100 less fortunate children and old folks from Asrama Darul Salam and The Rohingya Society had a blissful night on the 22nd of July 2017 as 24 committee members of ConvoFest 2017 celebrated them in all festivity under "Raya with Orphans" event.
The event was aimed at sharing the festive spirit with underprivileged community in Ipoh as well as creating a sense of belonging and care amongst the community.
The opening ceremony at Rohingya Society, Ipoh, Perak was officiated by Datin Normah (Manager of the Rohingya Society) while Abi Norizan Razali (Manager of Darul Salam) officiated at Rumah Anak Yatim Darul Salam, Ipoh, Perak. UTP was represented by HICOM of ConvoFest 2017, Muhammad Rizman Abdul Rahman and Prem Raj Thiruchelvan.
