We have set aside some allocation of zakat for this program to help purchase selected household appliances for the daily use of the Asnaf students and their families. Each Asnaf student and the family will receive a rice cooker, a stand fan and a stove. Through this initiative, we want to provide convenience and help facilitate the Asnaf students and their families on daily tasks.”
