The Brunei Council on Social Welfare (MKM) recently celebrated the certification of seven more of its tahfiz students as Hafizah.
MKM had managed a school for Rohingyan refugees at Unchiprang Refugee Camp, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh since early 2019.
It currently has 500 students, 100 of which are in its tahfiz programme.
The current batch of the tahfiz programme is all females from the aged from 13 to 16 years old, bringing the number of certified hafiz or hafizah produced by MKM School to 16.
Aside from running this school for Rohingyan refugees since 2019, MKM had been assisting poor Bangladeshis through its many regional outreach programme since 2015.
It has built more than 800 tubewells with each providing water to around 100 needy poor Bangladeshi villagers.
The organisation has also built 14 mosques, provided iftar to 1,000 poor Bangladeshis per day for every day of Ramadhan, organised Korban ceremonies at every Hari Raya Aidiladha celebration slaughtering an average of 400 goats and 40 cows per year as well as having frequent food distributions to homeless Bangladeshis.
“Our continuous assistance to the needy Bangladeshis as well as Rohingyan refugees are only made possible through the continuous and generous support from the public,” said MKM’s President Yusof bin Halim.
