By Sheeda Fathil

SHAH ALAM, Feb 17 — Parents of children with special needs (OKU) under the age of 18 are encouraged to apply for the Bantuan Khas Anak Istimewa Selangor (Anis) scheme, which offers benefits up to RM5,000 for each family.

Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said registration for the aid scheme had recently opened on Monday.

“Especially for Selangor citizens, each family can receive four types of aid which include food and additional needs, purchase or repair of equipment, medicine and special education.

“The state government has allocated RM3.25 million in the 2021 Selangor Budget for the implementation of the OKU empowerment programme. Register now at www.anis.yawas.my,” he said on Facebook.

Applicants can register and check on their status via the website. Assistance will be channelled after application is approved.
