The Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB) presented BND1,272 aid from MUIB Zakat funds to two Zakat recipients from the Belait District in a ceremony at the Belait District Religious Office hall.
Acting Head of Religious Officer in the Belait District Mohd Noorsoffian bin Haji Yahya @ Yahia handed over the Zakat funds and the items.
The first recipient, a victim of a house fire Ridwan, 41, and his family of three, received BND800 (BND200 for each family member). Their house in Kampong Tunggulian, Mukim Liang was affected by fire earlier this month. The second recipient was Rosli bin Mohamad, residing in Kampong Sungai Taring Lumut. He received the Agihan Zakat Modal Berusaha in the form of fishing equipment worth BND472.
It is hoped that the aid will help lessen their burden and improve their livelihood.
