The Ministry of Education (MoE) on Monday distributed sacrificial meat in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidiladha celebration.

Around 35 participants joined in the sacrificial rite. Five cows were slaughtered and distributed among 150 recipients.

To ensure the practice of social distancing throughout the event, in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health (MoH) amid the containment phase of the COVID-19 outbreak, the meats were delivered by officials from the ministry to the recipients at their home in Kampong Menglait, Kampong Burong Pingai, Kampong Anggrek Desa, Kampong Pulaie, Kampong Orang Kaya Besar Imas, Kampong Serusop, Kampong Delima Satu, Kampong Pancha Delima and Kampong Mata-Mata.

The event aimed to strengthen the spirit of cooperation and ties among MoE staff members.

This year’s Korban ceremony was co-organised by the Department of Examination and International Affairs Unit, under the MoE.
