Ramadan: Celebrate the month of giving with JAWI
30th April 2019
Ramadan is synonymous with the act of giving. Muslims, globally and locally, strive to elevate their faith to the next levels, in a month where every good deed is guaranteed more than tenfold the rewards.
This year’s Ramadan has seen a history made for ERA, when we were gifted the opportunity to donate an amount of rice for charity around the city of Kuala Lumpur. This programme was originally inspired by JAWI’s ‘Rice ATM’ initiative which saw the first of these machines installed at Al-Akram Mosque in Kampung Datuk Keramat, Kuala Lumpur.
With JAWI’s assistance, 4,000 packs of 5kg ERA rice have been distributed to mosques around the city. Reaching 20,000 kg in weight, this supply is expected to benefit more than a thousand families throughout the fasting month, and subsequently help ease their burdens.
This charity event is a testament to ERA’s dedication in sharing quality food with as many Malaysians as possible. “Happiness is best shared with loved ones”. Staying true to this, we hope that this activity will continue to be our tradition for years to come.
