32 children were treated to KFC Buka Puasa on 25 April 2022. In a joint project by Micron Memory Malaysia and Rotary Club of Bandar Sungai Petani, we visited Rumah Permata Kasih in Permatang Pauh and presented RM 5,000 worth of groceries, fresh vegetables, stand fans and a printer. The children, all girls aged 5 and 6 years old, received a set of tudung and jubah as well as duit Raya. The project was donated by Micron and their staff. Micron staff and Rotarians rolled up their sleeves to bring the items to the home. The smiles on the faces of the children tell the story.

Together, We Empower
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the education system to move to online teaching. We are driven to support and ensure that these young minds keep learning, so that they can continue to strive, so that their dreams are not halted, so that they have a better future. Empowering those who have big dreams to achieve great things — that’s what People of Action do. Learn more at RotarySungaiPetani.org.
