Many Helping Hands
To alleviate some of the social pressures and challenges faced by under privileged Muslims within the mosque vicinity, SWMC has embarked on a holistic intervention programme called Programme “IHSAN” (Compassion).
It targets the Zakat-receiving families – be it a married couple or single men and women, senior citizens, youth and young children. Events and activities includes both social and spiritual development, ranging from skills upgrading like cooking and sewing, sports, health screenings, festive celebrations (Ramadhan and Eid), family budgeting, camps, seminars, religious lectures and clinics.
SWMC works closely with other community partners like Yayasan Mendaki, South West CDC, Family Service Centres and social service agencies within the boundary to connect these zakat-receiving families to appropriate programmes
