“In this Ramadan, we distribute donation in a total of Rp 671,800,000 to 1,752 underprivileged people. Besides to help our brothers and sisters, this donation is also a form of reward to those who have shared their knowledge and power for goodness,” uttered Head of South Jakarta BAZIS, Sutriana Leila, Thursday (7/17).
Meanwhile, South Jakarta Mayor Syamsuddin Noor told that with this donation, it could develop a greater sense of belonging.
