The Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah (RSB) Mosque yesterday handed over contributions to 31 underprivileged individuals in Kampong Sungai Akar.

Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Ali bin Haji Apong attended the event in his capacity as Patron of RSB Mosque, and also presented donations to the recipients.

Some BND6,600 in public donation was distributed to the recipients via a drive-thru system at the mosque premises, while recipient Jefri bin Abdullah, a Muslim convert, received the donation at his residence.

The event is an annual activity to ease the financial burden of the underprivileged during Ramadhan.
