PLUS Malaysia Bhd contributed RM150,000 to 300 hardcore poor at PPR Lembah Subang 2 in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, as part of its zakat distribution.

Its managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said the highway concessionaire paid RM17mil in total based on its 2018 earnings.

“In Selangor, we paid RM2.77mil in zakat and some of it was distributed to the needy such as those living at PPR Lembah Subang 2,” he said at the distribution ceremony.

The 300 selected recipients received RM500 each at the event held at the PPR Lembah Subang 2 community hall in the presence of Selangor Housing and Urban Living Committee chairman Haniza Talha.

Haniza thanked PLUS for the initiative and suggested that in the future, aid could also be channelled in the form of community economic and income-generating programmes.

“We would like corporate bodies to pair up with government agencies to do community outreach. We want to conduct programmes tailored for these poor families to earn additional income.

“I welcome efforts such as business opportunities at the highway’s rest-and-recreation areas provided to these poor families.

“The government is always committed to helping these communities too and we have had numerous activities at PPR Lembah Subang and its vicinity,” she added.
