Donations to 29 representatives of orphans and less fortunate individuals were made by the Muslimah Group of Kampong Sungai Liang yesterday in a ceremony at the Kampong Sungai Liang Mosque.

Head Imam of the mosque Zulhilmi bin Jefri said the programme Mulianya Berabagi is held annually since 2019 by the Muslimah Group of the mosque to aid those in need, especially during the holy month of Ramadhan.

“Together with the support from the Mosque Affairs Department, the programme has since continued to be conducted each year, not only in the Belait District but also to other districts across the nation,” he added. He said he hoped the support for the programme will continue in the future.

Mosque Affairs Officer in the Belait District Haji Haslan bin Haji Shahbudin acknowledged the effort made by the Muslimah Group in maintaining the programme.

He said maintaining and organising such a programme annually has its share of challenges, and as such, praised the Muslimah for finding the time to aid those in need.
