Two Great Friends and a Charity
No Monday blues for 100 children at the cancer ward in General Hospital Kuala Lumpur as they were greeted with smiles and gifts of Tectic toys from 2 great friends, Zenofar Fathima (Entrepreneur & Philanthropist) and Rahul Dev (Award winning Bollywood actor). The initiative is a Corporate Social Responsibility Programme (CSR) as part of FoodAddict – “A journey of good food and great health” campaign to promote healthy eating amongst Malaysians and Middle Easterners, especially those with strict dietary complications due to cancer and other illnesses.
Both can empathize with the situation as the duo share similar experiences of having a close loved one diagnosed with the dreadful disease. Zenofar, a mother of 3 beautiful children has her own mother currently undergoing treatment for Breast Cancer. Rahul on the other hand, is a single father of 1 son after losing his beloved wife to cancer. They hope that this initiative will help spread awareness of healthy eating and the importance of living well with family support. The 2 friends agree that “Nothing is more important. We should never take health for granted and family always comes first”.
