KUCHING, March 30: Ten families from Taman Duranda, Kpg Duras and Kpg Sikog, in need of food supply amid the movement control order (MCO), received a lifeline from Habitat for Indigenous and Urban Program (Hidup).

Its president, George Young Si-Ricord Junior, said the non-governmental organisation (NGO) immediately arranged to deliver food supply after learning of their predicament from local contacts.

“Hidup’s first instinct was to coordinate and generate awareness among friends and supporters to donate essential food items,” he said in a statement.

George urged the people to come together and reach out to the rural communities in need, as many low-income families were facing challenges to feed their families during the MCO.

“They said their income are severely affected and their livelihood have changed for the worse. Their food was barely enough for their families,” he said.

George added that Hidup will continue to raise the plight of families in need, while pledging to do its best to ease their anxiety by providing essential food items.
