BUBUR lambuk was distributed to villagers for Ramadan, cooked the traditional way by Guar Kapar Village Community Management Council (MPKK) members and volunteers from Pengkalan Bogor near Kepala Batas, Penang.
The event held at Pusat Belia Penaga in Pengkalan Bogor was organised by the Penang Youth and Sports Committee through the Penang Youth Development Corporation.
Guar Kapar MPKK chairman Mohd Yusri Mustafa said due to the movement control order, the number of participants was limited.
Mohd Yusri said the bubur lambuk took about five to six hours to prepare.
“We are giving it to more than 500 villagers in Penaga, ” he said.
Meanwhile, the MPKK also gave away food hampers to 20 hardcore poor folk including single mothers, the disabled and senior citizens, courtesy of Penaga state constituency coordinator Aida Yusof Rawa.
Each recipient took home a rice packet, noodle packets, cooking oil, sardines, flour, milk, sugar and bread.
The MPKK also gave zakat (tithe) vouchers each worth RM100 to eight needy people to reduce their financial burden during the fasting month.
