Touching Lives

Everyone needs a little help sometimes — a boost to cross life’s hurdles; a light to lead in times of darkness.

Touching Lives is a double bill of hope and purpose told through the personal stories of Zakat beneficiaries, Mr Salleh Bin Thahib and Madam Jainah Binte Awang; and their social workers whose tireless support and friendship have helped lift them up.

Zakat is obligatory contributions by Muslims and one of the five pillars of Islam. A mission that goes beyond the giving of financial aid, Zakat empowers the needy and less fortunate with the means to help themselves. Through the support of the community, Zakat strives to provide those left behind with an opportunity to overcome life’s challenges and build a brighter tomorrow.
