The Zakat contribution was presented to Dr. Haji Nik Mohd Azlan Bin Abdul Hadi, Vice President of MAIK at an event held in Hotel Perdana, Kota Bharu, Kelantan.

“As AFFIN ISLAMIC is one of local Islamic banking institutions that manages and distributes most of its Zakat and charity contribution by ourselves, we always tried to spread the contribution to different states in order to help more underprivileged people,” said En. Nazlee Khalifah, Chief Executive Officer, AFFIN ISLAMIC.

For this year itself, AFFIN ISLAMIC has contributed more than RM750,000 Zakat contribution in various states as its commitment in reaching out to the poor and needy nationwide.

Besides giving out cash contribution, the Bank also had some previous projects included building and repairing houses for the hardcore poor and other activities to equip the underprivileged children with necessary knowledge and education.
