In appreciation of the good services and deeds of senior citizens to the community, family, country and religion, this year’s International Senior Citizens Day was celebrated by holding a mass sunat hajat prayer as well as the reading of Surah Yasiin and doa kesyukuran.
Among those present was Dayang Rostinah binti Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Sura Pahlawan Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Tahir, the Acting Director of Community Development. Carrying the theme, THE FIGHT AGAINST AGE DISCRIMINATION, it is hoped the event would motivate support for the country’s aspiration of building a Zikir nation by involving senior citizens. This is because the senior citizens’ contributions to nation building are very important and valuable.
