Royal foundation to continue aid to the needy


JOHOR BARU: The Yayasan Sultan Iskandar will continue to provide food packages to the needy on a daily basis, particularly those who have been affected by Covid-19.

Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar said the foundation would continue to provide such support in every district of the state.

“This is the only foundation with not a single staff, with every sen going to help the poor, ” he said.

Yayasan Sultan Iskandar not only helped the poor but also provided aid during natural disasters and even provided funds for education.

The current Ruler, Sultan Ibrahim, has his own foundation that provides education and welfare aid, scholarships to needy students, as well as medical aid for senior citizens and the disabled.

Allocations for this foundation, Yayasan Sultan Ibrahim, were donated from allowances received by His Majesty.

The Johor Sultanate, ever since the time of its second ruler Almarhum Sultan Sir Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar in 1899, has always donated allowances from the state government to aid the needy.

This practice continued during the time of Almarhum Sultan Iskandar Ibni Almarhum Sultan Ismail, where the allowance was channelled to Yayasan Sultan Iskandar.

According to the Royal Press Office, even when the late Sultan Iskandar was the eighth Yang di-Pertuan Agong between 1984 and 1989, his allowances from the Federal Government were channelled to the foundation.
