Assalammualaikum wr wb,
For those who just subscribed to this newsletter, here’s a little background of this project. In December 2015, we raised about $30,000 SGD for this wakf project. And as advised by our advisors to give out the amount to the beneficiary in phases. In January 2016, we made the first trip to hand over the first 100 million rupiah ( Equivalent to $10,150 – after currency exchange ). Just a few weeks ago, our team went up again on the 19th April 2016, to handover the next 100 million rupiah for this development. This project is expected to complete by January 2017.
We are glad to share with you the progress of this development.

Here is our co-founder Fazli Mansor (on the left) and Ustaz Syamsul (Imam Mt Tosari).
Alhamdulillah, we can see that this project is way ahead of its time and is already 50% completed.
Handing over the second batch of 100 million rupiah.
The team stayed overnight up there and had a trip to Mt Bromo after solat subuh which was just beside Mt Tosari. They returned to Singapore on 21st of April 2016.
