The Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB) handed over tithe money to victims of house fires at the Ministry of Religious Affairs building.
Acting Secretary of MUIB Haji Abdul Aziz bin Haji Akop presented BND1,800 and school equipment to Haji Manan bin Haji Yusof’s family and Azmin bin Haji Yusof’s family whose house was destroyed in the September 30 fire.
The victims are staying temporarily at a relative’s house in the same village. MUIB hoped that such donations will ease their burden.
