KUCHING, June 17: Democratic Action Party (DAP) Sarawak has extended food aid to seven families in Hua Joo Park who are affected by the Movement Control Order (MCO).

DAP Sarawak chairman Chong Chiang Jen in a statement today said for the seven families who are staying at a workshop compound, their sole bread earners are all daily-paid workers.

“Due to MCO, they could not work and for them, ‘no work no pay’, and immediately their family income stopped.

“As they are in dire need for food aid, I have today, together with my assistant, Michael Kong Feng Nian, delivered some food aid to the families,” said Chong who is also Kota Sentosa assemblyman and Stampin MP.

Chong noted so far, these seven families have yet to receive any food aid from the Welfare Department.

“We hope the Resident Office and Welfare Department can expedite the food aid to those really in need,” he added. – DayakDaily.
