The month of Ramadhan teaches the Muslim ummah to be more caring to the needy. More than 100 orphans comprising pre-school and Year One pupils of the religious schools in the Brunei Muara District received donations at the Tahlil and Breaking of the Fast ceremony with orphans. The ceremony took place at the Rizqun International Hotel in Gadong, 11th May afternoon.
The donations were presented by Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman, the Minister of Religious Affairs.
