KUALA LUMPUR, 5 DECEMBER 2012 – FAREEDA Presents Malam Amal Tahajjud Cinta is an exclusive charity dinner showcase that will open the social calendar of 2013.

“The plight of people living with HIV is a cause that is always dear to my heart. My involvement in Malaysian AIDS Foundation’s Red Ribbon Celebrity Programme ever since it was initiated in 2009 has opened my eyes to the realities of HIV & AIDS. Insya-Allah (God willing), I will continue to pledge my contribution in any way I can in the future. This is a gift right from my heart,” Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza explained her motivation to contribute to the charity programme.
