Volunteer Team Offers Free Funeral Services For Besut Poor

BESUT, Sept 23 — The less fortunate people in the district here who could not afford to pay for the funeral services of their family members can now call a team of seven volunteers to do it for free.

Besides claiming the deceased body from the hospital, the team will also ensure that family members will not experience any burden during the whole funeral process.

The team known as ‘Tim Amal Jenazah Besut’ led by Mohd Azizul Azli Mohd Sani, 36, was formed in the middle of last year as an initiative to serve the community and as a way to gain life motivation.

Mohd Azizul Azli who is a contractor said the team now has four hearses, of which two were placed at Surau Kampung Gaung in Jertih, and one each at Ulul Albab Mosque and Kampung Tok Has Mosque.

“Besides managing funerals in this district, we have also sent bodies to other states such as Penang and Johor without any charge. We are helping people sincerely because we don’t want the next-of-kin to face hardship as they grieve over their lost loved ones,” he told Bernama when met recently.

He added that the hearse driver also did not receive any fixed income or allowance but they offered their services voluntarily. However, if there is any contribution from any quarter, the money will be credited into the funeral management fund of others.
