IT WAS a meaningful day for 250 children and single parents as Resorts World Genting hosted a day of fun-filled activities and performances at the Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort in conjunction with United Nations Universal Children’s Day Celebration on Nov 20.

Among those present were Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun, Genting (M) Bhd public relations and communications vice -president Katherine Chew and Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort vice-president Ruddin Salim.

The event aimed to enhance the relationship between the company, its employees and the community by fostering caring and sharing values in serving the community.

It was held at the Awana Genting team building grounds and at the longhouse specially built by Awana Genting.

The celebration kicked off at 9am with the appearance of Resorts World Genting’s mascots — Tabby, Allie and friends — along with the Awana Genting Highlands dancing troupe.

The children, aged from five to 12 years old, came from various states and villages in Malaysia.
For most of the children and their parents, it was their first visit to Genting Highlands and they were specially selected by a team from the ministry as all are from the hardcore poor categroy.

Seven telematch activities were held for the children and their parents to complete together and were designed to establish a loving bond between single parents and children from different backgrounds.

The event then continued with a traditional Indian dance performance by children from the School of Nadananjali led by two young performers from Teluk Intan, Rhivakshini, 5, and Tina Chew,12.

The guests were also taken for a trip to Genting’s theme parks.
