KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 9 (Bernama) – Antarabangsa, a non-governmental organisation from Malaysia has continued its efforts to help Muslims in Cambodia this year by sending 20 cattle for the poor there to celebrate Eid-ul Adha.

Its head Dr Mustapha Ahmad Marican said the cattle will be distributed to selected villages with the target groups being the poor, orphans and tahfiz (religious school) students in the interior areas.

“This year, the villages include Kampung Bojuri, Mondokiri, Pak Phou and Kampung 31,” he told Bernama Wednesday.

Mustapha said all the villages are located in the interior areas, and the lifes of the villagers who are farmers have been affected by the heavy rains in Cambodia and the falling price of rubber.

This year Antarabangsa obtained 20 cattle from Malaysia, including the Federal Territories Ministry, Wisma Putra, the Public Service Commission and the Prime Minister’s Department.
