MAGGI® Spreads Ramadhan Joy to Charitable Home

Maggi takes part in spreading the Joy Of Ramadhan
In the spirit of the fasting month, MAGGI® treated the residents of Rumah Titian Kaseh (RTK), a charitable home for over 130 children, disabled persons and single mothers to a special buka puasa meal and MAGGI® bubur lambuk. I dont usually share charitable stories on my blog, but since i had Maggi for Sahur today, i just had to share the news out! 

Find out how to prepare delicious MAGGI® bubur lambuk at the end of this post!

On a sunny Monday on 13th May 2019, employees from MAGGI® and Nestlé Malaysia volunteered their time for this initiative, which kicked off with the preparation of the famous MAGGI® bubur lambuk by MAGGI® chefs together with caretakers from RTK. Dang, talking about Bubur lambuk, i havent event gotten the chance to get a bit of it yet. I guess tonight's buka would most likely bubur lambuk for me. Hehe. Traditionally during Ramadhan, Bubur Lambuk is commonly distributed and is made with a mixture of fresh ingredients and spices to create a delicious and healthy meal for buka puasa.

To spruce up the home in time to celebrate the Aidilfitri festivities, the Nestlé employees including the MAGGI® team conducted a gotong royong session, which saw the volunteers help brighten up the walls with a fresh coat of paint too.

Ms Geetha Balakrishna, Business Executive Officer, MAGGI®, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad added, “Cooking and distributing bowls of nutritious MAGGI® bubur lambuk reinforces MAGGI®’s ‘Cook the Difference’ vision to make a positive difference through wholesome home-made cooking. This has become an annual Ramadhan event for us and we are honoured to share the joy with Rumah Titian Kaseh this year.”

Commenting on MAGGI®’s Ramadhan event, Mr Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad, said, “It means a great deal to us to celebrate ‘buka puasa’ with the residents from Rumah Titian Kaseh, especially during this auspicious month. Today’s event is a great opportunity for us to embrace the spirit of giving, bring some cheer to the home and also to spend time with the residents.”

Apart from this, to impart good nutrition habits, an interactive nutrition session was organised for the children. Led by Nurul Iliani Ahmad, Category Nutrition Manager, Nestlé Malaysia, the kids were educated on food groups and the food pyramid through fun games during the session.

To protect the environment, Nestlé also took the opportunity during the visit to conduct a session to educate the children of RTK on the importance of recycling. In that session, Nestlé’s employees worked with the kids to make creative decorations for the residence using recycled materials, including promotional materials, cardboard boxes and plastic bottles.

MAGGI® will also be partnering with RTK to sell arts and crafts made from recycled items by the home. These items will be sold and the funds provided to RTK. The home will also be selling baked goodsness in light of the festive season.

This was a wonderful occasion to bring people together during the fasting month and we will definitely cherish this special event.”
