panglima Hajah Norlidah Binti Tan Sri Datuk R.M. Jasni. Also in attendance was YB Datuk Seri Panglima Masidi Manjun Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Sabah, YB Datuk Radin Malleh Minister of Rural Development Sabah, YB Datuk Teo Chee Kang Minister of Special Task, YB Datuk Haji Syed Abas Syed Ali Speaker of Sabah State Legislative Assembly, YB Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Sukarti in Wakiman Secretary of State of Sabah and YBhg Datuk Yeo Boon Hai Mayor of KK City. The Director of Sutera Harbour Resort Mr Kenneth Goi and his Deputy Chief Executive Officer Mr Gerard Tan welcomed the guests of honour with the rest of the Resort’s Executive Committee.
YABhg Toh Puan Datuk Seri Panglima Hajah Norlidah Binti Tan Sri Datuk R.M. Jasni also handed over a mock cheque donation to Puan Amizah Baharudin, a committee member of the Madrasah Al-Hikmat.
We take this opportunity to thank everyone who made this event a success and wish all SALAM RAMADAN from Sutera Harbour Resort!
