KAMPAR: The Kampar Umno division has presented Hari Raya goodies to 40 poor families here. 

Perak Umno Youth chief Datuk Dr Zambry Abd Kadir, accompanied by Kampar Umno Youth division chief Syed Aminuddin Syed Nordin and division members, visited the families and handed over the food to them yesterday. 

Among the recipients was 85-year-old Fatimah Pandak, whose husband died of an illness three years ago. 

“I am very happy when people come to visit me and bring me food for the coming celebration.  

“It’s like an early Hari Raya celebration for me,” said Fatimah, who is staying alone in a wooden house here. 

Each family was given rice, sugar and flour worth about RM70. 

Clothes were also given to 93 orphans in the area. 

Syed Aminuddin said the event was an annual activity organised by the division to help those who were less fortunate. 

“We hope that everyone regardless of his or her financial situation is able to celebrate Hari Raya,” he added.
