KUALA LUMPUR — April 22, 2019: A welfare home in Pekan and the widow of a former aide today confirmed receiving financial contributions from former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak a few years ago.  

Najib, currently the MP for Pekan, was at that time the patron of the home which accommodated orphans.

According to Abdul Munir Othman, a trustee of Rumah Penyayang Tun Abdul Razak, a cheque for RM400,000 was issued for the home in 2015, with the money used to pay staff salaries, buy food, clothes and books for the children.
