Harian Metro organised for the first time a mass circumcision or Berkhatan programme under the Titipan Kasih Harian Metro banner together with KPJ Tawakkal KL Specialist Hospital I Kuala Lumpur.

Held within a day on December 19, 2020, the programme involved a total of 20 children from the Rumah Kebajikan Kasih Harmoni orphanage home in Kampung Paya Jaras Dalam, Selangor and from surrounding B40 families.

All participants had to comply with the strict standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by KPJ Tawakkal KL, including having to undergo swab tests for all participants and crew one day in advance.

The programme’s objective was primarily to ease the burden of the B40 families and underprivileged communities, especially during the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.
