KUCHING, Mar 24: The Sarawak Muaythai Association (PMNS) together with Sarawak Press Photographer Association (SPPA) delivered 100 packs of food and drinks to frontline personnel today for their efforts in combatting Covid-19.

The freshly cooked meals were delivered by members of SPPA to areas where police and armed forces personnel were manning roadblocks in the city and medical staff of Poliklinik Kuching.

PMNS president Jumaat Ibrahim said this was part of their initiative to thank the frontliners working very hard on 24-hours operations not just to keep the state safe but to educate the public on the importance of cooperating with the Movement Control Order (MCO).

“We hope that our donations can at least ease the burden of our frontliners who do not have the time to cook or go out to buy food. While the rest of us are resting comfortably at home, these people are working on full swing.

“I also hope that all Sarawakians will abide to the order and advise to just stay at home,” Jumaat added.

One Poliklinik Kuching assistant medical officer Siti Nur Aziema Jamaludin who came out to receive the food pack thanked PMNS, SPPA and members of the public for their concern.

“Thank you for thinking of us. Most important, please stay at home, practice social distancing, lets us all help Ministry of Health to fight Covid-19 together,” she said. —DayakDaily
