PETALING JAYA, May 27 — Menteri Besar Selangor (Incorporated) and the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) have donated RM6,000 to four fire victims and their families along Jalan SS5A/15 in Kelana Jaya yesterday.

Ahmad Azri said his visit was to check on the families as well as inspect their homes, being informed by Seri Setia state assemblyman Halimey Abu Bakar.
“Today we handed over RM3,000 in aid to each family, with RM300 as an advance. The remaining RM2,700 will be provided later once their documentation is completed,” he said.
Ahmad Azri added that MBI is also seeking assistance in repairing the homes from the Selangor Zakat Board (LZS) for Muslim victims, as well as suitable help for other victims.
Meanwhile, Mohamad Azhan said MBPJ presented RM3,000 in cash and dried food items including rice and eggs to the victims and their families.
