Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz said the financial assistance to the B40 group like "Makcik Kiah" will not end in May as the government will continue to help in a form of Household Living Aid in June.

Under the stimulus package announced by the Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin today, households earning less than RM4,000 per month would receive RM1,600 in total, where RM1,000 would be paid in April and the balance in May.
