It was a joyous occasion. The Keledang Club officials including The President, Vice President, Committee members, club members and their respective families descended upon The Darussalam Orphanage Home in Simpang Pulai, Ipoh to join the 57 Darussalam kids at the Iftar session last Tuesday evening.

Such event has been the yearly ritual since last year. This year was kind of special because this would be the final year we are having the Iftar at this temporary place.

The Club has adopted the whole orphanage and will be relocating them to a new modern complex in Kampong Melayu, Ipoh by end of the year, insyaallah.

The new complex will be built on a plot of land donated by a club member. The total cost of construction and facilities estimated at RM 600,000 was raised from members and well wishers contributions through Yayasan Bakti Keledang, our Club's foundation.

The evening dishes sponsored by a club member and prepared by the staff were simply delicious and tasty. All of us including the Darussalam kids had a hearty meal.

After the Maghrib prayers, it was time for our Club President to update the progress of club's project to the delight of the Darussalam kids followed by the distribution of the 'duit raya' packets.

The club's doyen, Tan Sri Ahmad Azizzuddin started the ball rolling to the joy of all. The Keledang ladies were not to be outdone.

Even Muzill, the LT Watch Gallery owner and the club's youngest member dug deep into his pocket to hand out the 'duit raya' packets. Indeed this Hari Raya comes early for this 57 Darussalam kids…
