Helping the Asnaf Recover from the Pandemic
Seeing how the state has rallied to help its people cope with COVID-19 has been inspiring and humbling for me. Recently the Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS) contributed another RM1.8 million to help out asnaf suffering from health issues. It was distributed to patient welfare funds between 17 hospitals.
Medical assistance is only one initiative of LZS’s assistance for the unfortunate to soften the impact of COVID-19. During the MCO alone, Lembaga Zakat Selangor distributed RM232.2 million. RM11.8 million going to 27,536 recipients under their COVID-19 special assistance. It is hoped that these numbers Some may question the work of zakat institutions but these numbers tell another story.
The pandemic may be more painful for some of us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t heal together. Know more about the initiatives by LZS by visiting www.zakatselangor.com.my
