For the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, the involvement of youths in together conducting the rites of sacrifice for the ministry was seen as a step towards empowering youths in various activities.
Some 20 youths from the Youth Development Centre, PPB, were involved in the skinning, cutting, weighing and packaging of the sacrificial meat at Kampung Kuala Lurah. The initiative was an approach to instil and cultivate a noble attitude in the youths themselves to assimilate the Islamic laws aside from empowering volunteerism and mutually helping one another.
The distribution of the sacrificial meat for the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports and the departments under it was officiated by Yang Berhormat Retired Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin, Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports and Datin Paduka Dr. Hajah Norlila binti Dato Paduka Haji Abd Jalil, Permanent Secretary at the ministry. 4 cows and 2 buffaloes were sacrificed. 220 of the poor and destitute as well as orphans received the sacrificial meat.
