Twenty-eight (28) children from Our Family Home, Kajang had an early Christmas cheer this year as Sungei Wang Plaza hosted an fun-filled events for them recently.
The underprivileged children comprises of 15 females and 13 males, aged between 10 and 18 years old were invited to Sungei Wang Plaza in conjunction with the mall’s Christmas celebration themed Cheer-y Merry Christmas.
The event kicked off with a shopping spree at Watson’s whereby the children were allowed to choose one of their own favourite item from the personal care store without limitation of price. The chosen item varies from fluffy soft toys to toiletries, perfumes, skincare sets, body care sets and many more.
Following to the shopping spree, the children were taken to the Concourse Level for a special preview of Cheer4Christmas Performance at the Concourse Level and goody bag presentation. The goody bags comprises of chocolates, snacks, mug and CD holder were presented by Mr K K Lim, Senior Manager of Promotions & Public Relations of Sungei Wang Plaza and Mr Faiz Shah, Senior Marketing Manager of Watson’s Personal Care Stores Sdn Bhd.
The shopping trip to Sungei Wang Plaza finally ended with hair wash and hair cut for all children at APT Professional Team, one of the hair salons and hair academies in Sungei Wang Plaza. The children looked neater and fresher with their new haircut and went home with smiling faces.
Three siblings Peter Lee (8), Jane Lee (9) and Anne Lee (10) five enjoyed their first to Sungei Wang Plaza and had so much fun with their friends. “We never had the opportunity to choose our own favourite items at any personal care store or get a haircut and hair wash at a salon. We also enjoyed the cheerleading performance because the stunts were really breathtaking and awesome”, ended the siblings.
According to John Santana, Our Family Home Administrator, the shopping trip to Sungei Wang Plaza cheered the children in many ways. “At Our Family Home, we live as a family regardless of our races. Today the outing is really fun as we treat this shopping trip as our family outing whereby the older children will look after their younger sisters and brothers. They help each other to choose their favourite items at Watson’s and they eat together as one big family during the lunch reception. They also complimented each other on their new hairstyle after the hair cut at APT.
I am so thankful to Sungei Wang Plaza for organising a memorable trip for these underprivileged children who came from broken homes, dysfunctional families and poor families”, ended John.
