Floods: 105 UniSZA students receive Jakim donation

KUALA NERUS, Dec 21 — A total of 105 Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA) students here, who were victims of the first wave of floods last month, received contributions from the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) today.

Jakim deputy director-general (Operations) Ruslan Said the contributions, amounting to RM60,748, were presented by Jakim, as the coordinator of the handing over of the contribution, with other agencies under the jurisdiction of the Minister’s portfolio in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs).

“This donation is in line with the Madani government’s desire to ensure all victims get help wherever they are, according to our ability,” he told reporters after handing over the donations here today.

Ruslan said that yesterday, he presented RM146,000 worth of donations to 200 flood victims in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan, as well as nine Islamic schools and tahfiz in the state which were hit by floods.

“Insya-Allah, this assistance will be given to victims of disasters in other states, not just to flood victims,” he said

Apart from Jakim, others who also contributed were the Malaysian Islamic Economic Development Foundation (YaPEIM), Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (YADIM), Tabung Haji, the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Council (MAIWP) and TV AlHijrah television channel.
