 It is that time of the year that my friends and I carry out our annual activity to buy Raya clothes for the orphans and needy children at the Kompleks Pendidikan Manabi'ul Ulum.  It took us about two weeks to collect enough money to buy clothes for the 28 children and teenagers. We also sent money to two disabled children who are from Selangor.
With money in hand, we went to the Abu Hanifah Store in Manjung with the orphans and needy to buy their festive clothes.
 Munirah Balqis, Norbazuaniza and Hajah Rozie came to help.

 Nancy, Baz and Balqis checked out the clothes at the store
 Izdihar who is having his semester break from university helped to ferry the girls to the store.

 Azizol, another of my former students, helped to ferry the boys to the store.

 Rosni also checked out the Baju Kurung at the store
 When I retire, hopefully Norma, Rosni  plus Baz and Fauzana will want to carry on this annual Ramadan programme.  This activity was started by Hajah Kamariah and I nine years ago.
