Putrajaya's Tabung Harapan has broken the RM200 million mark, less than a week before the fund's close.

At 3pm today, the fund had collected RM200,032,580.24.

Tabung Harapan was set up by the Pakatan Harapan administration in May to allow the public to contribute to efforts to reduce the federal government's debts.

It will stop collecting donations on Dec 31.

The government has said that the National Audit Department would audit the fund's account receipt and payment statement to ensure it is managed with integrity.

The Finance Ministry will also appoint an external audit firm to audit Tabung Harapan's accounts in line with Section 7 of the Audit Act.
