With the prices of everything on the constant rise, the rakyat is definitely feeling the pinch like never before. Luckily, the caring Selangor state government has come up with a plan to help the lower-income group in buying basic necessities.

During the tabling of Budget 2018, Selangor MB Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali introduced a programme called ‘Kasih Ibu Smart Selangor’ (KISS) to provide aid for poor mothers.

It was estimated that 30,000 mothers will benefit from this programme, which is set to launch in early 2018.

Here’s how the programme works:

Upon successful application, each mother will receive a ‘Kiss’ card that allows them to shop for food items and groceries, amounting to RM200 per month.

The balance cannot be carried forward to subsequent months and the fixed amount will be reloaded automatically every month.

Kiss card holders can shop at selected grocery stores and supermarkets that are registered with the government. All transactions are wireless.

  3. Bread
  4. Biscuits
  5. Eggs
  6. Sugar and salt
  7. Spices
  8. Flour
  9. Cooking oil
  10. Vegetables
  11. Chicken, beef, lamb and fish
  12. Soap and detergent
  13. Diapers for babies and adults
  14. Dairy products (fresh milk, milk powder, condensed milk)
  15. School uniform and equipment (shoes, bags, books, stationery)

 

So, who’s eligible under this programme?

To be able to benefit from this initiative, one must be:

  1. A Malaysian citizen
  2. Born in Selangor or has been staying in Selangor for 10 years
  3. A registered voter in Selangor
  4. A mother or single mother who has a child/children below 21 years old
  5. Has a household income below RM2,000 per month

As of now, the application can only be done manually as the online registration is currently unavailable (coming soon).

All you need to do is to download the application form here, and submit the completed form to the state assemblyman’s office. Alternatively, you can get the printed form at either one of these locations:

  • Pejabat Ahli Dewan Negeri / Penyelaras Dewan Negeri
  • Pejabat Ahli Parlimen / Penyelaras Parlimen
  • Pejabat Ketua-Ketua Kampung Tradisi, Kampung Baru, Kampung Bagan, Ketua Komuniti India, Pejabat Ahli Majlis
  • Pusat Wanita Berdaya

This noble initiative is part of the Selangor state government’s effort in acknowledging a mother’s role in a family, while simultaneously empowering them financially.

So guys, spread this good news and help out as many mothers as possible!
