KUCHING, April 9: Sarawak Federation of Chinese Associations president Datuk Richard Wee calls on all Sarawakians to put aside political differences and combine resources to make it through this challenging time.

He requested all Sarawakians to pool resources to support the frontliners to allow them to efficiently distribute food to the needy whether in urban or rural areas.

It is also his call that all should join hands to ensure that there is enough personnel protective equipment (PPE) for all frontliners in hospitals and clinics, as well as those distributing food and monitoring public compliance with the movement control order (MCO).

“We can all work together for the betterment of the society. And at this unprecedented challenging time, we should just put politics on the back burner and come together as one.

“Unite and share our resources to achieve a more effective outreach to the needy and assistance to all the frontline personnel for them to discharge their duty without having to be concerned over supply issues,” Wee told DayakDaily.

He appealed to all to find a common ground and shared vision and play the part of ‘anak Sarawak’.

“After all, we are all Sarawakians, we must have the heart and our concern for our ‘anak Sarawak’…

“Let us try to find the common ground and shared visions instead of dividing ourselves in our self-interest and protecting our own turf. It is time to show our unity for our beloved Sarawak.

“Let us do this for the sake of Sarawak and play our part of ‘anak Sarawak’ when the state needs us now.

“Do offer whatever assistance one can; any assistance offered from the heart will always be appreciated.

“For those who can’t help physically or financially, staying home and keeping your family away from Covid-19 is already the greatest help,” said Wee. — DayakDaily
