THE Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB) held a Zakat handout totalling BND2,200 to victims of a collapsed house in Kampong Lurong Dalam to lessen their burdens at the Ministry of Religious Affairs building yesterday.

Acting Secretary of MUIB Haji Abdul Aziz bin Haji Akop presented BND200 to Nor Rysma bin Md Idris and BND1,000 to Hajah Suzana binti Haji Suana, the spouse of the house owner along with four of their children who each received BND200 with school supplies.

Meanwhile, Md Azerman bin Nor Rysma received BND200 and Md Azme bin Nor Rysma along with his wife and two young children received BND200 each totalling BND800.

The assistance was taken from the Asnaf Zakat Fakir Miskin allocation and is hoped to ease the burden of the family. MUIB hoped that the incident will make the family more aware of safety for their home and its occupants.
