Rozie Shafie and I went to the Pondok in Lekir to confirm the number of children and teenagers who are eligible for our Program Beli Baju Raya this year. We include orphans, the destitute, the poor, handicapped and muallaf who are 18 and below. There are altogether 37 comprising 20 orphans (9 boys 11 girls), 8 fakir miskin (4 boys and 4 girls) and 9 muallaf (5 boys and 4 girls).
Including Adam and Fatimah (the 2 siblings with cerebral palsy), the total is 39.
I was initially given the figure of 25. Instead of RM1800, I now need at least RM2700. Thank goodness there is so many more days to Syawal. I am sure people will come to my assistance next week.
