KUCHING, Mar 31: While other churches are facing almost zero income and donations due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), the Sarawak Chinese Methodist Church is, in fact, assisting the poor and the needy in both urban and rural areas.

The Sarawak Chinese Methodist Church president Reverend Tie King Tai said pastors from SCAC have been going to the ground to assist regardless of race and religions.

“We have no problem with finance. We have always been self-sufficient. In fact, we are going all out to assist those in need, be they in the urban or rural areas,” Tie told DayakDaily today.

He said, Sarawak Chinese Methodist Church also gives donations and personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals and other frontliners who have to work during MCO.

Tie also said that Sarawak Chinese Methodist Church also assists its Iban counterpart, the Sarawak Iban Annual Conference, through its central pool funds.

“We have been assisting SIAC. But we too have Bahasa Malaysia and English congregations which we have reached out too. This includes reaching out to the longhouses,” he said.

Tie said during the present MCO period, all services are done online.—DayakDaily
