Shah Alam, 6 December 2018 – 7-Eleven Malaysia, the nation’s top convenience chain store alongside with NGOHub Asia recently held a joyous Deepavali celebration with the community of Ebenezer Home, Shah Alam.
Incepted in year 2010, the home is dedicated to the elderly, disabled, mentally ill and less fortunate by founder Kavitha Subramaniam. Together with her husband, Kavitha started Ebenezer Home with the intention of providing loving care and freedom to those who seek shelter there. From the humble days of being a shelter for only 3 occupants, Ebenezer Home has flourished to 2 housing units with a total of 39 residents, segregated by gender.
Before the celebration began, the volunteers got to know the occupants through a ‘gotong-royong’ session, cleaning and tidying up the venue for the feast. An afternoon tea spread, prepared by the volunteers, included a delectable combination of traditional Indian appetizers and desserts. To further excite the community at Ebenezer Home, 7-Eleven Malaysia also prepared goodie bags containing snacks and daily essentials to be handed out.
7-Eleven Malaysia General Manager of Marketing, Ronan Lee said, “We are fortunate to be living in a multi-cultural nation, where celebrations of each other’s culture happen often. Today, we are honored to be celebrating the Festival of Light with the lovely community of Ebenezer Home. Seeing their faces light up with glee is especially rewarding to us and knowing that our efforts have positively impacted them motivates us to continue living up to our tagline of Always There For You.”
Ebenezer Home is currently seeking for financial support from the public to further expand the community and securing more facilities to ease the lives of the less fortunate living there. For more information on how to support Ebenezer Home, contact 016-355 2084 or visit their Facebook page.
