Yeoh gives RM5,000 to surau - The Star

Jun 17, 2008

Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh presented RM5,000 from her state funds allocation to the Surau al-Muhajirin at the Angsana Flats in USJ 1 recently.

“This is to enable the surau to organise holiday camps for the Muslim children.

“There isn't a playground at the flats and it is not advisable to have the children playing all over the place,” said Yeoh.

A helping hand: Hazlan (second from left) receiving the cheque from Yeoh. Looking on are (from left) Suhailah, Zulkanian and Yeoh’s special assistant Timothy Ho.

The surau chairman, Zulkanian Ismail, imam Hazlan Omar and a teacher from Kafa Integrasi USJ 9, Suhailah Zolkapli received the cheque from Yeoh at her office.

“About 70 children aged between six and 12 took part in our three-day camp during the recently-concluded school break. It was mainly to instil good moral values such as respecting parents, fostering friendships and cultivating cooperation among the kids,” said Hazlan.

“The participation fee was RM40 but with the funds, we will be able to lower the fees for the upcoming camp in August,” he added.
