KUCHING, April 25: Hari Raya Aidilfitri came early for 170 ‘asnaf’ children within the Kuching South City Council (MBKS) area, who each received RM150 and a box of dates.

MBKS mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng handed over the assistance during the ‘Ihya Ramadan MBKS Bersama Komuniti 2022’ programme held at the council’s lobby today.

Speaking to reporters after the ceremony, Wee said it is a meaningful programme to ensure that those in need are not being left out.

He added that the children were selected by the surau and mosque committee in their respective areas and that the financial aid is to encourage them to commit to their studies.

During the event, financial aid was also presented to 17 surau and mosques, where each surau and mosque was given RM700 and two boxes of dates. — DayakDaily
