Melaka, Malaysia, 9th January 2013 – It was a delighted day for youth of Salvation Army Melaka Special Children’s Home after their wishes for bicycles, Barbie dolls, remote-controlled cars, educational toys and clothing were fulfilled.

The gifts were presented to 100 youth, aged 3 to 43 by the resort committee members at Salvation Army. The session was held with Director of Marketing Communications, Connie Chin, Senior Marketing Communications Executive, Tee Mei Fong and Senior IT Executive, Lai Ming Hoe presenting individual gifts to each youth.

The excitement lit up the air as the youth couldn’t wait much longer to open their presents. Most importantly, the smiles on their faces reflect contented hearts which means a lot to all donors.

These gifts were contributed by the resort guests, resort staff and public through the ‘Wish upon a Star’ Corporate Social Responsibility project. The 100 youth from Salvation Army had earlier been invited to pen down their wishes on the wish cards which were hang on the Green Christmas tree which was made of newspapers situated at the resort’s lobby from 10th December 2012 to 8th January 2013.
