The event, held at the resort’s premises, commenced at 6:30pm, extending heartfelt hospitality to the children. The evening unfolded with a series of activities aimed at fostering joy, inclusivity, and the spirit of Ramadan.

Among the highlights of the evening were the traditional breaking of fast meal, followed by Maghrib prayers led by esteemed religious leaders. A special mention goes to Cikgu Zalila, Penolong Kanan Pedidikan Khas from SMK Tunku Putra who arranged for one of the special students to mark the breaking of fast, adding a poignant touch to the occasion.
