2. Short Film: “Ayah Saya Kaya”

YouTube | Zakat SG

Every year, Zakat Singapore puts out a short film to depict the stories of real people Zakat has touched, to allow the community to learn about one another, become motivated to share their blessings, and ultimately, to uplift the Singapore Muslim community together.

This year, we celebrate all units of families, and attempt to put into perspective, the prejudice our brothers and sisters face for their outward appearance despite being like the rest of us, individuals who work hard for the family, and contribute to the community via Zakat.

Watch the short film above and if it warmed the cockles of your heart, do share it on your socials!
