Simplysiti president and founder Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin and Puan Sri Cecilia Lim, wife of Genting Malaysia Bhd chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, played host to paediatric heart patients from Institut Jantung Negara as well as their families at Resorts World Genting. They were accompanied by over 50 KOLs, media & invited guests during the event.
"We are thankful that four patients have recovered recently to come to this event. One child is still recovering, and we hope to bring him another time. We also would like to thank Resorts World Genting for sponsoring this whole day outing. It means so much to these children and their families as they have not been to the resort. Having to dine at Ed’s Diner and to play at SkyTropolis plus watch Imaginatricks are privileges and a dream come true for so many of them. At SIMPLYSITI, our hearts go all out to the less fortunate and we are very grateful to have partners who support us,” said Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza.
The five special children selected for the SIMPLYSITI Di Hati 2019 campaign were Siah Wan Ying, Nurul Syamimi Binti Ahmad Paridon, Auni Insyirah Binti Muhammad Firdaus Hilmi, Nur Auni Mardhiyah Binti Ahmad & Ramesh Rao. All of them had recently recovered from heart complications at Institut Jantung Negara. For most of them, it was their first trip to Resorts World Genting.
Close to Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza’s heart, SIMPLYSITI was set up by Malaysia’s most loved figure with the interest to raise funds but most importantly to spread love and joy to the underprivileged children. Since 2011, SIMPLYSITI has managed to raise up to RM200,000 to finance surgical cost of 14 underprivileged paediatric heart patients. Having been successful in most of its campaigns, SIMPLYSITI carried out another fund raising recently to help five paediatric heart patients with the support from IJN Foundation. The full funds raised by this campaign will be announced at the final event in early February.
