KUCHING, April 23: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Batu Kitang N13 Service centre received another 100 bags of rice from a generous member of the public in efforts to help those who are put under quarantine order in the constituency.

Batu Kitang assemblyman Lo Khere Chiang said the contribution is a courtesy of a personnel donation from Liew Yin Poh and his family.

According to Lo, his efforts in assisting the local community had been recognised by the members of the public, business community as well as philanthropists at large, which prompted them to also contribute in order to help the community.

“These contributions will be delivered to those who are affected by the quarantine order in Batu Kitang constituency.

“As of today, more than 100 individuals from 30 families in Batu Kitang constituency have been assisted,” he told reporters during the handing over ceremony, held at SUPP Batu Kitang service centre in 6th Mile, here today.

Lo noted he was informed about those who are being placed under the quarantine order by the local village head, community leaders and ‘Kapitan’.

“Out of 18 villages in the constituency, six of the villages have cases of people who are put under the quarantine order,” he added.

At the same time, Lo also conveyed his gratitude to everyone who have assisted the effort by contributing the necessities and through other means. — DayakDaily
