Agong presents MAIWP’s RM1.8 mln donations to military veterans

KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 — The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah today presented donations worth RM1.8 million from the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Council (MAIWP) to 6,000 Malaysian Armed Forces veterans.

The donations, which came in the form of cash and essential food items, were presented in conjunction with the Pengurniaan Sumbangan Ampun Kurnia event held at the Federal Territory Mosque here, which aimed at alleviating the burden of the veterans who are mostly in the B40 group.

The presence of Al-Sultan Abdullah to grace and hand over the donations to 10 representatives of the veterans clearly reflected his respect for all former servicemen who have contributed so much for the country and his concern for the wellbeing of those who need help to ensure their survival.

The event was organised by MAIWP and the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (JAWI) in collaboration with the Istana Negara, Ministry of Defense and a non-governmental organisation, Bantu-Bantu Malaysia.

Also present were Senior Minister (Security Cluster) and Defense Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Ahmad Marzuk Shaary, MAIWP chairman Datuk Seri Syed Hussien AlHabshee and JAWI director, Mohd Ajib Ismail.

This was the third event graced by the King outside Istana Negara since the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) on March 18.
