“We hope to receive good response from the public towards the Sunshine September campaign. With a platform like this, there is no better time to be informed about autism and what they can do on their part to contribute. Suria KLCC has also done a fantastic job of lining up activities, games and performances by NASOM Maestros to create better understanding about autism. So we look forward to encouraging support,” said Chan.
