JULY 1, MIRI – During the recent Ramadan month, SK Pujut Corner held a ‘Nur Kasih’ (Light of Love) event whereby students from needy families received gifts from generous donors.
Among the donors was 4th Miri Company (Sponsoring Church – Grace Methodist) of The Boys’ Brigade in Malaysia who gave away gift vouchers to 20 students ages 7 to 12 years.
“We are privileged to be able to participate in this event as Muslims fast to bring the faithful closer to God and also being reminded of the suffering of the less fortunate; donating to charities and feeding the hungry,” said Capt. Roseline Lee. “We hope our small gesture can bring some joy to the recipient families,” she added.
4th Miri Company, supported by their church Social Concerns Ministry, is active in community outreach. Last Christmas they partnered Miri Marriot Resort and Spa in their ‘Make A Wish’ Christmas Tree project and also participated in the Miri District Boys’ Brigade Love Box raising 260 presents for Tudan needy residents.
Visibly elated, SK Pujut Corner Principal Cik Suriyati Binti Amit thanked the donors and expressed her appreciation. She also thanked her staff for doing a good job and encouraged all the students to excel in their studies. 4th Miri Company is open to all Boys aged from 6 to 19. Come and join us today! The details of our Weekly Parade are as follows:
Day: Saturdays, 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm
Venue: Grace Methodist Church, Lot 2853, Jln Baiduri 6, Pujut 3A, Miri
