RM1.85M to support Sabah students in Middle East: Hajiji

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah government has approved RM1.85 million to ease the burden on more than 200 Sabah students currently studying in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.

His Prime Minister Datuk Seri Haji Noor (Picture) made the announcement at a meeting with Sabah students studying at universities in these three countries organized by Yayasan Sabah in Cairo, Egypt yesterday.

In a statement today, Hajiji said the state government understands the high cost of living students face in the Middle East, while the Sabah Welfare Foundation and Sabah Foundation are coordinating the aid.

“I want you all (Sabah students) to focus on your studies and take this opportunity to study the Qur’an and Hadis thoroughly. A deeper understanding will increase your intellectual worth, which will be beneficial to you when you return to serve the country,” Hajiji said.

At the gathering he also witnessed the delivery of RM10,000 for the purchase of books for the Sabah Foundation Library here from the Sabah Islamic Religious Council (MUIS) and a Hadrah set (a type of musical instrument set) valued at RM4,000 from Perbadanan Baitulmal Negeri Sabah.

The Sabah Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation also contributed computers to the Egypt Students Association.

The Prime Minister shared morning tea with the congregation’s students before flying to Mecca with his wife, Datin Seri Juliah Salag, to perform the Umrah. -Bernama
