The less fortunate are not forgotten during festive season. LITRAK Group of Companies, as a philanthropist entity and the concessionaire of Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP) as well as Sistem Penyuraian Trafik KL Barat (SPRINT) Highway, brought the joy of Festival of Lights to 35 children from Rumah Kebajikan Anbu Illam and Rumah Kebajikan Karunai Illam.

En. Sazally Saidi, P.J.K., Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Mr. Richard Lim, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of LITRAK Group gave away goodies bags and Deepavali tokens to the children followed by a Hi-Tea session. The children were evidently excited on receiving the gifts.

To date, Rumah Kebajikan Anbu Illam and Rumah Kebajikan Karunai Illam are managed by Persatuan Saiva Siddhanta Malaysia. They are non-profit organizations that mainly operate on public donations. Currently, these Homes are in urgent need for committed volunteers to tutor and provide motivations to the students. Dedicated volunteers and members are also required to help in manning and administering both Homes.

Furthermore, in the spirit of Deepavali celebration, LITRAK and SPRINT will be offering discounts of 60 cent and 20 cent for all classes of vehicles on Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP) and Lebuhraya SPRINT respectively on the 10th November 2015 from 12.01 am to 11.59 pm.
