Fifty ladies mostly senior citizens and single parents from the three villages had received the gifts and donations from Rohaya Mustapa as the muslimat representative of Surau As-Siddiq.

The presentation of the gifts was held at Kampung Tanjung Pao Mosque and amongst those present were the Imam Haji Aziz and local authority representatives.

She said, donations were also handed to a kindergarten and the Kampung Tanjung Pao Mosque. The Imam and helpers of the mosque had also received gifts from Surau As-Siddiq as the organiser of the mission.
“Majority of the people in the three villages are poor and most of them are rubber tappers and fishermen. The three villages have been chosen as majority of the people are “Asnaf” and they are our target group.

“This trip was organised to strengthen the relationship amongst the muslimat from Surau As-Siddiq in BTHO and muslims in the two neighbouring countries,” she told MWN on the trip to Satun. – Malaysia World New
