What other support is available for the Zakat Beneficiaries?
In our efforts to outreach to the less privilege Muslim families, Al-Khair Mosque Social Development Department provides support beyond the financial assistance through distribution of Fidyah vouchers and groceries (subject to availability), conducting Islamic Learning Programme and Befriending service.
What is Befriending Service?
The Befriending service aims is to visit the homes of people such as low-income elderly, people suffering from chronic illnesses or people with disabilities (PWD). Most of the time, these group of people are identified as at risk of having low social support, and isolated from the community due to their prevailing conditions.
Our Befrienders play a crucial role in providing companionship and offer emotional support to our Zakat Beneficiaries through regular home visits.
