Cosway’s CEO, Dr Alice represented Cosway to hand out goodies to a number of children from the Selangor and Federal Territory Spastic Children’s Association, pre-school children from Sekolah Kebangsaan Pandan Indah Kuala Lumpur and the mualafs from the Hidayah Centre Foundation. We also had an amazing time ‘berbuka puasa’ with the children as well as other guests.

To further spread joy and put smiles on the children’s faces, they were given the opportunity to unleash their creativity the ‘Picasso-way’ in the colouring competition. The event continued with live music and dance performances, where the children were entertained by the beautiful singing and happy dance moves of the volunteers!
